West Covina, Calif. – Value-priced mobile-device maker E FUN launched its second Windows tablet at an everyday $149 at Walmart.com and plans a one-day Black Friday special price of $99 through the site and through Walmart’s brick-and-mortar stores.
As part of the Black Friday special price, the tablet will come with bonus 16GB microSD memory card.
After Black Friday, sales of the 8-inch Nextbook 8 tablet will cease through Walmart’s brick-and-mortar stores, but the device will roll out to SamsClub.com in December.
The tablet features 1280 by 800 capacitive touchscreen, Windows 8.1, Intel quad-core 1.83GHz Atom Z3735G processor, 16GB internal storage, and 64GB microSD card slot.

Last month, E FUN announced mid-November availability of what it called the industry’s first Windows two-in-one tablet retailing for less than $200. The $179 10.1-inch Nextbook tablet with detachable keyboard was scheduled for mid-November availability at Walmart stores nationwide and Walmart.com, followed by December availability at SamsClub.com.
