Cube is a Chinese device maker who has a knack for making interesting slates and it was also among the first to introduce so called Retina Display tablets. We say “so called”, because nowadays any tablet past 1080p is dubbed Retina. And now we get a new model from Cube, the U30GT2.


We’re dealing with a 10 inch tablet with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and a Rockchip RK3188 quad core processor, plus a price tag of around $300. The Cube U30GT2 relies on a 1.8 GHz ARM quad core Cortex A9 chipset and it also comes with Mali 400 graphics. Expect the following months to bring us many cheap quad core slates and perhaps even some 8 core ones.

This affordable slate also brings 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, a 7600 mAh battery, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus at the rear and a front facing webcam. There’s also HDMI, microSB, microUSB and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the OS. To that we add WiFi and Bluetooth. Appealing?
