Features And Specs For The Nextbook Ares 8 Tablet – This product is no longer manufactured but we have kept this information for anyone needing specifications.

The Ares 8 is the entry-level tablet from Nextbook. It’s one of the most affordable tablets on the market while still being able to perform any task necessary. The Ares 8 is an 8-inch device, which means that it can fit comfortably in a single hand for extended use. It combines the ultra-portable frame of a smartphone with the powerful processing capabilities of a laptop.

Enhanced Tablet Reading & OS

The Ares 8 is shipped with the Android operating system 5.1 Lollipop. Lollipop is a refined and efficient OS with a strong focus on multitasking. The smooth process control of Lollipop combined with the raw power of the Intel Atom 1.8Ghz Quad-Core CPU makes this a powerful work tool for editing documents or PowerPoints. You will be able to seamlessly transition from reading a PDF to visiting a website or to playing music.

You might think that an 8-inch screen is a step back from the large devices that dominate the market today. Controlling the screen size helps make the Ares 8 a highly affordable device as well as one that is lightweight and comfortable. The screen is large enough to edit documents with precision and watch movies without straining the eyes. Meanwhile, it can fit comfortably in the palm of your hands while you do these things. The 8-inch screen is the perfect compromise for savvy shoppers who want size and comfort.
