Nextbook 8 Windows Tablet #MicrosoftBloggers

Nextbook 8 Windows Tablet
 Sample received. All opinions are my own.
tablet1

I tend to always have some sort of portable electronic item with me…. and tablets are a big deal in our house. The kids and I love to play on tablets but don’t really have much experience with tablets operating on the Windows 8.1 platform. I was intrigued to see how different using a tablet with Windows was compared to my laptop.

The Nextbook 8 features an 8-inch screen with WXGA (1280×800) resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio for vivid picture quality to play, read, watch, stream or work.

Portability is always an issue for me because I tend to carry “all the tech” with me everywhere I go. The Nextbook 8 weighs in at less a pound and measures 8.5 by 4.6 inches big. Big enough to easily read without overloading my bag in the process.

As I mentioned earlier, the Nextbook 8 comes pre-loaded with the Windows 8.1 operating system. There is plenty of room for all your apps with 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded to 64GB with the microSD card slot. No worries about lag… it comes with an Intel® ATOM quad-core processor that can power your applications with ease.

Connectivity isn’t an issue with both WiFi and Bluetooth support built-in, the Nextbook 8 can connect with everything you need at home and on-the-go.

The Nextbook 8 also features connectivity through its USB and microHDMI inputs. Video chat or capture your favorite moments with the 0.3MP front webcam and 2.0MP back camera and integrated microphone. With a 3-axis G-sensor, you can immerse yourself into various games without constraints or boundaries.

The 8” Nextbook Windows tablet is perfect for work and play and is an incredible value with a free one year subscription for Office 365 Personal that includes 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage and 60 Skype world minutes per month. The Office 365 subscription alone is an $84 value!

Features at a glance:
• 10.1” 1280 x 800 screen with capacitive multi-touch
• Windows 8.1 Operating System
• Quad-Core Intel Atom Processor (2M cache, up to 1.83 GHz); 1GB DDR3L system memory
• 16GB internal storage; expandable via microSD card up to 64GB
• Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity options
• Front webcam and 2 megapixel back camera with microphone
• Micro USB port, mini HDMI port, audio jack

I was honestly surprised at how well this compact yet sleek tablet performed under daily use. If you have used Windows 8 on your home computer/laptop, the functionality on the tablet will be second nature to you. The kids were able to download their favorite apps and navigate without much help. To be honest I really didn’t have a lot of high hopes for a $99 tablet and the Nextbook 8 totally surprised me. I have yet to get “hung up”, it runs smoothly and is ultra lightweight so that I can easily toss it into my bag without noticing a huge weight difference. I think this a great family tablet!
