    Very good tablet for the price!

    Customer review by CrazyForPugs

    5.0 stars by CrazyForPugs

    I purchased 4 of these for each of the grandkids (ages 3-12) and they are perfect for them for the price. I am unsure why the negative comments about the touch screen being non-responsive....because all 4 of the ones we got work perfectly! There is plastic on the tablet screen when it first comes out of the box, so perhaps they are not removing it?! Great purchase! Ignore the negative comments! Well worth the money!!

    great starter tablet

    Customer review by alohamomma

    5.0 stars by alohamomma

    Considering this cost only 10 dollars more than my mp3 (which was also ematic) I am estactic. I wish the battery lasted longer with downloading and updating. but otherwise I have no complaints. I broke the volume button on my mp3 and also wanted a PDA that I could carry in my purse. This fit the bill with wifi access to boot. DO you know they still sell the palm pilot and it is over $200 still. outrageous! Is this worth it? yes. But if you can wait (which I didn't want to) I imagine black friday will have great sales.

    Love this tablet!! Amazing buy

    Customer review by Jojotx

    5.0 stars by Jojotx

    I really love this tablet!! after enjoying this product for personal use, I decided to share it with my patients in my dental practice to keep them occupied while in the dental chair or even while waiting in the lobby. What i didnt realize was that patients would keep asking me where i got it from and how much i paid for it-- it was a hit! Everyone loved watching movies and browsing the internet. It features great quality and great battery life which makes life easy! And you just cant beat the price... Its a great buy for all.

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • WiFi.......just like a laptop computer the tablet has the ability to connect to your wireless router/modem for a internet connection.. VERY easy to setup.

    • 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.

    • It can ACCESS WiFi, but you have to have your own connection already.

    • 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.

    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!
    by Suchalady27 11/9/2012
    • Yes, it has a front facing camera that you could use for such purposes.

    • Sorry about the confusion. This Genesis does have a front facing camera. I think we answered a question for another model and that was were the confusion came from. Again, this model (the Genesis) does include a front facing camera.

    • 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
