This week E FUN announced the availability of a new Android tablet, the Nextbook Ares 8A. This is a tablet which was first announced during CES 2017 and is simply a newer model of the already-existing Nextbook Ares 8 tablet. Although E FUN does note that the new model has been made to be “bigger, smarter, and better than ever.” Irrespective of what it offers though, the Nextbook Ares 8A is first and foremost designed to be super affordable and is now available to buy for only $68.
In terms of what you can expect for a little under $70, as the name suggests, the Nextbook Ares 8A tablet comes equipped with an 8-inch display, which employs the help of a 1280 x 800 resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Inside, you can expect to find 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, an Intel Atom GEN8 quad-core processor (clocking at 1.92 GHz), and a level of battery life that is said to equate to eight hours of usage. In terms of cameras, you will find a 2-megapixel camera on the back and a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front. Additional features worth noting include expandable storage via microSD (up to 128GB), Bluetooth 4.0, a microUSB port, a micro HDMI port, and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) pre-installed. It is also worth mentioning that E FUN has confirmed that the Nextbook Ares 8A comes with a number of pre-installed apps, including the Barnes and Noble NOOK app, the VUDU Movies and TV app, and the Flixster app.
All in all, this is a tablet designed to be that affordable and compact, while still offering a decent level of performance and a display geared towards media and gaming content. In addition to its $68 price, the Nextbook Ares 8A is available in a choice of three colors, black, blue, and red. While in terms of availability, E FUN has confirmed that the only place where you can pick up the $68 Nextbook Ares 8A tablet is Walmart. Furthermore, not all Walmart stores are carrying the device. Although, E FUN has confirmed that the tablet will be available in as many as 3,900 Walmart locations across the US.
