The Next1 and Next2 eBook Readers From Nextbook - A close call

7The Next1 and Next2 eBook Readers From Nextbook | The eBook Reader Blog:
"There’s a new ebook reader company called Nextbook that has two new ereaders called the Next1 and Next2.

Both the Next1 and Next2 have 7″ color TFT screens with pixel resolutions of 800 x 480. They come with 2GB of internal memory and have micro SD card slots for memory expansion."

I was briefly tempted to pick up the Next1 on sale at XSCargo for $99. Until I did a bit or research.

Most telling were the complaints in the forums at the Home Shopping Network.

Of course, my first clue should have been that it was on sale at XSCargo - the elephant graveyard of electronics.
