The war against the big names in the sector of hybrid 2-in-1, these tablets can be associated with a full physical QWERTY keyboard and come with an operating system in effect for productive use, continues unabated. China continues to churn out very interesting products that challenge so direct Microsoft, Apple, Samsung and singer Company: today is the turn of CUBE iWork12, a hybrid tablet with dual boot came on the pages of the Chinese producer CUBE and, in parallel, in rebate flash GearBest.
The device features a front display from 12.2″ IPS WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200 pixels, Full HD for 16:10), a processor Intel Atom Cherry Trail x5-Z8300 with 1.44 GHz base clock (in boost up to 1.84 GHz), 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Room on the back side there is a 5 megapixel sensor and a front 2 megapixel for video calls. Not lacking Bluetooth 4.0, stereo speakers, USB 3.0 Type-A, a USB 3.1 Type-C video output, slot micro SD, and external DC power supply (not Micro USB, questionable choice) for recharging the integrated battery 9000 mAh. The key feature is the use of two OS at startup to choose from, respectively, Windows 10 or Android Lollipop 5.1, something very convenient for those who prefer the multimedia or OS games of the green robot OS and productivity of Microsoft, but he does not want to give up either of two things.
CUBE iWork 12, with dimensions of 302.9 x 194.9 x 9.2 mm and 930 grams, is available for purchase. Eye, however: it is hybrid, but not in the package integrates a keyboard, which must be purchased separately (and that also is currently difficult to find). Be careful when you choose the Chinese hybrids, because often this “minor detail” could escape.
