$130 E Fun Nextbook 7GP shows cheap tablets are getting better

Budget tablet maker E Fun is set to show off its next Android tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show next week. The E Fun Nextbook 7GP is a 7 inch tablet with a dual core processor, HDMI output, and Google Android 4.1. It’s expected to hit the streets in February for $130.

It’s not exactly in the same class of device as the Google Nexus 7, but it’s hard to beat the price… and it’s good to see that even bottom-tier tablets are starting to look not awful.

The Nextbook 7GP features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive multitouch display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storag,e and a 1.5 GHz dual core CPU.

It has front and rear cameras, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and a microSD card slot for extra storage space.

The tablet is a Google certified device, and E Fun calls it the first tablet in its new “Google Play Series,” which is another way of saying that it will include full access to the Google Play Store, Gmail app, Google Maps, and other Google services.

    Word.
    Bottom-tier tablets can be extremely awful. This latest generation seem much less so, which is to say that they look usable at least.
    I guess your mileage may vary if you are trying to use one as a daily driver.

    I got one of these on sale for $69. Not a bad tablet for this price. It has twice as much memory and twice as much storage as other cheap tablets in this price range. The screen is tiny compared to an iPad mini. Wish I got the 8 inch version instead.
