This 8-inch slate has a quad-core MediaTek processor, 1 GB of memory, 8 GB of storage and offers calling capabilities via WCDMA and GSM connectivity.

Although most big names in the industry avoid this kind of devices, large tablets that feature calling capabilities are quite popular with Chinese companies. The Cube TALK8 is such a slate that will launch soon for about $96 USD and will compete with many low-end tablets and smartphones, but will also offer more than each of these categories of products does.

Cube TALK8 has a very modest set of specs and features, as you can see below:

  • Processor: 1.3 GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK8382
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage
  • Display: 8-inch IPS touchscreen with 1,280X800 pixels
  • Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 5 MP back
  • Connectivity: 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Battery: 4,200 mAh

While lack of 4G connectivity and the low pixel density of the screen will keep away some potential customers, this slate could become one of the best choices for those who need a cheap 3G tablet to use as a phone as well.

For now, additional details such as battery life, availability of a microSD slot or the Android version that will be loaded are still unknown. Launch date has not been revealed yet either, but the Cube TALK8 will surely emerge on eBay, Amazon and various Chinese online stores as soon as that happens.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
