if you are a purist who accepts no Android powered tablet without the Mountain View folks’ nod of approval, then look no further than the new Ematic Genesis Prime 7″ Google Certified Android Tablet. running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and powered by a 1.1GHz processor, the Genesis Prime 7″ is Ematic’s first-ever slate to be Google-certified. so what’s the big deal about being Google Certified? well, maybe that’s quite not as critical for big players, but for smaller players like Ematic, it gives consumers a peace of mind that their device will have full access to the Google Play store, as well as the suite of Google Apps that most of us can’t live without by now. apart from that, you will find the usual garden variety of specs such as a 1.1GHz dual-core processor from Intel, 4GB of onboard storage, 5GB of cloud storage (no mention do microSD slot, though), 512GB of RAM, a multitouch display, a front-facing VGA camera, a USB 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio headphone jack, and a lithium-ion battery pack good for 4.5 hours of usage. the specs are less than impressive compared to the slew of offerings in the market right now. we admit that, but for just $79.99 a pop, you can’t really complain much, can you? yes. it is that affordable and besides, it is a little handy device that should be ample for most folks’ on-the-go entertainment needs. available now in six distinct colorful hues.
