A couple of days I wrote about E Fun, who are unveiling their Nextbook Elite 10 this week at CES 2012. The Elite 10 will be among the first tablets to run Android 4.0, known as Ice Cream Sandwich. The tablet will be available this Spring at an MSRP of $249.99. At the time this was announced there were no pictures available, but that just changed. An email from a PR representative for E Fun just popped into my inbox with an attached first picture of the new E Fun Nextbook Elite 10. The picture is posted below. You can click to enlarge it. You can visit the manufacturer’s website at NextBookUSA.
Another manufacturer has thrown their hat into the Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 ring. E Fun, one of the better budget makers of tablets has announced that they will be unveiling their latest offering next week at CES 2012. The new hardware is called the Elite 10 and it’s a 9.7 inch tablet that will be among the first to run Google’s next-generation version of the Android operating system.
The Elite 10 will feature 1024 x 768 resolution, a Broadcom A9 dual-core 1.1 processor, Bluetooth, and HDMI. It also will have dual cameras – a 2.0 MP front-facing one, as well as a 5.0 MP rear camera, and also high definition video.
“E FUN is pleased to announce its latest Nextbook tablet with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich – the Elite 10, to be debuted at CES on January 10.”
As of now E Fun is not releasing any pictures of the new tablet, as they want to officially have it seen at CES, but we’re working with a company rep in hopes of being one of the first places you will be able to see those images. I recently was told that the company is, “Truly sorry that we are still waiting on the production image, it’s really new and will be showed at CES for the first time.” She has promised me that, “I will definitely get the image out to you as soon as it’s ready!”
Stay tuned for some shots of this new Android device that will be coming soon. The tablet itself will be available in the Spring at an MSRP of $249.99. Below is the current Android 2.3 model from E Fun (the Premium 9), which is probably an adequate hardware representation of what is coming. You can visit them by heading over to NextBookUSA.
