E FUN Enters the Android Tablet Market with a 3 New Models

We’re hoping E FUN lives up to its quirky name with its introduction of three new Android tablets at CES 2011. Two of the devices are 7-inches; one with an integrated pen input and the other a capacitive touchscreen. The third model is a 10-inch capacitive touchscreen. The price for these three beauties ranges between $269 and $349.

The 7-inch Next5 sports a TFT touchscreen and integrated APEN digital pen that runs Android 2.1. The device is intended as a note taker, similar to the ASUS Eee Note. Except this pen can be used to take notes, write e-mails, and draw using regular paper and normal ink, and your scribblings are then transferred wirelessly to the device to be saved and exported. The $279 Next5 also includes Wi-Fi support, 2GB of memory, built-in mic and speakers, an SD/SDHC card slot, an MP3 player, and a photo viewer. You also get Borders eBook store and 25 eBooks preloaded. E FUN says the device, which comes with its own 5 x 8-inch notepad, will go on sale in April.

The 10.1-inch (1024 x 768-pixel) Next4 runs Android 2.2 and the 7-inch Next6 runs Android 2.1. Both come with a proprietary user interface on top that claims it will get users up and running faster. Both devices feature capacitive touchscreens, Wi-Fi capability, speakers, and 2GB of on-board memory with an SD Card Slot for more storage space. With the Next4 ($349) and Next6 ($269) sporting built-in access to Borders eBook Store and with 25 eBooks preloaded, it’s clear these devices are meant as more robust eReaders. There’s also an MP3 player and video viewer preloaded. Neither model will be available until Q2 of this year, but we’re guessing they’ll be for sale at WalMart, where the company says its products are sold.
