NextBook Premuim 8 SE Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich a Quick Review.

This NextBook Premium 8SE tablet, runs Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich and is under $200.00.
(Around $167.00 on Amazon)
It's decent for the price and I thought I would give it quick review.
I feel like it's worth the money.
Here's some alternative Android App Stores.

Opera Mini browser also offers apps.

Dolphin HD browser also offers apps through the browser. also offers apps through the Amazon Marketplace-

Author Brandon Coons ( ago)
do you know of any way to attatch a keyboard and mouse to one of these?

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
I would plug it in, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to make sure
it's not powering on. If it's not working, since you just bought it, I'd
take it back and get another one. :) I always try to use the stores return
policy first.

Author jean-jean almazar ( ago)
we bought one yesterday and it was working well,and all of a sudden the

How do you down load the Amazon app store to my next book 8

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
I added the Amazon APP store, and downloaded Pandora from there. :)


Author sothus ( ago)
I will let you know that after the first boot after it upgrades to the new
patch it can take up to a minute to boot so don't be affraid that you
bricked the Tablet. After that initial boot, the Tablet boots alot faster
then when first out of the box state.

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
I'm going to be doing this very soon. Very Excited thanks!

Author sothus ( ago)
You're welcome, I was actually displeased with the nextbook 8 se for the
fact of no google software. But since that patch over on xda I love this

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
Really good information! Thanks!

Author sothus ( ago)
If you want to put Google Apps/Play store. Go to google and search Next8P12
Biglots and go to that XDA forum, then skip to page 5. . And look for the
post by patriciogac and download that patch and follow his instructions.
After doing that the Tab will be rooted. Then go to page 6 and follow
Modem_Over's Instructions on how to get Google apps and the Play store
running on this NextBook. I have done it on two and it works flawlessly.

With This Tablet Can we put GameController USB Like Logitech or Saitek for
playing with the Emulator Nes & Snes Etc ??

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
Very Nice! You have a newer version of mine.

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
Newer model has hdmi, mine does not.

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
You have the model newer than mine. Mine doesn't charge through and no
hdmi. I wish my model did.. :)

Author Kiyonte Butler ( ago)
and it does have hdmi output (the long slot beside usb slot)

Author Kiyonte Butler ( ago)
it can charge through usb

Author MyPanda121 ( ago)
i got this one a few weeks ago, and mine did come with an hdmi port. cost
about $90.

Author Zik Jackson ( ago)
If you plug your USB into a laptop or PC then attach the tablet to the PC
via USB you should be able to copy files between the flash drive and the
tablet's file folders. I did it and it worked with MP3 music files. Not
sure if the 8SE can play .FLV movies with the built-in player, but there's
probably an app that can.

Author Zik Jackson ( ago)
It was fun and cool for about 3 weeks. I added new apps and got used to the
whole tablet experience and Android. Even went and bought the last one from
Big Lots for my 13-year old. She loves it. However, mine froze up one day
and wouldn't boot. Got stuck on the bootup splash screen and wouldn't
reset. I took it back for a refund today. In the meantime got a HTC One X
smartphone with Android 4.0 and 4G LTE. It does way more and now I don't
need the tablet. For 90 bucks, why not try it? Good luck

Author Wutznex Stef ( ago)
how do u like this tablet i was thinking of purchasing this for my 2 year
old son

Author Mustaf Abdullahi ( ago)
hey help! 8 SE or 7 have usb place so i have USB Flash with flv movies Is
it possible to connect and play my videos to watch?

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
Nope, just micro SD. :)

Author George Albair ( ago)
does it have simcard slot ??

Author Zik Jackson ( ago)
I got mine at Big Lots for $89.99 as well. Mine does appear to have an HDMI
out port, but I haven't tested it yet. Didn't realize it was not compatible
with Google Play, but as you said, for the price that's not a deal breaker.
Amazon App Store works fine.

Author nappyboyruiz ( ago)

i downloaded skype form 1mobile, and the front camera wont enable. is there
any solution to this?

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
I believe I used the Amazon store for Pandora and Angry birds. I'm pretty
sure it wasn't SlideMe or GetJar. I'd give Amazon a try.

Did you root your tablet to make the OTG work? And I have a Nextbook 7. Do
you think that would work with a keyboard case? I mean since yours did I
should be able too.

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
It does. It supports Adobe Flash 11.

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
I tried my friends keyboard case. Worked just fine. He got it off Not sure what model it was. He said he paid $4.00 for it.

Author unhypedup ( ago)
how do i delete videos off of it from the movie player . whenver i leave my
finger on the video , no list pops up ..

Author P Gilz ( ago)
Does the tablet support Keyboard cases or OTG?

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
It doesn't suck at today's price. This tablet has been out for about a
year. There are much better tablets out there now. Prices on the new
tablets are also much better too. Most newer tablets do run better
hardware. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is running at about $179.00 at Best Buy.
NextBook Tablet are now going for around $70-80 bucks at places like Big
Lots and other close out stores. At that price, it's not bad. If I was
going to buy a Tablet today, I'd buy Nexxus7 or the Tab2.

Author Liam C ( ago)
that tablet sucks for the price. get the Samsung galaxy tab 2 7.0 for the
same price and its getting updated to jelly bean, comes with the Google
play store, its dual core with a TIO map chip set (processor). don't buy
this tablet because you will definitely have future problems and dealing
with them will suck since its such a low end company

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
When I got the tablet, Netflix didn't work. Then the firmware update was
available. So, I installed the firmware available and that was it. I had
ICS 4.01. I think people with ICS 4.03 and higher are having problems.

Author chris torres ( ago)
how were you able to get netflix to work on this tablet?

Author Kelley beasley ( ago)
cant figure out how to download netflixs, facebook or youtube. im using the
get jar app that came on it but its really no help. i type in facebook and
the facebook app dont come up. its just DUMB. please help before i take

core tablets and all 3 have google play......

Hopefully you'll be able to find one that works better for you. Thanks for
commenting! Good Luck.

Author Shakir Muhammad ( ago)
I just got it at 7am on Black Friday. I didn't wait in line, I just
happened to be out and about. They had plenty in stock behind the service
desk @ where I got it from. I bought it for $90. My son is 8 and I was just
looking for something to be an ereader. You won't have ease of getting apps
but if you want to simply load your own videos on there and your own PDF's
and passively search the web without much speed. I plan on returning it
tonight after 1 hour of trying to figure it out.

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
Netflix and YouTube work fine on my tablet. Some people are having issues..

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
I wonder if the update you installed is for a different model? Mine doesn't
have hdmi. The updates are model specific. Wonder if that's the problem?

Author Berenice Magana ( ago)
i've been trying to delete a video but i have no clue how to do it.. Could
anyone help out?

Author sagebates ( ago)

Author richandmaime ( ago)

looks so diff also i am having problems with netflix any ideas (also I've
tried to do the firmware download update )

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
Yep, agreed. Nexxus 7 wasn't out at the time..It's good tablet. :)

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
Google Play.. nope..

Author chinolofus ( ago)
Nexus 7 is a much better deal for $50 more.

Author Chad Clifton ( ago)
Android market I meant

Author CheapGeek ( ago)
If you mean Google Play Store, nope. I've tried this tablet with other
Android App stores with no problem.

Author Chad Clifton ( ago)
So does it have the Android app store?
