Available in Asia and some parts of Europe, the ZenPad 3 8.0 is an Android-powered tablet with pretty good features for video watching, including front dual speakers and a 7.9-inch, 2,048 x 1,536 pixel display. There's no word on US availability for now.

The front-facing speakers are located at the edge, but your hands aren't likely to block them.

The plastic rear isn't the most luxurious, but the textured back makes for a good grip.
