The folks from E FUN have announced a slew of new tablets running on the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that they'll be showing off at CES 2013 this year. Yesterday we reported on the budget friendly 7-inch flavor, and today they are back with an 8-inch model for those needing a little extra real estate. Read on for full details on this decent sounding slate.

E FUN is calling their new slates the Nextbook Google Play series, well because they now have full support of Google's Play Store of more than 700,000 apps, games, books and more. Today they've added the Nextbook GP8 8-inch 1.5 GHz dual-core powered slate to their growing lineup. Here's the full rundown on the specs:

The 8-inch GP rocks a 1280 x 800 HD resolution display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, bluetooth, WiFi, hdmi-out and is only 9.5mm thin. It also rocks micro-SD for added storage, and a full USB 2.0 port. You'll get all of this and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for just $169.99 come February.

Pretty decent sounding slate for only $169.99. Not to mention that 8-inch HD screen is an IPS display, so you'll have good viewing angles and exceptional color reproduction. E FUN will be offering the Nextbook GP8 with additional storage options at a higher price, but we'll learn more next week on the CES showroom floor so stay tuned to our CES 2013 portal.
