"We are extremely excited to build on the great success we had launching our first tablets with Windows in the fourth quarter of last year," stated Jason Liszewski, managing director and VP of sales for E FUN. "Our first 2-in-1 tablet with Windows and powered by Intel was one of the best selling devices by volume throughout the holiday season."
"The new E FUN Nextbook 2-in-1 products announced at CES are the sequel to their 'holiday hit' Windows 8" tablet and 2-in-1 devices," said Jordan Chrysafidis, VP of U.S. OEM Division, Microsoft. "With these latest offerings, E FUN continues to bring innovative productivity devices to market, at impressive prices."
"IDC expects the 2-in-1 category to enjoy solid growth in 2015, and part of that growth will be driven by product offerings at price points that simply didn't exist a year ago," said Jean Philippe Bouchard, research director, tablets at IDC. "Consumers are interested in the 2-in-1 form factor, but early products were prohibitively expensive. E FUN is throwing open the category to more people, and that's always a good thing."

The E FUN Nextbook 2-in-1 tablets with Windows will be available in May 2015 with MSRPs of $229 (10.1"), $249 (11.6"), and $279 (12.5").
