We are the epitome of a technology crazed family. I can contribute this to no one other than myself. I have always been a lover to technology and fun gadgets and have passed that love on to my children and converted my husband. I never let my husband forget the one day he said to me, “A phone is just for making calls”. You can imagine my face when he said that!
I mean really when was the last time you used your phone just to make calls. While you can do many things with your phone there are some things that are just to hard to do on a small screen. However you don’t always want to be tied to your desk either. Have you thought about a 2-in one tablet like the Nextbook 10 Windows Tablet? I received one to review and was quite impressed.
Nextbook 10 Windows Tablet Review
I have reviewed a few different Nextbook’s here at Shibley Smiles including the Nextbook 8 and Nextbook 9. Each time Nextbook comes out with a new version it gets better. One of the things I love about the Nextbook 10 Windows Tablet is that it is light weight and priced right. Not everyone wants to break the bank buying the top of the line mega expensive tablet for their family. At only $219.99 at Target this is a great deal.
Since it is a 2 in 1 tablet this means you can operate it like a laptop using the keyboard or easily remove the screen with the push of button to convert it to a tablet.
The great thing about this tablet is unlike other tablets the keyboard is included. Many 2 in 1 tablets require and additional cost to purchase the keyboard. The keyboard seems to be working great and is made to feel like a keyboard so you don’t have to press any harder than you would on a normal keyboard to get it to work.
The Nextbook 10 Windows Tablet comes with the full version of the Windows 8.1 operating system. Owning several different windows items from the Surface Pro 3 to Windows phones using the grid like Windows screen was a breeze. In addition to the keyboard the Nextbook 10 is also comes with a free year of Office 365 Personal with 1TB OneDrive online cloud storage. (We are always in the cloud these days).
It definitely worked faster than I had anticipated but no tablet at this price is going to be as fast as a computer or laptop that you have invested more money in. This is not a gaming, video editing, or hard core tablet. If used for what it was intended such as surfing the net, playing less intensive games, budgeting, and other normal tasks it will work just fine. It is great for kids who just love to have something they can call their own! I could tell you all the technology specifics but really that is like saying blah blah blah (so for those tech geeks see below). It is also preloaded with VUDU Movies and TV app; NOOK for Windows 8 app.

There’s also a slot for a microSD card which will increase your onboard storage of 32GB which some of is used for the operating system.. You can easily increase the storage by 32GB or 64GB. The monitor is 10.1 inches which is a great size for a tablet.
