Budget-friendly phone maker Ematic recently revealed its most recent entry into the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) market, the 9.7-inch eGlide Pro X tablet.

Ematic’s president, Roy Rayn, said that one of the reasons why they are confident its new devices would perform well in the market is because they listen to their customers’ needs collating all features to meet the demands of both professional and self-made tech enthusiasts.
eGlide Pro X sports a powerful processor clocked at 1.2GHz paired with 400MHz GPU and complemented by 1GB RAM. Basically, these specs mean this tablet will be competing in the mid-range market. It also comes with 8GB internal memory and 5GB cloud storage. If this is not enough a space, you can always purchase a microSD card as it is supported. Notably, this slate comes with 9.7 inches screen featuring 4:3 aspect ratio and fairly high resolution.

Having this tablet will also give owners access to thousands of apps stored in Ematic’s App Shop.
