EFun Announces Its Nextbook 7GP Budget Tablet, Crams 7-Inch Display And Jelly Bean Into A $130 Package


There’s more than a few of us out there who can appreciate the various inexpensive tablets out there and can look forward to yet another newly launched tablet out for the masses. While EFun is a relative unknown to most consumers, it has recently announced its brand-new Nextbook 7GP which is a 7-inch tablet that comes with some fairly modest features: a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of expandable storage, built-in WiFi and an acceptable 1,024 x 600 display. While those features are nothing too noteworthy— the Nextbook 7GP will operate on Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) and come in at a stunning price of only $130, which may or may not put a little pressure on the folks at Google.

The tablet is expected to be at CES next week, so you’ll be able to get additional information and shots of the device then. In the meantime, why not hit past the break to check out the presser and tease yourself a little?
