E FUN’s new Android tablets offer access to Verizon’s 4G LTE network


E FUN, the hardware manufacturer that puts together low-end Android and Windows devices, has two new Android tablets available with an optional 4G LTE connection. The Nextbook Ares 8L and Nextbook Ares 10L are pretty much the same device. Between the two, the only difference you will notice or even find is that display size. Other than that, everything is the same. The display resolution is 1280×800, the processor is an Intel Atom paired with 1GB of RAM, and there is 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot. The most interesting thing about these tablets, however, is the capability of utilizing Verizon’s network.

Both tablets can already be purchased from Walmart or Verizon. The price for the Nextbook Ares 8L is listed at $144 but Verizon will allow you to pay $4.88 by signing a two-year contract. The Nextbook Ares 10L raises that to $193 off-contract or $9.88 with an agreement from Verizon.

Hit the break for the full press release.
