If you are looking for budget-friendly tablets which pack quite a punch but not an extra ounce, eFun’s new offerings may be a good choice. The company has unveiled its Nextbook 7GP and 8GP tablets at the CES 2013 event.
The specifications of both tablets are nearly identical, except for the fact that 7GP is a 7-inch slate whereas 8GP adds an extra inch to that size for $40 more. Internally, both of these slates pack 1.5GHz dual-core CPU together with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage space.
7GP’s display supports 1024 x 600 pixels whereas that of the 8-inch tablet is 1024 x 768 pixels. Both tablets run Android 4.1, and eFun was keen to emphasize that they are Google-certified, a feature that is sure to entice very few.
A good thing about both these tablets is that they are fairly slim, featuring a profile that is a notch less than the likes of Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire. Besides, their price points are also significantly lower, the 7GP will be going for $130, whereas 8GP will be available for $170.
However, it would be important to note here that by coughing up a few more bucks, you can lay your hands on a 16GB Nexus 7 tablet for $199. Naturally, we can’t except a ‘Google experience’ to be any better than that offered by a Google-branded tablet. In that context, eFun’s offerings are barely any attraction.
Nonetheless, if you are keen on spending as little as possible on a slate, the 7GP may be just the right choice.
