Cube’s TALK9, a 9 inch tablet powered by a quad core Mediatek processor with 3G and voice calling is now on sale in China, priced just $181 (1099 Yuan)!

True to its name, the tablet will have a 9 inch screen with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Other specifications include 1GB RAM, 16GB ROM plus microSD slot for further expansion, 5 mega-pixel rear and 2 mega-pixel front cameras, 3G support (WCDMA) with voice calling, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, OTG. Powered by a 5,300mAh battery, the Cube TALK9 will run on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean. All this, inside a metal-clad body measuring 232.6 x 153.5 x 9 mm!
