Though you may not be familiar with the company known as Ematic, it’s probably time we all paid a bit more attention to it–thanks to their new eGlide Prism. This new 7″ tablet not only features Android’s latest 4.0 (a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system, but also features a display capable of displaying 3D videos at up to 2160p (we did the math–that’s twice the current 1080pHD standard). At 9mm thin and a little more than half a pound, you’ll also get 8GB of built-in memory, a MicroSD expansion slot, front-facing camera, and 5GB of cloud storage–the package even includes 3D glasses,a protective sleeve, headphones, USB cable and charger. Of course the eGlide Prism’s most impressive feature may be its price–it retails for $216, but can be found ShopNBC.com for a mere $157.

Samsung and Google Make the Galaxy Nexus Official

After weeks of speculation, Samsung and Google have finally made the latest Nexus phone official–and it’s called the Galaxy Nexus. This new flagship device, expected to hit the US, Europe and asia next month, will not only offer class-leading hardware (which includes a 4.65″ Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 1080p video camera and lag-free still camera), it will also be the first Android device to feature Android 4.0–also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.
