When I think of buying a tablet, Walmart isn’t the first place I think of to buy one, then again Walmart is carrying more and more higher end things like the new iPhone. I never expected to see a new Apple product there, but there it is, you can walk in and buy one now. Ematic has just announced a new Android tablet with a price of only $129.99 and yes you can get it at Walmart. The tablet is inexpensive, it’s running Android 4.1 and it’s got a 1.2ghz dual core CPU inside along with an 8” capacitive screen with a 1024×768 resolution. The tablet comes with 8gb memory and 1gb ram, but there’s a microSD slot so you can expand the storage up to 32gb if need be and they’re even offering 5gb of cloud storage. The tablet comes complete with wi-fi, Bluetooth, USB and even an HDMI connection so you can play things on the big screen by mirroring it. One would think at such of low price the tablet might be this little plastic thing, but it’s not it’s got a full aluminum housing on it which I would personally prefer over plastic and I’m sure you would too. The EGP800 coems equipped with a 3000mAh battery that is supposed to provide up to ten hours of battery life and that’s just excellent in my opinion. I wouldn’t mind trying one of these out myself.. There’s a little more info below for you..
