Nextbook makes the Flexx, a 2-in-1 tablet laptop – a family friendly electronic device with a huge list of uses. From listening to music, watching videos, reading books, studying or doing research, playing games, doing work, or keeping up with social media. It even includes a free subscription to Microsoft Office Suite.
They sent me one to try out, and tell you about. This review unit was provided to me, but as always my opinion is 100% my own. Review unit is sponsored by E FUN/Nextbook.
The Flexx 11A rivals the Microsoft Surface and the Lenovo Yoga in terms of size and functionality. Yet at the special value price of $179 at Walmart, the Nextbook wins hands-down. Don’t worry, performance doesn’t suffer. Its touchscreen reacts quickly and smoothly, and it loads up web pages, social media and video chat in a snap. There are multiple ports to connect all your devices, such as printers, flash drives, speakers, joysticks and more. You can even play Xbox games on it!
The POGO keyboard detaches and reattaches easily and quickly so it can also be used as a laptop, and at under 3 pounds, it’s perfect for on-the-go. Never miss breaking news! Bring it along to class, the beach, on business trips, or wherever you’re headed. With Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you can connect to the internet easily – and you can even connect to your fitness device or enabled-car stereo.
This smart little gadget even recognizes voice commands. Set up is easy with Cortana (Microsoft’s equivalent to Siri) walking you through everything and making helpful suggestions. Then, she checks for updates and does it all for you. And once you’re set up, she’s available whenever you have a question. Or, you can use the touchscreen (or, of course, the keyboard).
