E FUN Announces New Windows 10 Laptops, Tablets

E FUN announced today that they are entering the North American laptop market with two affordable Windows 10 devices. Additionally, E FUN is updating its lineup of Windows tablets as well.

“E FUN’s new Windows 10 Nextbook devices are further proof that you can do great things on any budget,” E FUN vice president Jordan Chrysafidis says. “These value-priced devices are great for education or entertainment, and with Windows 10 features, customers can have fun and get more done.”

If the name E FUN rings a bell, that’s because they released an intriguing Windows 8.1-based Nextbook mini-tablet about 18 months ago. With this announcement, the firm is extending its push with Windows 10 to include laptops and a new generation of tablets.

Both of the laptops are incredibly inexpensive, in keeping with the firm’s previous devices. An 11.6-inch Windows 10 Nextbook convertible-style laptop with touch-screen will cost just $270, while a 14-inch variant will cost $200. Both are due in Q2 2016.

The Nextbook 11.6-inch Convertible Touch Screen Laptop provides a 360-degree hinge so it can be used in laptop, tablet, tent or stand modes, an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) IPS touch screen display, and 64GB of storage with microSD expansion. It has a front-facing webcam, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, and a microHDMI port.

The Nextbook 14″ Laptop features a large 14-inch 1366 x 768 display (non-touch) with 32 GB of storage, microSD expansion, a front-facing webcam, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, a microHDMI port, 1 USB 2.0 port and 1 USB 3.0 port, and a full laptop keyboard with touch pad.

On the tablet front, E FUN will offer three choices: the new Flexx 9A, Flexx 10A and Flexx 11A, which offer 8.9-inch (1280 x 800), 10.1-inch (1280 x 800) and 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) touch screens, respectively. Each is powered by a quad-core Intel AtomTM x5-Z8300 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB of storage, microSD expandability, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n networking, micro USB and microHDMI ports, and front- and rear-facing cameras. Prices range from $150 to $250.

So, yes, these are low-end devices. But with firms like Microsoft, HP, Lenovo and Dell increasingly pushing for the upper bounds of the PC market, it’s nice to see lesser-known names stepping in on the low-end too.

The E FUN devices will be on display this week at a Pepcom event at CES, so expect Brad to go hands-on and get some great shots.
