$89 Ematic Twig is Mini-Tablet with Android 2.2 and 4.3″ Screen
This is the second new Ematic device in as many months. The other one is a 7″ touchscreen ereader that comes with Kobo eBooks and looks like a Sony Reader clone.
The most unusual thing about the Ematic Twig is its 4.3-inch 800 x 480 resolution TFT touchscreen. Most tablets have 7-inch and larger screens. The smaller screen definitely makes it a lot more portable and pocket-friendly. The device measures a mere 4.5″ x 3.0″ x 0.5″.
Underneath its diminutive frame, the Ematic Twig runs Android 2.2 and is powered by a undisclosed dual-core processor. It has Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and a g-sensor. The $89 model comes with 4GB of internal memory. There’s a second model that comes with 8GB of memory. That model, the Ematic Twig EL480B, costs $99. Both support microSD cards up to 16GB.
If size really doesn’t matter, the Ematic Twig should be a hit at those prices. There’s even a pink model for the ladies.
