E Fun’s Flexx 9 Is a Windows 10 Budget 2-In-1 for the Whole Family


EfunFlex9So many tablet choices, so little time. Some of us just need to find the perfect one. Some of us would love to have one with a keyboard. Others would love an extra for traveling, or one for their reckless teenager who tends to break or lose every device they give her. Whatever the case, an affordable option is always something nice when it comes to devices. Budget tablets are all over the place, but what if I told you there’s a Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet out there for just $139?

EfunFlex9-1The Nextbook Flexx 9 from E Fun takes advantage of how democratic Microsoft is when it comes to its Windows licenses. What I mean by this is, Microsoft offers up versions of Windows 10 for companies that don’t want to pay the extra fees to use it. E Fun is able to launch its Windows-running Nextbook Flexx 9 tablet for such a low price because of this exact reason; some are even touting it as the lowest-cost Windows 10 hybrid on the market. Jason Liszewski, managing director and VP of sales at E Fun says, “Small enough to take in your bag, but with the convenience of a full-sized detachable keyboard, the new Nextbook Flexx 9 provides a seamless balance between work and entertainment”.

EfunFlex9-2Specs include an 8.9-inch IPS display with 1280 x 800 pixels, a 1.83GHz Intel Atom Z3735G quad-core Bay Trail processor, a 32GB onboard SSD, and 1GB DDR3L RAM. You also get the option of an SD card (via microSD card slot), offering removable storage of up to 64GB. There is a USB 2.0 port on the detachable keyboard, as well as an HDMI port for upping the display factor whenever you want. Finally, there is Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n built-in on the Flexx 9 (ZDNet).

Along with other Nextbook brand laptops and tablets, the Flexx 9 will be available at Walmart in black, blue, or purple. The brand has easily become one of the most popular “detachables” the store offers, mostly thanks to “E Fun’s aggressive pricing and its partnership with Walmart”. Sure, that 1GB of RAM isn’t much to work with, nor is this a display that could compete with the likes of a Surface Pro hybrid, but you get what you pay for in that regard (in this case, the Flexx 9 costs a mere fraction of the thousand dollar 2-in-1 from Microsoft). ZDNet says to consider the Nextbook convertibles during Black Friday this holiday season, saying the Flexx 9 could easily be a doorbuster to watch out for.
