  • A. It has built in Wi-Fi. Find the settings icon on one of the screens. Slide your finger from right to left on the screen 2 times and touch the settings icon. It will be the first one on the right side of the screen. Turn on the Wi-Fi by touching the word Wi-Fi and it will show that it is on or off. It must be on to work. NOTE: You must have a wireless network for this to work. If not, keep the wireless on and go to your MacDonalds, Burger King, or Airports where you can connect automatically. Hope this helps!

  • A. There has to be a wi-fi signal available- a router at your house, Starbucks, hotel lobby , etc- and you have to know the password if there is one to get on to the signal, just like with a laptop computer.

  • A. being able to connect with wifi means that it has a radar sensor inside it that will pick up on any wireless signal with in range to it. You must either own a wireless service at your home or be in an area that offers free wireless internet.

  • A. It means you can get wifi on the device if you have a connection available. That can be on a home network, or at a wifi "hotspot" such as Starbucks, McDonalds, and most putlic libraries. The wifi setting arrives off by default. You press on. Most home networks have a security key that must be entered to gain access. Standardly, public hotspots require only clicking on the network name and accepting, though some may also require a security code to be entered.

  • A. You have to have wireless router connected to an internet service. The wi-fi option is in the settings, you have to turn it on then it will search for a network. If you have one available to use you might have to sign into it depending on whether it is password protected or not.

  • A. It will pick up wi-if just like a cell phone will or a laptop. you will have to go in and set up your password and such unless you are using and unlocked wi-fi signal. I don't recommed that as that is how other people can get your info. If you are trying to use wi-fi at home, you will have to have internet service first, then a wireless router that is set up for using your internet wirelessly! Hope that helps.

  • A. No you don’t have to pay a monthly fee you can just use the Wi-Fi when it is available But if you ever want to use this on the go you can upgrade this because it have 3-4g mobile broadband connections, Some carrier charge an additional 10 dollars if you already have a plan with them or you can link it to your cell phone for FREE depending on the phone you have

The Ematic people have said in one post that it does and you can video chat & such but then in another said it does not have a camera and therefore would not be able to video chat. Just looking for some clarity. Thanks!

Okay, this item arrived today and I must say I am quite pleased with it! Previous reviews mentioned the touchpad, specifically, so I want to tell you that I have had no problems whatsoever. I did not even have to calibrate it at all, which if need be, CAN be done. It was totally accurate on such sites as my on-line banking, YouTube, and FaceBook--even selecting the smallest of gui's. Possibly, other users did not take off the protective sheet. If you read the product's description fully and understand that it's purpose is for casual web browsing and the like, I think you will be as excited about this as I am. Clearly, its a great deal for the money and while I am sure that the $200 tablets will be more cutting edge in a variety of ways, this one looks, feels, and performs great. I attached to my home WiFi in less than 30 seconds and the same goes for my e-mail accounts. Folks, this is a value-priced, entry level, but slick little gadget.

After reading reviews I was hesitant on buying but due to my previous dealings with Walmart's replacement plan I opted to buy this, knowing either way I would either return it, or if it did indeed screw up, I would be compensated. The tablet unfortunately was already turned on right out of the package when I plugged it in, so unfortunately I'm assuming I will be having battery problems early on since it didn't get a full 6 hour charge. Other than that, for the price, the tablet is great; however, my purpose was to please my 8-year-old since her mp3 had previously broken, this was only $20 more. I've only had it a couple days and I've been on it more than her. For music and photo purposes its great, everything transferred very easily. Angry birds plays very well as well as the other few games loaded. I'm a little disappointed on the app store but I'm sure if I search around on it more I'll find some apps that appeal to me.

The reviews that complain about the touch screen, seem to be unaware that this item has a RESISTIVE touch screen rather than a CAPACATIVE touch screen. The fact that the price is so low SHOULD clue people in, that something is different. With that said, the device performs EXACTLY as I would expect a resistive touch screen to perform. There is a decent camera, there is NO HDMI output. Internal memory is limited to 2GB (expandable by up to 32GB with Micro SD card). Netflix will NOT work on this device. It is NOT rooted, so the GooglePlay store will NOT work. The AmazonAndroid store WILL however install. The Ematic store does indeed show that there are ZERO items available. All in all, it is what one would expect for this low price. If you want more, then expect to pay more.

Got mine in yesterday. Charged the battery up and did some exploring. Took a picture or two and they were VERY blurry. Connecting to Wi-fi was easy. Used three different types of stylus pens and all of them scratched the screen. Getting on the www was somewhat difficult. There is NOTHING in my app store. It says no apps today come back tomorrow..........is that something they thought would be funny to do to people who buy this product? I'm sure someone out there is tickled at that but I am not that person. Completely frustrating tablet and the company cannot legally claim their tablet has these options included when it doesn't. It does have the games apps included however. The capacitive touch screen is somewhat un-sensitive but usable. Either you'll get lucky and the one you receive works or you'll be like most of us and it doesn't. As for me, I'm returning it because I refuse to pay 64 dollars for my kids to play a game of Angry Birds.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

When I first saw it I was so excited. When I got home and charged it up, I was disappointed because I realized that it does not "move" or "respond" as fast as most touch tablets. I have has a Nook Color before and LOVED IT! This "Ematic Genesis Series with WiFi 7" Touchscreen Tablet PC Featuring Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Operating System" is far from a Nook. I just hate that it moves slower and has a slower response time. What I mean by response time is; when I try to click on something, I have to hold my finger there at the clickable link for a couple of seconds before it will "click" and respond. It is very irritating. I wish I had saved my money and bought another Nook but I needed something now; so that I could download my college textbooks. One last thing. It has its own app shop and there are not very many apps to chose from. NOTHING at all like Google Play. As a matter of fact, the apps are not the same apps you will find on Google Play either. When I went to the Google Play site to try to download apps, it would not let me. :(
