WEST COVINA, Calif., June 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With Father's Day quickly approaching, you may be struggling on what gift to get Dad that is both practical and fun while remaining affordable. Larger than a smartphone, yet smaller than a computer, a 2-in-1 tablet makes the perfect gift for Dad by providing a seamless balance between work and entertainment.
Two such tablets are the Nextbook Flexx 11 and Flexx 10 from E FUN. At either 11.6" or 10.1", these Windows 2-in-1's are the perfect size for Dad to bring to work or on vacation, so he can watch movies, listen to music, play games, surf the web and get things done wherever he is. Here are five tips for how Dad can get the most out of his new 2-in-1 Windows tablet.
Use the Keyboard
The great thing about a 2-in-1 is that it mixes the best of both worlds; it has the utility of a laptop and the ease-of-use and flexibility of a tablet. The full-sized keyboard on the Nextbook Flexx tablets comes with two USB ports and also detaches completely, allowing for quick versatility. While onboard keyboards may work well for surfing the web, having a full-sized keyboard allows Dad to work on more intensive projects or long emails.
Take Advantage of Apps
One of the main benefits of having a Nextbook Flexx tablet is that it gives Dad access to countless apps and games from the Windows Store. Can't get enough TV shows? Download a video streaming app such as Netflix or Hulu. If games are his passion, connect an Xbox controller with a microUSB adapter and play Call of Duty, Halo, or Asphalt 8 without being tied to a console. More into books? Use the Barnes and Noble NOOK app for free and easy access to more than 3 million books, magazines, and newspapers. Whatever his passion, the Nextbook Flexx tablets are perfect for Dad to sit back and enjoy it with.
Mirror the Device to His TV
The most powerful feature for turning Dad's tablet into an entertainment hub is its mini HDMI output, which will essentially allow him to mirror the tablet's screen onto any television. This means that Dad can watch videos, play games, and access all of his favorite mobile apps on that big flat screen TV in the living room all by connecting a single cord.
Reserve Free Windows 10 Upgrade
Be one of the first! Dad can reserve his free upgrade to Windows 10 now, and it will download automatically when available starting July 29.*
Activate His Office 365 Personal Account
The Nextbook Flexx 10 comes fully loaded with a one-year subscription of Microsoft Office 365 Personal, with all of the programs Dad needs to stay on top of things (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook). Make sure Dad activates his one-year subscription within six months of Windows activation date to gain access to these important tools.
Also available on the Nextbook Flexx tablets is OneDrive. OneDrive is a file hosting service that allows users to upload and sync files to cloud storage and then access them from their local device or web browser. Backing up important family files is a foolproof way for Dad to avoid being thrown in the doghouse. Nextbook Flexx 10 users receive 1TB of OneDrive online storage free for one year.
