In a Weibo communiqué, CUBE announced its new iWork 7, a seven-inch Windows 8.1 tablet:

The existence of an official keyboard case combined with the tablet’s alleged 4:3 aspect ratio could signal that Google wants to make a stronger push to sell tablets as productivity devices, more than simply portals to Google Play content.
I’ve ignored news about this because I didn’t expect it to be 4:3. I still doubt it will be. I don’t know of any screens between the size of the iPad Mini and iPad Air that are also 4:3.
The Blu Studio 5.0 C HD is one of the phones I’ve been wondering about as a possible buy.
It’s — usually — just US$149 at Amazon.
720p screen, 1GB RAM, a stingy 4GBs of storage (but it has a microSD card slot), a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek 6582 CPU, and — as seen after the break — a video camera and microphone that’s surprisingly good for the price. AnTuTu in the 17,000-range.
I post this because it should shame every damn tablet maker in China who puts something worse in a tablet that’s priced higher.
Would you rather own two mediocre “smartwatches” at $199 or one really good one that you’ll actually use at $399? The answer should be obvious.
My head spins like a drunken top every time I begin to investigate what I should buy for a smartphone or tablet.
I’m not sure it’d be much different if I had all the money in the world: Because then I’d flay myself over whether I should spend the money on two things instead of just one. I really don’t want to wind up with more than I’d actually use.
