Tablets are many things, but one of those things isn’t cheap. The Ematic eGlide is an exception – a budget Android 4.0 tablet that will do (almost) everything you want a tablet to do.

The 7” tablet is powered by a 1 GHz processor, and has 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of on-board storage. On-board storage is supplemented by 5 GB of cloud storage and an SD card slot that can expand the memory by up to 32 GB. Microsoft Office software will come pre-loaded, as will the Kobo eReading app. There is a voice recorder on the device, and the press release says that the tablet can connect to HDTVs, which seems to indicate that there will be an HDMI port.

Nothing here is by any means state-of-the-art, but for the day-to-day reasons you actually use a tablet, it should be enough to satisfy those who aren’t picky about having the highest resolutions or the fastest processors. The only major downsides to this device are the lack of a front-facing camera and 3G connectivity, both of which will fairly be a dealbreaker for many.

The Ematic eGlide 7” tablet will be selling from Walmart.com for about $80.
