Update 1 / the links to buy the Cube i7 Book are now live , this is the link for the device , and this is the keyboard , and this is the pen.
Cube announced their latest 2in1 device ,and this time it’s a true 2in1 device not just a tablet with a keyboard ,it’s a detachable tablet with keyboard that have a flexible hinge ,the Cube i7 Book also support a battery-less Wacom EMR pen stylus (which is a rare thing these days ,most tablet today use Wacom AES or other active pen tech) ,so you can use any Wacom EMR pen but the pen from Cube is a good option because of its price (30$) and the fact it have a top eraser.
The Cube i7 book have a USB-C port and unlike the previous generation the i7 Book doesn’t have a USB-A port in the tablet ,but it have a USB-A port in the keyboard dock .
Here’s a summery for the specs :-
- Skylake Core m3
- 10.6 inch IPS Touchscreen with 1920 x 1080 Resolution
- 4GB LPDDR3L RAM
- 64GB SSD
- Wacom EMR Stylus
- Windows 10 OS
- USB-C 3.1 and Micro SD , and a separate port for charging
- USB-A on the keyboard dock
- Weight is 710 grams
- 2MP front and back cameras
- Battery Capacity is 4500mAh
Like the Cube i7 Stylus the coming Cube i7 Book is going to be one of the best cheap pen enabled tablets on the market ,the price with Chinese tablets isn’t fixed so it’s going to fluctuate between 300$ and 400$ ,at that price it’s an amazing value,and it will be very popular especially for students who look for a pen enabled PC at a cheap price.
I’m going to try and get a review unit to form a complete opinion about this device .
The tablet is going to be sold at Gearbest and others Chinese grey market stores (expected next month) ,you will not see it officially in your country any time soon ,here’s a link for the tablet on there store ,and this is the pen . and to stay up to date on the latest news of pen enabled device and apps please follow us on twitter
