New Tablet From CUBE: i6

I monitor CUBE on Weibo and this is a surprising announcement that I’ve seen only at 1Pad [Google Translate].


This is another Retina-class 9.7-inch tablet but it uses the Intel Z3735F with a peak frequency of 1.8GHz. It has 2GBs of RAM, 32GBs of internal storage, 2MP front and 5MP back cameras, microUSB OTG port, microSD card slot, Android 4.4.2, no word on battery size — and 3G is China Unicom. And the screen is IGZO. GPS available but probably requires a 3G connection.

Blog Notes: Xiaomi Overload!

I see that sometimes Xiaomi fills Weibo with lots of news.

I’m also seeing that I’m winding up with a blog that looks like it’s primarily about Xiaomi.

I’m going to handle this differently, starting tomorrow.

I’m going to try to combine all of the Xiaomi news into one post, when possible.

That will make finding something via Search a bit more work but I think it’d be better overall for the blog itself.

By the way, Weibo for Teclast, Onda, Five Technology, and most other tablet makers are checked first. So when Xiaomi posts pop on the blog, that means there’s no Weibo news from the others. It’s only after I’ve done Weibo that I go to the China tech sites.

Never Forget MIUI

MIUI. Has he heard of it?

Which also makes me wonder if Xiaomi might announce its own OS next week.
