Chinese tablet maker Cube is getting ready to launch another device running Jide’s Remix OS software. The Cube i10 Remix is a low-cost tablet with a 10.6 inch display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and an estimated price of 699 yuan, or about $110.
That makes it one of the most affordable tablets to ship with Remix OS to date, although it still costs more than twice as much as the cheapest Remix device: Jide’s own Remix Mini desktop.
Remix OS is a custom version of Android designed to make Google’s mobile operating system feel more like a desktop OS. The operating system can run any Android app and it supports the Google Play Store, but Remix OS also has a taskbar and support for running Android apps in either full-screen or windowed modes.
While Jide develops the software, the company has also been making Remix OS available to other companies, and the Cube i10 Remix won’t be the first Cube tablet to run the software. Earlier this year Cube launched the Cube i7 Remix tablet with Remix OS.
The new Cube i10 Remix is basically a version of an existing tablet called the Cube i10. But instead of shipping with stock Android software and/or dual-boot Android and Windows software, the new version uses Jide’s custom version of Android.
The tablet features an Intel Atom Z3735 Bay Trail processor, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, an IPS display, mini HDMI output, a microSD card reader, front and rear cameras, and a 6,600 mAh battery.

Great price, but it’s time to stop making devices with Bay trail now… we want Cherry trail to be the standard in these inexpensive Windows devices.
I am waiting on my remix mini to see how it behaves. I bought two during the kickstarter campaign to donate to arctablet.com guys to see what can be done with it. This tablet at that price should be a nice addition once I sell my Vido M10 and Surface rt. The mini should be coming with the Remix 2.0/lollipop os already according to the forum updates we get. I am assuming the tablet will also come with it.
just make sure it doesn’t come with an illegal copy of android 😛
seems like a pretty damn good price. wonder what it will cost from the resellers. i’ve never bough a Cube tablet, but I’ve been tempted for awhile. at this price, it seems like its worth a shot
I have the Cube u30gt2 with 4.2.2, though a little dated it is a fine tablet. Only drawback is the wifi is not very powerful unless you are at least within good distance from your router. Don’t get me wrong, I love the tablet and it’s a kickass tablet, but for the wifi. But if you have a wifi extender I have been told it will work better. Arctablet.com has root for it and various kernels to over clock it that have reportedly worked for some to various degrees depending what lot tablet you have. It seems the later ones behave better than the original first lot. A recognized contributor there named Oma has also put out a lollipop rom for it, I just haven’t had the courage to flash it yet.
I’m personally using the Cube i10 and flashed the Remix OS on it. I can say its a pretty nice device but its running on the older Remix 1.0 and not the latest 1.5. Also with a few bugs here and there. But the device itself is pretty nice
So this would be 1366 x 768 (you forgot to mention the res) while the I7 is bigger and 1080p. Prices for the vanilla i10 seem to be 125-140$ while the i7 is 175-180$.
