Alldocube Technology and Science have manufactured the U30GT model which is one of the first Android 4.1 tablet PCs based on the new Rockchip RK3066 Dual Cortex A9 Processor. This highly anticipated tablet offers the very best hardware configurations available at a very competitive price. The U30GT is equipped with a dazzling 10.1” 1280x800 IPS capacitive screen with 10 point multi touch capability, visible at wide 178 degree viewing angles. Images are rendered with amazing clarity and are ridulously crisp. It has many advantages over the iPad2, Its lightening fast Dual core 1.6GHz cortex A9 CPU delivers immense power (iPad2 A5 1Ghz) and offers many core techs including GPU, DPU and VEPU, yet energy saving engineering can hold it on standby for weeks. The processor is paired up with a Quad Core Mali 400 3D GPU, DDR3 1GB RAM and a 16GB of internal storage.
It operates on the all new designed Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS which is specifically designed for Tablet PCs. It is perfectly matched with this CPU and runs flawlessly with no lags or crashes. The user interface is built around the things people love the most about Android – easy multi tasking, rich notifications, customised home screens, smooth at transition and all keys virtualised. You can even merge the file folder like the Apple iOS, switch between multi-tasks, plus all new widget tools are available.
Furthermore, Adobe Flash 11 and HTML5 is supported as well as many E-Book formats. The U30GT is equipped with a front and back (with LED light) 2.0 MP cameras producing HD pictures. By using the built-in microphone and speakers, you can make video calls via Skype, MSN, Yahoo and other third-party applications.
The body of the CUBE U30GT dual-core has been face lifted with a new design both slim and lightweight. As we can see, the design is more mature and elegant with metal surrounding around the edges leaving a stable and strong impression yet better resists accidental fall, extrusion and impact. The borders around the screen aren't too small for grabbing the device, and aren't too huge to be uncomfortable to hold it. The back plate is a single piece of hard plastic, though it feels high-quality, almost piano paint-like. The thickness is remarkable only measuring 9.6mm all around yet the thinnest edges is only 4mm.
Interestingly, the device is actually smaller in size in realtion to the screen's robust 10.1" and 1280x800 resolution: 260.6mm x 170.6mm. The screen ratio is 16:10, which is much more preferred for Android than the 4:3 used by many 9.7" tablets. The front of the device is made of tempered glass, which feels good to the touch, and definitely feels rich in quality. All the ports and buttons are to the left side (in landscape mode), giving three clean edges around the tablet.
IPS screen @ 1280x800, HD and 3D decoding.
As we all know there’re many 9.7” tablets with IPS displays, but the 10+ inch is a rarity. So, the 10.1” high resolution IPS screen provides a wider visible angel and more exquisite effects to the user. The screen is manufactured by HannStar which is domestically renowned for prudcing high quality displays., the same screen is also used in Asus TF101. Light transmittance from this beautiful flat panel makes it more atmospheric. Such that performance in the picture is transparent and pure. The smooth, high hardness of the glass surface is crystal clear and images are always bright and vibrant. Yet the high-strength tempered glass material is highly wear-resistant, accurate.
The High definition screen produces 1280 * 800 resolution (better than the iPad2) with huge viewing angles (89°/90°) and no matter where you are in the room or under the sun, the screen is always clear. Deep colour reproductions and high contrast ratio, offers a better visual enjoyment.
10 point multi touch further improves the gaming experience on both the tablet and your HDTV screen. G sensors are very sensity and thanks to its Quad Core GPU the performance from energy demanding 3D games is flawless, in fact all the test sample from full HD videos and 3D games never froze or buffered.
3D decoding technology allows the user to wear the red and blue 3D glasses, the playback needs to be saved in a 3D format. You can also connect the tablet to your 3DTV and it will carry over the 3D video through the HDMI connection, so you can watch 3DM and play Android 3D supported games on your big screen.
Lightening fast Performance
The Rk3066 Dual Core A9 CPU has a frequency of up to 1.6 GHz which is paired with a Quad core Mali-400 3D GPU. This brilliant configuration of a “2+4”processor offers a powerful engine for the Android ICS 4.0 system. The tablet delivers flawless graphics and zero buffering when playing OpenGL 3D games (download Free from android market). Multi tasking runs flawlessly and so does HD video playback even when streaming. DDR3 1GB ram allows for a number of tasks and programs to be run together with no decline in speed or responsiveness. As well as allowing for data to be processed swifter.
The U30GT offers 8hours audio playback, 7 hours of video playback, 5 hours of browsing, and 190 hours of screen-off standby. Turn-on speed is very fast, less than 25 seconds. It supports WIFI 802.11b/g/n and support WiFi-Direct which allows two devices to be connected with each other without the wireless routing. External 3G dongle can also be connected. Further a built-in Bluetooth modules is available for remote device and data access.
