Cube i7 Tablet a Good Choice for a Slightly Larger Tablet With Great Specs And a Core M3 Processor

Cube has a tablet out there that is generally overlooked. The Cube i7 model has a big advantage over most 10 inch class tablets in that it has a slightly larger 10.6 inch screen and most importantly an Intel Skylake Core M3 processor.

Combined with Windows 10 and 4 gb of ram this is a bit of a powerhouse when compared to all the Z8300 powered tablets out there. The price is what makes this one appealing at only $339.84.

Below are the full specs on this machine:

  • Windows 10
  • Intel Core m3-6Y30
  • Intel 9th Gen Graphics
  • WIFI: WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 31.82 WH battery, 7.4v/4300mAh
  • 1 x USB C port, 1 x micro USB port
  • HDMI port
  • microSD card supports up to 64 gb

Below is a short review I found online.

You can view all the specs and buy one right here.

Jumper EZpad 5SE Packs a Punch For a Very Reasonable Price.

jumper-ezpad-5seThe Jumper EZpad 5SE is a 10.6 inch Windows 10 tablet that offers some decent specs for a relatively low price.

However it does have some drawbacks as well. First and foremost it only comes with a USB cable but no charger. I find that rather odd. Of course if you have one of those handy multiple port USB chargers that I wrote about the other day it wouldn’t be an issue. However if you want to charge it from a computer or laptop you are looking at some mighty long charge times.

Now on to the positives for this tablet. If you are like me and already own a Bluetooth keyboard then this tablet might just fit the bill. The 2 position kickstand means you do not need to go out and purchase a case/stand. Another positive is the current price of $178.02

Now of course you are wondering what the specs are. This is a Windows 10 tablet, with a 10.6 inch IPS screen with a  1920 x1080 (FHD) display. It has 2 full size USB ports one of which is USB 3.0.

The full specs are listed below:

  • Windows 10
  • Intel Z8300 Quad Core processor
  • 10.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 (FHD)
  • 4gb ram
  • 64gb onboard storage
  • microSD card slot, up to 128gb
  • 2 USB full size port, 1 USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.0
  • micro HDMI port
  • 1 Micro USB port (charging is done via this port)
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • WiFi b/g/n

All things considered this is a decent package if you are perhaps looking for a Windows 10 tablet for light use. It can be found right here.

Dragon Touch X10 Update to Android 5.1.1 was a Success!

Screenshot from MY Dragon X10

So tonight’s project was to update the DTX10 to Android 5.1.1 and the update went great and all has been returned to functional, including the server,  on the tablet.

At first glance, no one would know that the system was updated. But it is a bit different in how the menus work and the dropdown for the notifications and settings are now in the center. 

 

Overall I would rate this as a worthwhile update, but it does have one minor glitch that probably won’t affect 99% of those using this tablet. But…the glitch involves the MAC address changing after every restart. No big deal for most people, but I am used to reserved IP addresses on my router and those are based on the MAC address of the device. That means extra work every time I either reboot or turn the tablet off.

Other than that and since very few folks will ever run a server on their tablet, the glitch is simply a non-issue. So if you have one of the older versions with Android 4.4.4, go ahead and do the upgrade!

The real irony here is that my flagship Asus Z580CA is still on Android 5.0. That is indeed a sad commentary on a company that used to value customer support.

Here is the link to get the Tool and update file needed to do the update. Click for the files.

Before you run this update, watch this video at least twice before running the update! It isn’t difficult, but it sure pays to know what you are going to do before you start! Not all the info is up to date, get the latest version when downloading.  (X10-HT-PW-V2-AL-5.1-20150115)

Saturday? Yep, and That Means it is Time for the Dragon Touch X10 report!

Chuwi HiBook Dual boot Tablet

This post borrowed from the Dragon Touch X10 Website…

Once again the Dragon Touch and I have arrived at my top-secret location to eat and type up this report.

As usual the DTX10 is functioning just fine and of course along with the Logitech K480 Bluetooth keyboard and M325 wireless mouse it still makes the best little notebook that $160 can buy!

Of course I am getting the itch to try something new in the tablet arena, and that something just might be a 10.1 inch dual boot tablet from a company called Chuwi. The model is the HiBook and it is on Amazon for $209 at the time of this writing. It is also available from Gearbest at an even lower price with free shipping.

The specs are great with 4gb ram, 64gb onboard storage, Quad core Intel CPU and Windows 10 and Android 5.1. A 1920 x 1200 display tops off the package.

Now one may ask the question: Why do you need a Windows 10 tablet? Well kiddies, it is simple and the answer is, Virtual Linux Machine, running the web server inside of Win 10!

And a short video…

This is by no means a done deal due to budget considerations, but this Chuwi is at the top of my list at this time.

That is all for today’s Dragon Touch report.
