Calif. – Having just expanded its Premium series of Nextbook tablets to include
an 8-inch model, E Fun plans to add a 9-inch model in November or December.
Pricing on the
Nextbook Premium 9 wasn’t available, but its specifications were. Like E Fun’s other
Premium series devices, the Premium 9 features Android 2.3 OS, but compared to
the $299-suggested 8-inch Premium 8, it steps up screen size to 9 inches and
steps up resolution to 1,280 by 800 pixels from 800 by 480.
Both the Premium
8 and 9 feature 1GHz processor, and compared to the $249-suggested Nextbook
Premium 7 with 7-inch touchscreen, both add 2-megapixel front-facing camera and
over-the-air upgrade capability.
The 7, 8 and 9 features capacitive
touchscreens, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, included 4GB memory and MicroSD/MMC slot able
to accept 32GB cards.
Other 8 and 9 features include a Mini USB port, 1080p video player, built-in speakers and
four-way gravity sensor.
The Premium tables access
thousands of free downloadable apps, but not through the Android Market.
With the Premium 9 launch, four of the company’s seven Nextbook tablets
will feature capacitive touchscreen; the others feature resistive touchscreens.
E Fun tablet prices start at a suggested $149 for a 7-inch model.
