Ematic Teams Up With Liquipel to Protect Its Two Most Popular Android Tablets

Ematic's Genesis Prime and FunTab Pro Are Now Watersafe™ With Liquipel, a Scientific Coating Technology That Bonds to the Tablets at a Molecular Level

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2013) - Ematic partners with Liquipel, the industry leader in Watersafe™ coating technologies, to keep its 7-inch Android tablets, the FunTab Pro and Genesis Prime, safe from accidental spills and other wet encounters. This invisible, water-resistant shield coats the entire tablet, inside and out, to repel moisture anytime, anywhere. 

"With Liquipel, we can offer our consumers an enhanced mobile experience and complete peace of mind when using the Genesis Prime or FunTab Pro in even the wettest environments," says Roy Rayn, president of Ematic. "Liquipel's commitment to excellence and its breakthrough technology made this partnership an easy decision for us."

The Liquipel treatment coats every nook and cranny of the tablets, including the power buttons, USB ports and audio jacks. Before hitting store shelves, all FunTab Pros and Genesis Primes will be placed in Liquipel's Liquipod™ machines where the proprietary mixture will be applied. 

Since the protection is at a molecular level, electricity is still able to be conducted but liquids remain as droplets and simply roll away.

"At Liquipel, we know how accident-prone adults can be who are actually trying to take care of their devices. Kids, on the other hand, are a different story and that's why Liquipel is great fit," says Sam Winkler, Executive Director of Liquipel. "Now that parents can get pretreated FunTab Pro and Genesis Prime tablets, they can rest easy knowing that these fun learning devices can withstand just about anything their kids can dish out."

The FunTab Pro is a 7-inch Android 4.0 tablet designed for children and approved by parents. Everyone knows that little hands can make big messes but Liquipel's treatment will protect devices against unfortunate milk spills, bathtub drops and more. The FunTab Pro comes preloaded with fun features like Video Mail and Art Studio, and users can access thousands of today's popular kids' apps. Parents can even check in on their child's tablet usage with the Parent Dashboard by Zoodles.

Ematic's Google-certified Genesis Prime is a 7-inch tablet with an Android 4.1 operating system, perfect for on-the-go users. With Google Play, users can browse this online market for content like books, movies, TV shows, music and more. The Genesis Prime also includes other Google services, such as Chrome, Maps, YouTube and Google Talk.

The FunTab Pro ($129.99) and Genesis Prime ($89.99) with Liquipel are available at walmart.com.
