Please sit back, relax and enjoy our video review of the latest Android tablet to be introduced to our store front - the U15GT from Cube. Just a few notes to add about the video: the U15GT is said to have a 2600mAh battery which will give it an average battery life of 3 to 4 hours with WiFi constantly on. I also found the viewing angles to not be particularly clear, but facing straight ahead, you'll all fine and dandy. Other than that, the tablet was a joy to play around with and I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for an easy-to-use, entertainment tablet that is portable and easy to carry around. If this little guy tickles your fancy, head on over to its product page here!

We've got another little fellow over at our MP4 nation store that's up for grabs, at a price of course! But a great price it is for something that packs a huge punch into such a small and portable size. The U15GT from Cube is a 5-inch Android tablet that's powered by Rockchip's flagship RK2918 processor clocked at 1GHz ~ 1.2GHz. That's some serious power for a pocket-sized tablet. It also has a capacitive touchscreen capable of 1080p video playback, and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Not back at all! This bad boy only costs USD$154.50 and comes with a free set of Brianwavz Betas - woohoo! Check it out at our MP4 Nation web store via this link, and join in on our U15GT forum discussion here!
With Ainol's 5-inch NOVO5, Window's 5-inch N50 with RK2918 and now Cube's latest addition to their tablet line-up - the 5-inch U15GT, it looks as if 'the smaller the better' is back in trend. With a screen size any smaller than 5-inches, you might as well buy an smartphone, so 5-inches can be seen as the most suitable pocketable size for a tablet. But small in size doesn't mean small in hardware as these little guys house quite a punch. Click after the break to see what the U15GT is packing. Like the N50, Cube's U15GT also houses Rockchip's latest processing chip - the RK2918 - and clocked at 1.2GHz, which is quite a processor for such a small device. Its 5-inch screen has a resolution of 800 x 480, and has a wide screen aspect ratio of 16:9. The tablet also powers a GC800 3D grap
The pocket sized H700Pro is one of 4 recent tablets that Cube have set out into the wild, and which we've blogged about before. Here we are taking a closer look at the runt of the bunch. The H700Pro is 4.3-inches in size - a small but preferred (by mp4nation blogger HS and I) size, but despite that, it packs a punch with its other specs. The H700Pro runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), is powered by a RockCHip RK2918 processor and supports 1080p HD video playback - pretty much the top of the line stuff for China tabs at the moment (although we're not sure whether its screen is capacitive or not). The tablet also supports TV out and OTG, but unfortunately not HDMI. It is still a pretty decent little device, although something of this size does seem to be put to better use as a media player, wh
This babe out is just a mini one, but a babe out non the less. The subject at hand, or hers, is Cube's Android Gingerbread tablet, the U9GT. Cube are more known for their PMP's but have been soaking their feet in the tablet pool for a little while now. They seemed to of plunged a little deeper with the U9GT and its pretty decent specs. The U9GT is powered by a Rockchip RK2918 processing chip clocked (overclocked) at 1.2GHz and has 512MB of DDR3 (RAM). It has a capacitive touchscreen that appears to be 7-inches with a form factor of 4:3, and sports Android version 2.3 Gingerbread OS. It also uses a GC800 graphics processor, which is suppose to be able to spin wonders for 3D gaming. Gaming is great. It's a fantastic past time and we pay thanks to tablet makers who have given us the ability
Cube's latest addition to the smart PMP market is the H900 Pro, a 7-inch (800x480) full 1080p HD capable player running Google's Android 2.1 operating system. It's powered by the Novatek HD800B chip which should be able to decode HD video of a variety of file formats and codec types. The player presumably also comes with a PDF reading app, as that ability is advertised. However, as with smart PMPs, there is no WiFi on this device which limits its usability. You can always still download apps and copy them over to install, but smart PMPs have always given off the impression of leaving a job half done, as Android without WiFi or 3G internet access essentially robs it of its most important component (connectivity). via imp3
It would seem that smart PMPs - ultimately Android tablets without WiFi connectivity - have been doing right by consumers as they have been on the up as of late. Cube is no exception to this party as they are coming out with 4 new affordable MP4 players that will run Android OS: The H900Pro, the U5Pro, the U7Pro and the H700Pro. They range in size from the H700Pro sporting a 4.3-inch screen to the H900Pro sporting 7-inches with the middle two sporting 5-inches (the numbers in their model name seem to hold no relevance to their display size). The players also differ in processors that include: Rockchip, Boxchip and Novatek. And like we've also been seeing more and more of, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) is also in the picture with the H700Pro running that version of Android, whilst the other
Cube have announced their U8 S, an RK2818-powered 7-inch (800 x 480; resistive touchpanel) pad that runs Android 2.2. We recently saw Teclast with an announcement for Froyo on their T720 tab, so this is hardly surprising, but it looks like the movement is in full force now, and anybody with RK2818-powered devices should be looking for custom firmwares for their pads surfacing shortly. Other than that, the U8 S is everything you'd expect from an RK2818 tab - 256MB RAM, USB OTG with 3G USB dongle support, excellent handling of video playback of up to 720p across multiple video file formats, including but not limited to MKV, AVI, MPG, MP4, RMVB, WMV, VOB, DAT, etc., as well as HDMI-out. Much more interesting than the 2.1 RK2818 tabs that we've seen, such as the original U8. Image of settin
The Cube U9 is a mobile internet device that is similar to the Window N9 tablet that we've recently unboxed and blogged about. The U9 has a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 600, is powered by a RockChip RK2818 chip clocked at 660MHz and runs Android 2.1 (Eclair) - basic specs that's almost identical to the N9 (the N9 has a resolution of 800 x 480). Another similarity would be the overall look - a black frame around the screen with a contrasting back shell. The U9 has a light-silver metallic back as opposed to the pearl white that the N9 has. On the flip side, a notable difference would be the tablet's ratio. Whilst the N9 sports a wide screen with a ratio of 16:9, the U9 sports a ratio of 4:3, giving it a squarer shape. The U9 comes with 256MB or RAM as well as 25
It would seem that thin is not in with Cube as they bring out their K3HD portable media player - a small and chunky device capable of 720p video playback. The K3HD sports a 3.6-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480. Quite possibly in the attempts to make the player more convenient for carrying, the 3.6-inch screen still seems rather small to be watching HD videos on, especially whilst there are bigger fish out there. Small and chunky it may be, we can't deny that this brick of a player looks like it can withstand the test of wear and tear and a few drops here and there (not advertising you actually drop it to find out). Packaging wise, the player comes in a delightfully colourful box which includes standard earphones, cables and a manual. The K3HD has yet to have its processor chip
