If you’re looking for an Android tablet that doesn’t skimp out on specs, but at the same time won’t cost a fortune, you may want to consider getting the Cube U30GT2.
We’ve seen some worthy tabs from Cube in the past, such as the 9.7-inch U9GT5, which was released last year sporting a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution and offered for about $270. The 10.1-inch U30GT2 only packs a 1080p IPS screen of 1,920 x 1,200 resolution. However, the overall specs have been vastly improved.
Starting with the processor, instead of going the dual-core route, the slate is powered by a quad-core 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, Mali 400 GPU, and paired with 2GB of RAM. On paper, the CPU is apparently faster than both Tegra 3 and Exynos 4412.
The Cube U30GT2 also comes with 32GB internal storage, microSD support, a 5-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel front cam, a mini HDMI slot, an 8,000mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean onboard.
As for its price, you can grab the tablet online for $250, but remember to factor in the shipping fee as well. We heard that Cube has shipped out the first batch of the tab. If you order now, you can expect to have the U30GT2 delivered in 1-3 weeks. Planning to take a leap of faith? Like other budget tablets, keep in mind that the build quality may not be as good as some of the bigger OEMs.
