Cube’s i7 Stylus is a Wacom-stylus powered Intel Core-M tablet


Wacom is perhaps the most well-known name when we’re talking touch panels; and it would be only natural for a Chinese brand to flaunt the affiliation with the brand, if it is the case.

Chinese tablet maker Cube today announced the Cube i7 Stylus tablet, which being very true to its name, comes with a stylus. The i7 Stylus also comes with an Intel Core-M series 5Y10c processor, and a healthy 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM.

If that isn’t enough to raise your eyebrows already, the tablet also features 64-bit of on-board storage,  a rather massive 9,000mAh battery and a camera combo of a 5 mega-pixel rear and a 2 mega-pixel front. The i7 Stylus’ display will be a 1920 x 1080p 10.6 inch panel (apparently an IGZO panel), running full Windows 8.1 (sorry, no dual boot here).

Unfortunately though, the stylus part of the Cube i7 Stylus isn’t a part of the package; the stylus, along with the keyboard case will be sold separately. The tablet itself will be made available for 1,999 Yuan (US$320) starting 18th of this month via Chinese shopping portal JD.com.

      healthy for general use..not for heavy graphic game and work

        Who expect heavy graphic game on a 10 inch tablet. I mean we have to be a bit more realistic, I graphic card alone cost more and is bigger than this tablet. For what it offers that is portability, autonomy and price it is a terrific buy.

    This damn 16:9 ration was never good for laptops and it’s even worse for (large) tablets. It only makes sense to phones and TVs, why do those chinese companies obsolete their products before release?

    Just copy Microsoft already. 3:2 is neither too square or too elongated, it’s pretty much the perfect ratio. I keep turning down Windows tablets because of the disastrous aspect ratios of theirs…

      most android use 16:9..they just follow trend

        Android tabs are either 16:10 (e.g xperia Z4) or 4:3 (Tab S2, Nexus 9). There was never (ever) released a 16:9 android tablet. That’s an exlusively Windows thing … unfortunately… I mean not even Microsoft follows it (they use 3:2) but OEMs do, very sad.

          Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 use 16:9 ratio though..Nexus 9 is the first mainstream Android tablet uses 4:3. Not many Android uses 4:3 ratio before 2015..I think you better check your information…I still remember people say 4:3 or 3:2 is ugly…

            I’m writing from a Note 10.1. It’s 16:10 (2560×1600).
            All Samsung androids in 2015 use 4:3
            XiaoMI and Nexus also 4:3

            All tablets before 2015 16:10 except the origina kindle fire (15:9)

            Only the ugly Windows tablets use 16:9
            Microsoft used 3:2 because it’s good both for movies and Surfing (it’s in between old android tablets android ipads). It’s the best ratio I’ve ever used, everything else is restrictive (iPad s*cks for movies, my Note is not as good for surfing, but 3:2 is good for both)

              Are you sure 100%?

              You don’t have to believe me. According to gsmarena (the most extensive database for mobiles) only two FHD (16:9) tables using Android were ever released. And none of them probably even reached the western markets.

              The 16:10 used is/was closer to 3:2 dimensions than to 16:9 ones.

            • kzm
              June 6, 2015

              you just dismiss what your comment say previously that no android tablet never ever release that ratio

            • Stef
              June 6, 2015

              Well I taking about the western markets. But even if 2 tablets were ever released with this ratio how does it change my initial argument that 16:9 is only used by Windows tablets. 2 out of several thousands is practically zero, a statistical anomaly. I’m not even sure if they were trully related to begin with. I mean one of the two was 18 inches for crying out loud.

              So yeah I was technically wrong to say that *no* -android was released at that ratio, but practically I was right. Neeext…

              nvidia shield tablet sold at western market though…but im pretty there is no where near several thousand android model is made until now..many brand windows tablet uses 16:10..even most chinese branded windows uses 16:10

            • Stef
              June 6, 2015

              Nvidia shield tablet is 16:10.
              16:10 is closer to 3:2 than 16:9 . 16:9 is extreeemely oblong.

              Yeah, like I said, not English. Probably a bot putting random words together. AI has a long way to go if current efforts of it are so poor.

    4GB of RAM is not healthy especially for running 64 bit Windows. That is the bare minimum you need for it to be even semi-functional.

      seem okay for me 4GB RAM 64 bit W8.1 and W10TP on my 2013 laptop

        What do you use it for? I had a notebook with almost this same exact setup only with an i3 and it was barely useable with 8.1. Anything other than light browsing or very basic tasks was out of the question.
