I mentioned the Cube player in the previous post but at the time it wasn’t available to purchase and there was little information about it around the net. Well the player is now available to buy for the same $160 that the Window N50 is selling for. Currently you’ll find it at www.jtshoponline.com but expect it (and the N50) in other stores in the coming weeks. It does look like the specs are identical to those of the N50, the only differences being the aesthetics and perhaps the choice of display (though both are capacitive, support 5 point multi touch, and are 800×480).
We can likely expect more companies to jump on this bandwagon in the coming weeks with the likes of Onda and Ainol, perhaps even Gemei or Ramos and some no-brands releasing their own take on the 5″ RK2918 micro tablet. I’ve managed to reign myself in so far, instead I bagged a cheap Touchpad last week so that should probably be my frivolous spending done for this month at least. Anyone else taken the leap on one of these tiny tablets? I’d be interested to hear your experiences if so, good or bad.
I found a video of the Cube’s UI on youtube. It does look as though the video has been sped up, but it’s clear even with the increase in speed that the device is performing very well (at least in the tasks the demo’er is demo’ing).
