West Covina, 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.
