E-Fun Nextbook Flexx 2-in-1 Windows 8 Convertibles Launch for $178 And Up

flex-10 Widely known for their incredibly cheap tablets, budget tablet maker E-Fun has launched a couple new dual-purpose Windows 8 tablets with Intel Atom Bay Trail, detachable keyboard docks, and the expected low prices.

The Nextbook Flexx 11 has an 11.6" screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768, while the Nextbook Flexx 10 has a 10.1" screen (1280 x 800). The smaller model has 32GB storage, while the larger model has 64GB. According to the prodcut listing, the 10"model also comes with a free 1-year subscription to Office 365 Personal.

Both tablets run Windows 8 on a 1.83GHz Intel Atom Z3735 CPU with 2GB RAM, 3 USB ports, a microSD card slot, an HDMI port, a pair of 2MP cameras, as well as Bluetooth and Wifi.

And of course both tablets have said keyboard dock.

The E-Fun Nextbook Flexx 11 is available from Walmart for $227, while the Nextbook Flexx 10 sells for $178.

Those are cheap tablets, even for Windows 8. They're in the same range as Chromebooks, which the Flexx tablets were obviously designed to compete with, but unlike (most) Chromebooks these tablets have touchscreens. They're also eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 when it ships later this summer.

Like an iPad, the fairly large screens on these tablets won't suit everyone as reading devices, but on the plus side the screens are large enough for the full versions of websites or any reading app available for Windows 8.

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."
