That is Not correctshake head: Most of these Ematic's, if not all do allow apps on the SD card. They even ask when downloading if you'd like to put it on the SD card, or something similar.
Have you actually done this without using a third party app on a rooted tablet? In the past on 3.0 and newer android it would not save apps or app data to external_sd even when it asks if you want to.

Well that's good to hear for those that got in on this one, I just knew other users were reporting that they couldn't move apps to sd, but maybe it was just specific apps that blocked it. I know it's a feature that many tablets do not support.

Could you explain just the hell you're talking about?
Point being that they need to show these tablets running a killer app in a very successful way and that too by attaching to very desirable need.

just depends what you want it for. think outside the box.

some ideas where horsepower isnt necessary:

in car entertainment
dedicated home lighting/hvac control
music player
image and pdf viewer

blah i could go on and on but there is no point.
Hmm..

In car entertainment -> it's going to be a crap experience with frequent stuttering because the lack of cpu power. I thought of this too, and in-car entertainment systems would go well together with Freedompop's OverdrivePro.

Image/PDF viewer -> resolution is crap, which I think is important for image/PDF viewers. Once you try to scroll a page in a PDF viewer, you'll most likely experience horrible stutters. Even my HTC One stutters when viewing PDF files.

Music player -> isn't it just better to use a mp3 player for that?

Dedicated home lightning / hvac control -> If you got the money for that kind of system to be installed at home in the first place, wouldn't you just get a ipad mini or nexus 7, something in those lines?

depends. playback of local content and GPS shouldnt be a big deal. particularly if you are using an app to make the interface more car friendly.

also if you have a whiney kid surely there is some game or paint app they could pass the time with.

again, depends. if this is your cheapy bench tablet where you risk damaging a more expensive unit, it might make sense. im thinking like loading up a schematic and having the ability to zoom if needed for quick bench reference.

image viewer.. just something to preview/share/pass around pictures at a party or 'in the field' while you are shooting pics. could serve as a way to get pics from your non-wifi camera to the web from your hotel room, for example (without worrying if you lose/break/have it stolen)

Maybe? again depends on use case. i could see tossing this on a stand in the kitchen connected to some bluetooth speakers streaming pandora or other web radio (or local content) and not worrying about splashes or dirty fingers.

yet again, it depends on your use case, this may not be your primary controller, but you might want one as a HUD prominently displayed (maybe non-removable) to display data from your HA system, and/or be a supplementary controller for a lesser used room or entrance to your house.



So the point im trying to make is that there are plenty of uses for cheap embedded technology and im only scratching the surface. Im not trying to convince you that this is what you SHOULD do with this tablet, im simply providing examples of things this thing would be useful for to get the wheels turning.

Yes, this may not be any that show on the Ematic website.


Yes, http://mttmobile.blogspot.com/201...7-pro.html



Yes, apps on the SD card are a go.
Google store? (But see above) Amazon Store is a Yes.(It's included in most)


I agree.

Please note actual box may state Android 4.0 however this item is actually running Android 4.1, you can verify this through the settings on the device. This error in printing on the box has allowed us to pass on the savings to you! so comes with a one year warranty direct from the manufacturer.

This is why they don't list a Model number.Confused

i have every reason to think it is this tablet:

I've snagged several of these cheap $30-$40 tablets when they go on sale, and while they are by no means powerhouse or full-feature tablets they do serve their purpose. I have one mounted beneath the upper cabinets in the kitchen to use for recipes or to watch videos on while cooking, 2 of them as HTPC remotes in different rooms, 1 as a digital picture frame on a stand in the family room, and 2 for my daughter - one mounted to the back of the headrest in the car to watch movies on, and another to carry around and play with. In all I have probably spent around $200 for 6 tablets which all serve their specific purposes very well. And then for my personal tablet I have a really nice Asus which of course blow them all away, but then again it was nearly 10 times more expensive as well.

My point is that these cheap off-brand tablets can definitely be useful, but they certainly aren't a replacement for having a solid good quality tablet for everyday use.

Actually, I think it is this one(there are many Ematic models @ 7"):

However, it does not show or say Google Play, which most of the models do not have.
Directly to the left of the tablet is a picture of the Google Play icon.
