You ready to have more fun? Of course you are and eFun is ready to give you what you want! Introducing the eFun Next3 Android 2.1 Tablet PC! This little dandy features WI-FI, an 8.4 inch screen and Borders e-Reading App bundled with it.
eFuns latest Tablet PC dubbed the Next3, features the Google Android 2.1 operating system. It has a large 8.4″ TFT color display which is a little bit bigger then the recent Samsung Galxy Tab. It also has built-in stereo speakers, 2GB flash memory with an SD card slot to increase storage capacity up to around 32 GB. There no 3G connection but it does have built in WI-FI in order to connect to the internet.
If you are looking to purchase this device and use it as an e-reading tool it does have the Borders eBook store that is preloaded on every Nextbook making it easy to purchase and download favorite titles. Borders is the same bookstore that Kobo users enjoy, so there is no shortage of ebooks to choose from. No word on whether this device will be able to get newspaper or magazine subscriptions on it yet.
The Next3 will allow you to surf the Internet, receive and answer e-mails, watch YouTube videos, listen to Internet music providers and get real-time weather reports. Turning pages and choosing applications is as easy as lifting a finger with the touch-screen feature. Additional functions include a calculator, clock, and alarm.
We would guess that this device does not have access to the Android Marketplace, if it did it would be hyped in the press release. There is also no GPS capabilities which further mean Google would not sanction a GMAIL or Android market place. If you want a little bit of fun in your life, the Nextbook Next3 ships this week, priced at $230, and includes a protective pouch with a magnetic flap. You can also purchase it on HSN for $199
