Ematic eGlide Prism tries 3D in budget frame

Ematic hoped to stand out among budget tablet designers on Thursday with a unique, semi-3D entry into the mix. The seven-inch eGlide Prism is one of the still rare entries in the class that runs Android 4.0 and comes with both a special 3D-capable video player app and red-blue 3D glasses. The company has been caught exaggerating somewhat, though, as it claims to have support for 2160p 3D videos despite a single-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM that would only do 720p 2D on any other Android tablet.

Along with performance choices, most of the cost savings comes from an 800x480 display and 8GB of storage. It does find room for a front camera and a microSD card slot.

The price is the selling point for the tablet. Although the eGlide Prism officially costs $216, its only known retailer, TV broadcaster NBC's online store, is carrying it for $175 at normal pricing and $157 at a day-one sale price. It should be on sale now.
