Next3 Android tablet now available from HSN.com

Do you recall that tablet with an odd screen size that I showed you last month? It's now available from the Home Shopping Network for $199.The Next3 is based on a 8.4" LCD screen (800x600). According to the spec sheet it has 2GB Flash, a SD card slot, Wifi, accelerometer, headphone jack, and speakers. Like the Next2 I reviewed last week, the Next3 is tied to the Borders ebookstore.

But unlike the Next2, the Next3 runs Android v2.1. This is very good news; it means that you shouldn't have trouble installing apps.

I'd want to get my hands on it before making a recommendation, but at $200 i think this might be a good value. The Next2 was a decent tablet, and I expect the Next3 to be a good one, too.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Got my nextbook, it’s really nice looking. I am charging it just as requested. Others have said they have had difficulties with turinging the product on. Well, so far so good for me! As soon as I plugged my unit into the wall, my display lite up. That’s a good indication that I’ll be surfing the net soon. Prior to this purchase I bought a Coby Kyros tablet, it was nice but it kept dropping the Wifi connection. I just hope that the Next3 will live up to all that it claims. —I’m just looking for a cool toy, not anything Earth shattering:)

  2. I have had mine for over a week now and have not had any problems with it. I am still trialing it as I want to make sure we will actually get some good use out of it. It’s taken some getting used to and the touch screen seems to be a little difficult at times but overall, I think we like it.
