Ematic tablets run on both the Windows and Android operating systems, depending on the year and model of the tablet. Originally, Ematic tablets were only produced with 7-inch and 10-inch screen sizes, but later introduced tablets with 7.9-inch, 8-inch, 8.9-inch, and 10.1-inch screen sizes. Any Ematic tablet that runs on the Android operating system will have ‘EGQ’ in the model number. On the contrary, Ematic tablets running on Windows operating systems will include ‘EWT’ in the model number. Ematic also produces tablets designed for educational purposes, and this series of tablets is known as the ‘FunTab.’ The FunTab usually comes preloaded with various educational games and apps teaching reading, math, science, and more. With parental controls, parents are able to adjust their children’s exposure to the internet.
Ematic tablets are relatively inexpensive compared to the other tablets on the market. Most Ematic tablets can be purchased for under $100 USD on the Ematic store page as well as on Amazon. Ematic tablets are commonly seen both in-person and online in Walmart and Best Buy locations across the United States.
