Trouble with Nextbook tablet.

by bc2005 / September 21, 2011 3:37 AM PDT

I purchased a Nextbook 6 Android 2.1 tablet. Out of the box I charged it proper amount and connected to my WiFi and thats where the fun stopped.
It will work for a few minutes, browsing the web, reading a book etc, then the screen will get dim and it will disconnect and reboot. I tried powering down and reset. Same results.
Anyone have suggestions.

I wouldn't buy any tablet with less then Android 3.0. I bought some cheap ones and you have trouble witrh the android market. Plus the ones with anything less then Android 3.0 tend to have the same issues your having as they are built as good.
