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.

I checked out their webpage, and every single product of theirs (they have so many different tablet models) looks really crappy / low quality. I understand this is a $40 tablet, but I don't think it's even worth wasting the money on this for anything. What are people planning to use this for? Skype? Email? Maybe the low resolution will help make it feel smoother despite the slow cpu, but I don't think it'll work well as a web browser or even email because the lack of resolution. Also in case this is your first Android, it's going to ruin the whole android experience.

I think these tablets can become insanely popular if donated to all 42nd street ladies. Just an idea for Ematic CEO.
42nd street ladies ... like Minnie Mouse and Ariel the Little Mermaid. 42nd street has not had a reputation as being filled with lady walkers of the night since the big gentrification push in 1990s.

List price $249.99, Now $39.99. Nice Joke.
maybe the 249 is referring to pesos.

My nephew got one of these and it was locked out of the Google Play Store.
Is this device still locked out?
Is there a way to get the play store on this tablet?

Thanks.
On the YouTube listed above he posts an alternative store in the comments. I don't understand why Play wouldn't work though.

maybe but if you look at the listing it mentions that the box and info will only say android 4.0 when its actually been upgraded to 4.1.

the one you linked says 4.1, the one i linked says 4.0.

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.

how does it compare spec wise to this UNIDEN tablet from last year?
http://slickdeals.net/f/5524282-Uniden-Android-4-0-7-Tablet-1GHz-4GB-up-to-32GB-mSD-Front-Camera-59-Big-Lots-B-M?v=1

the only thing i cant find is the ram on the UNIDEN but this EMATIC says its only 512mb.... seems kind of low if i wanted to play simple tablet games, doesnt it?

Agree. It's amazing how some will crap on a product line when they are trying to compare a crab-apple to a Red Delicious (i.e. "apple" to "apple" comparison). Some expect the Apple/iPad experience out of a $40 tablet which is very unlikely.

Instead, get the current Nexus 7 for around $150/$170 instead while it's on special since the Nexus 7.2 is coming out soon. Save that $250 from NOT buying an iPad to <insert your choice of activity here>.

It's irritating. I wish the seller just said what model this was. It seems like one of the models has Google Play and therefore would be a better deal...the other does not.

If you just want it for Skype, Kindle and Evernote, this is really quite a nice deal, especially for your kids....IF it's the right model.
