If you’ve never heard the name Ematic spoken in relation to Android tablets, don’t feel bad. The company isn’t exactly a household name, but it does produce some impressively cheap Android tablets. If you’re in the market for a low-budget Android tablet for yourself or a child, Ematic has just unveiled a new tablet that could be very compelling, called the Genesis Prime.
It features a 7-inch multitouch display and runs the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. This is the first tablet from Ematic that is Google-certified, offering complete access to Google Play. Specs are nothing too thrilling with a 800×480 display, a 1.1 GHz processor, a 400MHz GPU and 512MB of RAM. It’s also got a low-res (.3MP) front-facing camera for chats and battery life is rated at just 4.5 hours, but what do you want for under 80 bucks?
Internal storage is 4 GB, expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD card, and the tablet includes 5 GB of cloud storage. The Ematic Genesis Prime is available for purchase right now for just $79.99(USD).
