eFun is one of those tablet companies that came out of no where last year, and they’ve really made a name for themselves. Next week eFun will be showing off their first 10″ tablet running Android v4.o Ice Cream Sandwich.
Update: eFun was having trouble earlier today. Someone hacked their servers and messed with the website. Apparently the email I saw before was wrong, because I just received a new one.
The Nextbook Elite 10 Android looks to be targeted as an iPad competitor. It’s running on a 1.1GHz dual core CPU, and it’s built around a 9.7″ screen ( 1024×768). eFun hasn’t released much in the way of details, but I do know that it has a 2MP and a 5MP camera, Wifi, and will ship with the SlideMe app store. Product shots also show that it ships with the Kobo app.
Retail will be somewhere between $230 and $250 and it’s due out later this spring.
I’ve been following eFun since the Next2, their first Android tablet/ereader. That was a marginal tablet due to the fact that it ran Android v1.5, but later devices were much better.
It’s been interesting to watch eFun’s tablets improve as time went by. For example, eFun also showed off a couple larger tablets last year, but those were much more basic units without cameras or a dual core CPU. It’s amazing the difference a year makes.
