The NextBook Next2 isn’t just an eBook reader, it’s also a tablet. Powered by Android OS 1.5, this little guy has a 600 MHz processor, 7″ 800 x 480 resistive touch screen, 2GB internal memory and an SD card slot for expansion. The Next2 ships with 25 free books already installed, but using built-in WiFi, you can surf the Borders store directly on the device, to buy and download books. They also allude to the fact that you can install apps, but I’m unsure if this device has access to the full app market or a subset. The NextBook Next2 will be available on the HSN in November, with a MSRP of $199.99. Lack of a capacitive touch screen and the latest version of Android leave me a little cold… I’ll keep using my Droid X as my eBook reader for the time being.
