Chinese tablet-maker Shenzhen AlldoCube Technology And Science Co., Ltd (Cube) has announced a new entry in its line of low-cost pen-abled tablets, the Cube Mix Plus.
The Mix Plus is the successor to the Cube i7 Book, which I reviewed positively earlier this year.
The new tablet features a Kaby Lake Core M3-7Y30 Dual Core 1.61GHz processor, 10.6 inch IPS Capacitive Screen, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 2.0MP + 5.0MP Cameras, Bluetooth 4.0 OTA OTG and a Wacom EMR digitizer. Pen and clamshell keyboard cover are sold separately.
Gearbest.com is now taking pre-orders for $475 for the standalone tablet. The device is scheduled to ship after Dec. 14.
The Mix Plus appears to be a dual OS device, shipping with Windows 10 and Android pre-installed. Not much information on the Android functionality is listed, but the Gearbest product description offers the following ominous warning: "Any alterations such as upgrades, modding with custom ROM, rooting or flashing the Android device with other firmware will automatically cause the device experience matters as well as void the device's warranty. Please think twice before operating all these actions."
From the images, the Cube Mix Plus design and build quality appears to have been refined over the i7 Book or the original i7 Stylus, which I reviewed as the Mytrix Complex 11t. The new processor should yield a very satisfactory sketching experience.
