Android tablets are a dime a dozen nowadays, so something really needs to set new ones off from the competition. Today sees the release of yet another Android tablet, this one made by Ematic. In this case, it would seem that price would be the factor that sets this tablet off from the rest. Retailing for a slim $219.99, you still get loads of features that more expensive tablets offer.

The eGlide XL Pro 2 may have a slightly long and unwieldy name, but it is generally fitting for the long and unwieldy list of features. The tablet features a 10-inch touchscreen and comes preloaded with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The processor is a multi-core 1GHz beast and also features a 400MHz graphics processor.

 

"We're thrilled to launch the eGlide XL Pro 2, and add it to our expanding line of tablets which suit various needs and lifestyles," says Roy Rayn, General Manager of Ematic. "This tablet incorporates everything our consumers love about Ematic products: durability, productivity and affordability."
