Nextbook Premium8, a new low cost Android tablet has recently been unveiled by E-FUN, a US based e-Reader and Tablet maker. The next book is priced at $299 which makes it a mid-range tablet.
This 8inch tab is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a single core Rockchip RK2918 SoC processor. The display provided is a TFT capacitive touchscreen which is capable of displaying up to a 800 x 480pixels of resolution.
For storage it has a built in 4GB memory and also a micro-SD card slot for extending the memory up to 32GB. The model also has a front facing 2.0MP camera. It also features 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 4 ways G-sensor, mini USB port, the Kobo eBook Store application and some other pre-installed application.
Well, though this model is priced only at $299, but the features of the model do not feel to be as the other models of this range. The HTC Flyer and the RIM Playbook are pretty more attractive from the features point of view. With comparisons over the features it really brings in a question in mind, how this tablet will do in the market? Let’s not try to be smart it will be better to wait to see how the market feels about this tablet.
