E Fun unveils 8 inch, $170 Android tablet with Google Play

The Nextbook 7GP isn’t the only new tablet from E Fun with a dual core processor, Android 4.1 software, and access to the Google Play Store. The company is also introducing an 8 inch model called the E Fun Nextbook 8GP which should be available in February for about $170.

Like the 7 inch model, the Nextbook 8GP has a 1.5 GHz dual core CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of built-in storage as well as a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of additional space.

It has front and rear cameras, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and HDMI output. E Fun says the tablet measures 0.37 inches thick and has an IPS display with wide viewing angles, but there’s no mention of the actual screen resolution.

The tablet runs Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and it’s a Google Certified device, which means it ships with Google apps including Gmail, Google Talk, Google Maps, and the GOogle Play Store for downloading apps, books, music, and movies.

    With the Archos 80 Carbon coming at $US199 with an 8″ 1024 x 768 screen, I’d be surprised if this was lower resolution. If it is, they shouldn’t even bother.

    The Novo 7 Legend also launched in December, which may be considered the first quality “$100 TABLET” actually worth buying – with features that include a quality screen display, MicroSD storage, Android 4.1 O/S, Google Play, a MicroUSB port, and a processor good enough to handle 3D games — Plus WiFi, Ethernet and 3G/4G Connection.

    TabletSprint also includes $25 in Bonus Apps with all tablets available through their site, and bundles in free 3G/4G wireless service with a free 3G/4G USB adapter and 500MB of free data every month with full internet access & VoIP voice calling–

    One Android tablet maker to watch out for is Ainol Electronics – which has recently been coming out with some impressive, well-priced models and actually won “runner up” status for “Best Tablet of the Year” at CES 2012… One of the first U.S. Resellers to carry the Ainol Novo Series is a site called TabletSprint — in December, the Novo 10 Hero was introduced and is available at TabletSprint for $219 – and is possibly the best Full Size, 10-inch tablet for under $300 — with a High Resolution 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB Memory, a strong Battery and Dual Core processor with Quad Core GPU, front and back cameras, MicroSD Memory Card slot with unlimited storage, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, Google Play with 400K+ Apps, MicroUSB port for connection to printers and other electronic devices, HDMI – to view personal videos and to download movies and watch in Full 1080p (HD) on to a large screen TV, WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, and an option for 3G/4G connection. It’s also a great gaming device with its high resolution screen and motion gaming sensor. TabletSprint also offers a 10″ Compact Case with built-in Keyboard ($28).

    I like how “access to the Google play Store” is now a big selling point on the cheapietabs.
