What's a Tablet PC?

Tablet PCs, like the Ematic EBW405 7" 4GB eBook Reader And Tablet, are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. Most tablets are based on a smaller operating system, which allows you to purchase and download additional applications from supported stores. Tablet PCs do not have a CD/DVD drive and will not run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Tablet PCs function as a secondary device for casual entertainment purposes, and are not meant to replace a computer. They are ideal for use around the home and on the go with Wi-Fi or 3-4g mobile broadband connections (pay as you go, contract may be required for service).

  • A. As far as the eReader is concerned: ***you won't be able to read Nook or Kindle ebooks on this.*** It has KOBO, its own ebook store. Some are free, some aren't. Try to find another third-party app that sells epub or pdf formats, as the built-in book reader will recognize pdf. NOTE: when you first try to directly open an epub ebook, you'll get a message that says "no handler" or something that says that there's no installed app to open it. Here's how to work around that: -If you downloaded the FILE EXPERT app from APPOKE, tap on FILE EXPERT from the menu (after pressing the HOME button, the one shaped like a house). -Tap on MY FILES. -Go to SD CARD (this is where you find files you uploaded from your computer via USB to your tablet, regardless of whether you have a MICRO SD card physically installed). -Scroll down with your finger until you find the desired file (in this case, I used the included ebook ). -DON'T TAP, but HOLD DOWN your finger or stylus on the file for 2-3 seconds. A menu "FILE OPERATIONS" will appear. Easiest to see all of it in PORTRAIT view (long and skinny view). - Tap on MORE... Another menu, OPERATION, will appear. -Tap on OPEN WITH. Another menu appears. -Tap on MORE... -Yet another menu appears. Different apps and options will appear on the menu. -Tap on EBOOKREADER. -Enjoy the book.

  • A. They can come from many places, but not necessary anywhere. The device has Kobo software preloaded, so things you buy from Kobo will automatically sync. You can buy from other sellers too if their books are available in epub or non DRM mobi formats but will need software like Calibre or Adobe Digital Editions to push the books onto the device. Most epub books you buy will probably have digital rights management, which prevents you from buying the book once then giving it to other people for free. Software like Adobe Digital Editions will let you manage the DRM and sync these books with the device. It's a free download and simple enough to use when you get the hang of it. You would also use the Adobe Digital Editions, for example, to manage ebooks borrowed from the library. These upload same as books you own, but "time out" after a time (typically two or three weeks).

NOTE: this review is TL;DR. But you may find it helpful to you. Keep in mind that this is not exactly a full-fledged tablet. If you want something as nifty as an iPad or the Galaxy Tab, then this isn't for you. It's more like a Kindle or Nook on steroids. I got this yesterday, so I'm still exploring some things. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TIPS: It's not extremely fast, but it gets the job done. Make sure you calibrate the touch settings first. You can do this by: -Pressing the HOME button (the one that looks like a house). -Go to SETTINGS. -Tap on TOUCH PANEL CALIBRATION. -Follow the instructions. If you do this, it'll make your life much easier with this device. I don't really like the included software suite (OfficeSuite). You can view Microsoft Office files, but you can't edit them unless you purchase the activation (~$15). Download Kingsoft Office instead. It's free, and you can actually edit and create new documents and such on it. Make sure you SAVE your work, kay guys? The included file explorer (EXPLORER) is not that great. I recommend downloading FILE EXPERT from the installed APPOKE MARKET. To use the APPOKE Android market, you'll need to register. ***This tablet is not compatible with the Google Play Android market.*** You cannot download the market app nor download apps from the Google Play website. I personally called Google Play Customer Support, and they specifically told me that the EMATIC EBW404 is +NOT+ supported by Google Play. My wish is that they add support soon. The APPOKE market isn't as comprehensive as the Google Play market. If you want more apps than APPOKE has available, might I suggest downloading the GETJAR app market? Most are free, and a lot of the same apps are in the Google Play market. I had some trouble watching YOUTUBE on the mobile website and the desktop version as well. I recommend downloading TUBEMATE from GETJAR. You don't necessarily have to +download+ videos with TUBEMATE; it lets you watch videos. As far as the eReader is concerned: ***you won't be able to read Nook or Kindle ebooks on this.*** It has KOBO, its own ebook store. Some are free, some aren't. Try to find another third-party app that sells epub or pdf formats, as the built-in book reader will recognize pdf. NOTE: when you first try to directly open an epub ebook, you'll get a message that says "no handler" or something that says that there's no installed app to open it. Here's how to work around that: -If you downloaded the FILE EXPERT app from APPOKE, tap on FILE EXPERT from the menu (after pressing the HOME button, the one shaped like a house). -Tap on MY FILES. -Go to SD CARD (this is where you find files you uploaded from your computer via USB to your tablet, regardless of whether you have a MICRO SD card physically installed). -Scroll down with your finger until you find the desired file (in this case, I used the included ebook <Alice in Wonderland.epub>). -DON'T TAP, but HOLD DOWN your finger or stylus on the file for 2-3 seconds. A menu "FILE OPERATIONS" will appear. Easiest to see all of it in PORTRAIT view (long and skinny view). - Tap on MORE... Another menu, OPERATION, will appear. -Tap on OPEN WITH. Another menu appears. -Tap on MORE... -Yet another menu appears. Different apps and options will appear on the menu. -Tap on EBOOKREADER. -Enjoy the book. ***Be sure you charge the tablet when you open it from the box.*** The battery initially doesn't have a whole lot of charge. It charges fastest when you use the included AC adapter. Sometimes, like any other computer or electronic device, it freezes. Turn the tablet over. About an inch diagonal from the mini USB port is a small hole. That's the reset button. It's pretty small, so you'll need something like a sewing needle or a really skinny paper clip or safety pin. Don't press really hard. If the object won't fit, don't force it. Find something else that'll fit in the hole. Press for 2-3 seconds. You may have to reboot the tablet. Typing can be an issue. It takes a bit getting used to. Typing is easiest in LANDSCAPE view (longways/horizontal). If the tablet seems slow, use the included ADVANCED TASK MANAGER. Memory is limited, so be judicious with the apps you simultaneously have open. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here are the apps that I got preinstalled on the device: -ADVANCED TASK MANAGER -ALARM CLOCK -APPOKE MARKET -AUDIO PLAYER -BOX.NET -BROWSER -CALCULATOR -DAILY PAPER -EASY INSTALLER -EASY UNINSTALLER -EMAIL -EXPLORER -KOBO -OFFICESUITE -PHOTOS -SETTINGS -SOUND RECORDER -VIDEO Sorry, no Google Play Android app market.

I just received this eReader/Tablet today. So far I think it is a P.O.S.! It powered on but beyond that I couldn't get anything on it to work right. The touch screen was not very sensitive and I had to keep tapping too hard to get it to respond. It would not connect to the wi-fi signal in my house but would connect to the neighbors signal next door. However, it would not load any websites on the browser, it just kept saying 'page unavailable' and 'unable to display page'. Also I clicked on the Kobo eBook app preloaded, and it would not connect either. It just kept saying can't connect to Kobo server... try again later. So overall in my experience it was just worthless.

I bought this with only the intention to have something to read books on. I think it is important to note that this is not a kindle. I received this yesterday. After reading the reviews it seemed like a hit or miss. I decided to try. It is a bit of a challenge. It does not have a serial number. Just as the reviews mentions the touch screen does not responds quite well, however, I learn that after doing calibration a few times it’s now intone with my touch. As far as getting books on this thing, my favorite site to get books Amazon.com. Amazon is all about Kindle and finding a way to get it on this thing is just about impossible. Other eBook sites just don’t compare to Amazon selection. Keep in mind that the eReader main purpose is eBook reading; it’s not a computer and not meant to be used like one. It requires patience. Downloading books with the appropriate apps or comparable ones and site is easy; however, they do not have any books that I like to read. I haven't tried transferring a book from my computer to this device as of yet. All in all, it’s good for reading :).

Reader was Damaged on arriveal due to Shipping

Since my reader was damaged due to it being shipped in an envelope, I can't really rate it fairly. I had read the reviews and specs and for the money this reader seemed alright. It's sleek and I had no problems with the touch screen. The power button is placed in a poor position and seemed somewhat sensitive, but that could have just been the damage. I'd consider the position of the power button a design flaw. I am returning the reader because when I plugged it in to charge it initially for the recommended 4 hour charge it immediately powered on. I tried to power it down, and it came right back on. I let it sit for a couple of hours, tried to power it down again it seemed to successfully turn off. I waited the allotted 4 hour time and went to turn it on and it wouldn't turn on. I am returning it on my next day off. This isn't available at my local Wal-Mart store so I'm now out of luck at it was to be a Christmas gift. I'm glad I didn't wait til Christmas to test it.

We bought this for reading E books. We have had it for a couple of weeks and there is still a lot to learn. So far, we have gone online with it, and are reading a book in browser. One note, the instruction book is written in Micro size type, cannot read it without a magnifying glass. Good news is, its loaded on the tablet and you can make it as big as you need. For the money, it is exactly what we expected and we are learning to use it . We love the way you can read it whichever way you like, and it adjusts.

This is a great product for a full-time student. I love to read but with all the books I already carry around school, it's hard to carry any more. But this product gives me the pleasure of being able to easily access any book I feel like reading during my spare time. I get to use it during the breaks between classes, and I can even use it to look things up in class if I get lost during a lecture. It's also easy to use and works great. I would recommend it to anyone.

I waited to review this item until I had it for 30 days. I read so many bad reviews I really didn't know what to expect. Well, after having this for 2 weeks I purchased a second unit. Have had nothing but good luck with it!! Very easy to setup to my wireless. Very easy to download books from my library. Haven't purchased any books yet, but I expect no problems. I did call customer service on a very small issue shortly after receiving it and I was able to reach a human being after the second ring!! The issue was my fault, not the e-reader's! I would highly recommend this eReader/Tablet!! Glad I didn't spend the big bucks on a "namebrand"!

I thought I could just go to a websit on the ereader and download music apps and ebboks. But not so. Have to connect reader to my pc, download files to pc and then transfer them to ereader. Seems clumsy way to do it. Also when reading and trying to turn pages using touch screen not responsive enough. Have to keep touching 3-5 times before page turns. This is my first ereader and I am not happy with it. I would return it but I don't have the packaging anymore.

I bought this for something easy to use while on a road trip. I wanted to read while my husband drove. Thank God i found out before leaving how horrible it was. I charged it and it was awesome... Then, I charged it a second time and the E-reader crashed for good. There was no saving it. I returned it on Day 2, bought a new one in hopes this was a one time occurance... Wrong! Twice and Im done!
