I love the fact that companies are coming out with inexpensive tablets so everyone can get one, and it’s nice to see some decent specs with them too. The latest is the Nextbook 8 from E Fun with a limited edition price of $79.99 and you can even pick a color, red, blue or silver. The tablet does have a 1.6ghz quad core CPU in it but the resolution is a bit low at only 1024×768, but it is priced under $100. The tablet has 1gb of DDR3 ram and 8gb of storage which you can add more via a microSD card. The tablet also has wi-fi, an HDMI output, dual webcams and a microphone and yes it does have access to Google Play, which I think is important for any Android tablet. More details below for you..
