New tablets? Naturally. These things are flowing like wine at an afterparty these days, and now even a company by the name of eFun is jumping in on the... fun. The company has just announced their new $300 Nextbook Premium 8 Android-based tablet, which -- perhaps not surprisingly -- looks a lot like most every other Android tablet coming out these days. It's black, sleek, and has a rather large bezel. Other specs include Android 2.3, an 8" TFT display (capacitive multi-touch), built-in Wi-Fi, an e-reader, Kobo book store, Slide application manager, OfficeSuit Viewer and built-in ASTRO File Manager....

Here's an oddball. While most Android tablets hitting the market these days are doing so with Honeycomb onboard, eFun is trying something...different.

This model also has a 7" LCD, along with built-in Wi-Fi, an e-reader application, SlideME application manager and an admittedly large bezel. Users will get 25 eBooks pre-loaded, and while there's no access... Read more...
My, how the times have changed. Just a few years ago, the vast majority of tablets shipped with resistive touch panels and a stylus to control input. These days, it's all about capacitive and multi-touch. If you can't do it with your fingers, it's not worth doing...or something like that. But E FUN (hardly a household name) is putting the joy back into stylus-based tablets, starting with the Next5. This is a newly launched 7" tablet with Android 2.1, an integrated APEN digital stylus, built-in Wi-Fi and plenty more. The digital pen really steals the show. It connects wirelessly to the tablet in... Read more...
