Chinese tablet maker Cube’s U30GT2 tablet was one of the first devices to ship with a Rockchip RK3188 quad-core processor. I’m still busy testing that model, but it’s pretty fast.
Now Cube is working on a smaller tablet with the same speedy chip. It’s called the Cube U30GT MINI2, and it should hit the streets later this month for under $200.
The Cube U30GT MINI2 has a 7.9 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel IPS display, making the tablet about the same size and shape as an Apple iPad mini.
The tablet features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. It has a 4000mAH battery, HDMI output and a ARM Mali 400 graphics.
According to Geekbuying, the Cube U30GT MINI2 should be available by the end of April for about $190, which is about $75 cheaper than the Cube U30GT2, which has a 10.1 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, but which is otherwise a very similar tablet.
THE TABLET SUCKS…DONT BUY IT FOR ANY REASON
I really like this size and form factor for a tablet but wish it had a higher resolution screen. Can anyone tell me how much battery life one could expect with the 4000mAH battery?
But what does it weigh? The iPad Mini is only 308g. If the Cube is “only” as small but weighs considerably more it would be uninteresting from a technical point of view.
Brad, that’s actually a U33GTmini, the smaller brother of the new U33GT with a 9.7″ screen, they also have the U30GTmini 2 which is the 7″ version
Hmm… looks like the naming might not be final yet. Geekbuying is showing this model as the U30GT MINI 2, and there’s nothing on the Cube website with that name.
The 7 inch model doesn’t have a 2 in its name… and while there’s one page suggesting it has an RK3188 processor, if you click through to the product description you’re taken to a page for an older tablet with an RK3066 chip.
still no 8″ 720P tablets powered with RK3188 :/
