Next3 Android tablet now available from

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 (800×600). 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.

    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:)

    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.

  3. […] should probably recognize the other one. The Arnova 84 has already shown up in the US as the Nextbook Next3.  It has an 8.4″ resistive touchscreen and wifi. Assuming it has the same specs as the Next3 […]
