E FUN debuts $129 Nextbook Premium 7SE-GP with Google Play access

For all the appeal that comes with a $100-$150 Android tablet, experienced users are often quick to point out the omissions and holes. One particular detail that often comes up is the lack of Google Play and the growing library of apps. E FUN is no stranger to this as they have announced a number of devices over time, all of which are inexpensive options that don’t have Google Play. That is not the case with the new 7-inch model, the Nextbook Premium 7SE-GP.

E FUN today announced a new $129.99 tablet for December which features specs that are surprisingly decent for the money. Details include a 7-inch 800×480 display, a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM, HDMI-output, USB host, microSD expansion, and front-facing camera. Powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Nextbook Premium 7SE-GP connects via Wi-Fi but also allows for 3G connectivity  via dongle.

Look for the 7-inch tablet to arrive some time in December, hopefully before Christmas.

    I have gone to each of the retailers posted on the Nextbookusa.com website and CANNOT find a single store that carries this Nextbook Tablet 7se-gp, model #NEXT7P12-8G. Not even amazon carries this version with GooglePlay. Does it really exist? If so, please tell me where because it’s advertised in the Walmart paper as well this week, but they don’t have THIS VERSION as advertised either. Please help me find it and list retailers who really actually have them. Thanks.

      I got mine off of HSN. It had the google play, and all the features listed above. I am very happy with this tablet and for the cost of it??? GREAT BUY! Wish I would have ordered 2 to give one away. I have only seen one advertized on E Bay and they wanted $80.00 more than HSN so be patient and make sure you check it out so you don’t get the other one without Google Play. Good Luck

    My wife got me mine from HSN and it is great. I am an extremely experienced computer, laptop, Pocket PC, smartphone, etc. user. This is the most value for the money I have seen; especially after adding all my desired Android apps (it comes with dozens pre-loaded). It has worked perfectly (after learning how to properly navigate). I added 32GB of microSD memory from Best Buy for only $25.00.

    My kid broke the port. It is too fragile. All he did was plug it in a little crooked – an adult would know that it does not feel right but he forced it. The customer service is lame. I told them exactly what happened and they keep offering to sell me a new charger. Finally after much back and force they told me to send it back and they will determine if it is the charger or the unit that is broken. But they did not say they would fix it if the DC jack needs replaced. It was odd how elusive they were so i am debating fixing it myself. Tried using the usb for power, but no luck.

      You can charge the Nextbook 7 via USB as well actually. You just can’t charge it from a USB computer port. You must use a wall adapter style charge with a USB to microUSB cable. I stopes using the adapter that came with the tablet because it was loose fitting and switch to using the micro port for charging. It does charge slower but it works none the less and it’s a tight connection unlike the regular DC charging port.
