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.
