While the tablets won’t be available for a few months, E Fun brought some early samples to the Consumer Electronics Show this week.
Windows models will be available with 10. 11.6 inch, and 12.5 inch displays, while the Android versions will come with 8, 10, or 11.6 inch displays.
Each will come with a keyboard dock that lets you use the tablets as notebooks. E Fun is showing off early prototypes of the keyboards for now. The final versions will look a little different.
The Windows tablets feature Intel Atom Z3735F Bay Trail processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, mini HDMI ports, and 2MP front and rear cameras, 32GB to 64GB of storage, and the 10 inch model comes with a 1-year subscription to Microsoft Office 365.
During the few minutes I spent with the Windows tablets they seemed like pretty capable little computers, especially given their low prices: the 10 inch model will sell for $229, while the 11.6 inch and 12.5 inch versions will cost $249 and $279, respectively.
I did notice that the computers felt a little top-heavy when used as laptops. Since the tablets weigh more than the keyboards, it wouldn’t be hard to accidentally tip them over. But again, the keyboards E Fun is currently showing are prototypes, so there’s a chance things could get better by the time the tablets launch in May.
E Fun’s new Android tablets have similar designs, but a wider range of hardware. The 8 inch model has a MediaTek processor, while the 10 inch version has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chip and the 11.6 inch Nextbook Ares 11 tablet has an Intel Atom Bay Trail processor.
