Nextbook Next2

The Next 2 is Nextbook's most inexpensive reader. It has a 7" resistive touchscreen with a 16:9 ratio and 800 x 480 pixel resolution.

The Next2 runs Android 1.5, an earlier version that isn't compatible with a lot of newer apps, so this device is more suited to e-reading than installing and experimenting with a bunch of different kinds of applications.
