Cube announces the U9GT5 Jelly Bean tablet with an iPad-like display
Chinese manufacturer Cube may not be a household name in Europe or the United States, but after unveiling its latest tablet, dubbed U9GT5, that could change. According to a report from Android Authority, the mobile device is based on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and is expected to have a starting price of between $150 and $200. There is still no word on availability, though.
Apart from the catchy name, the U9GT5 offers a 9.7-inch In-Plane Switching 2048-by-1536 “retina” display that has 264ppi (pixels per inch density), just like the third generation Apple iPad. Furthermore, the slate computer is powered by a dual-core Rockchip RK3066 central processing unit clocked at 1.6GHz and a quad-core ARM Mali 400 graphics card.
Beneath the high-resolution screen, one can find 1GB of RAM and 8 or 16GB of internal storage. Other features apparently include Wireless LAN and Bluetooth connectivity, rear-facing camera with LED flash and access to the Google Play store.
