The Nextbook 8 tablet serves as a portable Windows 8.1 computer for productivity and entertainment. It has access to the Windows Store that lets it download apps with different functions. In addition, it features connectivity options, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, that let it connect to other devices and peripherals.
Every Nextbook 8 tablet comes with a free, one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal, an online office suite that allows the user to create documents, presentations, spreadsheets and emails. The subscription also grants the user 1 TB of OneDrive storage for storing and sharing files online. The tablet has cameras that let the user take pictures, record videos and chat with friends through Skype. It comes with the Nook Reading App pre-installed for reading e-books, magazines and newspapers.
With a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735G processor and 3-axis accelerometer running under the hood, the Nextbook 8 is capable enough for casual video games. Its 8-inch display has a 16:10 aspect ratio and 1280-by-800 screen resolution for high-definition video playback. Given that the operating system and pre-installed software occupy most of the 16 GB internal storage, the tablet has a microSD card slot that can expand the offline storage up to 64 GB. The tablet weighs less than a pound and measures 8.5 by 4.6 inches, which means it's lightweight and compact enough for travel.
