Deal Details

Last Edited by Evo-IC August 13, 2012 at 03:30 AM
I've been getting PM's since I posted THIS DEAL a few weeks ago about recommending a good deal on a budget tablet that had a better / nicer screen.
People did not like the 800x480 resolution of the other one, so I've been looking for deal with the same features or better and a screen that was at least 1024x resolution.

I found this deal and it's solid because of the price, the screen, the ability to charge via USB, the included screen protector, and the expedited shipping for free....among other things.

Cube U18GT Elite - $89.99 Shipped Free
Deal is now $94.99, but the custom Cube leather case and Free DHL shipping are included until sold out.
Here's the LINK [in4dealz.com] for the deal page.

Cube is an actual, "branded" tablet, not a generic Chinese knock-off.
They make a quality product and are very, very well known in the Android geek world. Stick Out Tongue
This should be considerably better quality than your standard no-name budget device.

Highlights:
  • 7 inch, Five-point, Capacitive, Touch screen, Ultra-crisp, 1024*600 Resolution
  • RK2918 CPU, Cortex A8 processor, clocked at up to 1.2 GHz. Vivante GC800 GPU
  • 1GB DDR3 RAM, 8GB NAND Flash Storage
  • Android 4.0 OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, Built-in Google Play Store (Android Market), can download hundreds of thousands of free and paid apps
  • 1080P decoding, supports 3D accelerated graphics
  • Supports WIFI and External 3G
  • Front-facing camera, Built-in HDMI capability with port
  • Can charge via USB Cable
  • Support Skype Video Chat


*Sidenote*
I would have posted it for McBub, (Big GrinBig Grin) just to give the haters something to scream about, but McBub is more than 20% higher than this site because of a clearance price.

Anyone know why these tablets don't use the micro USB connection instead of the mini USB? I've had two Android phones and a Blackberry, and they all use the the micro USB, so I was hoping to find a compatible tablet, but I can't find one.

Great deal.

I just bought the Nexus7 a couple weeks back, so not in the market right now, but I think an Android tablet will be the gift I get for the kids this Christmas. In 4 months, I can only imagine what specs they'll have at this price point. Hopefully 10", dual-core, 1GB/8GB and Jellybean!

This 10" one is $130 right now from Sears, not too shabby: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_1015...335326000P

This is also something to consider and it has a 5000 ma battery. But I think i like the 7" size better for portability. Reps for both, great deals guys! Big Grin

Very interesting deal. I've been looking at getting a cheap tablet for the kids. Nearly went for the Nook Tablet, but this one is even more intriguing. Seriously appreciate your efforts Evo.

I don't know about that product, but I've got nothing but praise for Monoprice. Great prices, ships fast, no issues. But you don't have to take my word for it:
