Take a Spring Break
The Nextbook Ares 8A Android tablet comes ready to let loose. With its built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, easy Internet access is virtually assured from practically anywhere. Connectivity won't be an issue, whether the unit is used in the backyard, local park, nearby beach, trip across country, or a stay at some exotic location far from home.

And for what uses might the Ares 8A be good for at any of these spots? 

Let's begin with the excellent selection of preloaded apps it comes with. The Barnes and Noble NOOK app offers more reading material than you can finish in a lifetime, let alone over a few Spring days. Want to sit back and while away the hours watching movies and TV shows? The Ares 8A's VUDU Movies and TV app gives you instant access to hours of them. Or if you would rather venture to an actual movie theater, check out what is showing on the Flixster app.

But those are just appetizers compared to the main course. Also preloaded is the Google Play Store. Think of it has your own personal supplier to literally millions of choices. From the latest video games – made even more exciting with the unit's 3-axis G-sensor that lets you move the way you need to without constraint – to all of the popular social media sites, music (over 35-million songs), books (over five-million titles), movies and TV shows, and news publications and magazines are at your fingertips.

And feel free to shoot and record to your heart's content. It has 16GB of internal memory and additional storage via a microUSB port and an up to 128GB-capacity microSD slot. So, there's plenty of room to store all of those captured memories.
