E Fun introduces new Ares 11A hybrid tablet

nextbook-ares-11aE Fun might not have the kind of sales volume as Apple does with their fair share of iPads in terms of tablets moved across the counter, but this does not mean that they are not going to roll out any kind of hardware and just give up in the face of the competition. No sir, in fact, E Fun intends to make a splash at the upcoming CES by expanding their range of Nextbook Ares Android tablets by introducing a brand new 2-in-1 model. This particular model will be the 11.6″ Ares 11A, where it boasts of Android 5.1 Lollipop as the operating system of choice, and will be powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor that has 2GB of RAM in order to deliver a pretty smooth performance right from the get go. Expect the Nextbook Ares 11A to hit the market some time in the second quarter of next year as it is accompanied by a recommended sticker price tag of $219.99 a pop.

Basically, her iPad has now ended up as a rather large sized paperweight. Is there a way out of this conundrum?
