Have a gander at the eGlide Steal -- Ematic's seven-inch slate rocking Ice Cream Sandwich and a rather budget-friendly $119.95 MSRP. So, what will your $119 and change get you? A 1GHz processor, for starters, plus a gig of RAM and 4GB of storage, augmented by 5GB of cloud storage and a microSD slot.
