eFun's not one to miss out on CES festivities, and this year, the company is showing off new Windows 8.1 and Android "Nextbook" models. The Windows 8.1 lineup consists of three Quad Core Intel Atom-powered devices with screens measuring 10.1 inches (1,280 x 800 pixels, $229), 11.6 inches (1,366 x 768 pixels, $249) and 12.5 inches (1,366 x 768 pixels, $279). They're all laptop-tablet hybrids, with detachable keyboards sporting a USB connection, 32GB to 64GB internal storage (expandable with microSD) and 2GB of RAM. The 10.1-inch option also comes with something extra, though: a one-year Microsoft Office 365 Personal subscription with 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage and 60 Skype world minutes per month.

Meanwhile, the Android lineup starts with two tablets: an 8-inch one priced at $129 and another 8-inch option with a Snapdragon processor and LTE connection for $199. Both devices have 1280x800 screens, 16GB of storage (also expandable) and 1GB of RAM. The next step up is a hybrid LTE model with a 10.1-inch screen (1280x800), detachable keyboard, Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 16GB storage, 2MP front and rear cameras, and 1GB of RAM. The biggest of the bunch, however, is an 11.6-inch (1366x768) hybrid with 64GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and front and rear cameras. All these are scheduled to hit the market on May 2015, with both 10.1-inch devices priced at $229, both 11.6-inch ones at $249 and the 12.5-inch Windows version at $279.
