Chinese tablet brand CUBE has been churning out some pretty decent models over the last little while and the new CUBE U39GT shouldn’t disappoint. It’s one a massive number of models based on Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core SoC CPU but is accompanied by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of flash, preloaded with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system. Many tablets are still coming with only 1GB of RAM so having 2GB is a good move by CUBE.
It’s a 9-inch form factor but comes with a decent 1920×1080-pixel (Full HD) Samsung-PLS panel, driven by ARM’s Mali-400 MP4 quad-core graphics engine. The storage can be expanded by MicroSD card, up to 32GB per card and there’s a decent 5200mAh Lithium-ion battery on-board.
Networking is covered well with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 available. There’s also a miniHDMI port to output the display to your big-screen TV.
It even comes with dual cameras – a basic 2MP sensor on the front and a better 5MP sensor with auto-focus on the back. Given its size, it’s not too bad for weight, tipping the scales at around 480 grams. You’ll find this one listed on the CUBE website for $198, which isn’t bad value for what you’re getting.
