    Newbie....Want to buy a 10" tablet....I'm dizzy :(

    Hi All!!This is my 2nd post, first one about tablets. I'm looking for a general use tablet. Unfortunately I don't now anything about them.
    I read a lot of posts and could identify some important questions to check:

    -RAM size
    -Screen type and resolution
    -battery capacity/life
    -firmware support
    -case material
    -outputs type

    Some elements like camera are not important to me, except a front cam for skype.
    About ram size I believe 1G is the start point, and enough for me.
    Also I prefer to spend a bit more money and buy a 2-core or 4-core tablet.
    Battery....more is better, but how long it last is more important....then feedback is a must!
    Not very important but to take a look about onboard flash, only for final selection.
    I guess screen should be at least IPS, Capacitive multi touch (5-points its ok to me) and at least 1280*600.
    Of course I think metal case should be better, but not sure if really matters...
    About OS...4 or upper..
    What else? Of course retina and gorilla glass is the best, but only if you can paid for them....
    About cores, I read RK3066 and 3188 with Mali perform well, not sure about other cores...A31 for example..
    I tried to filter chinese only most supoported brands.
    My Budget is usd250 max, best if near usd200. At Last,
    I made a small list from Deal Extreme with the models I thougt better. Someones with best battery, others with quad-core or 2G ram....there are a lot out of there!!!

    Ampe A10 usd184
    Ainol Novo10 Hero usd194
    ViewSonic VB100a Pro usd195
    CUBE U30GT-UP usd206
    AMPE A10-4C usd218
    CHUWI V10 usd221
    ICOO ICOU10GT usd228
    ViewSonic ViewPad100N Pro
    Ramos W30 10.1'' IPS usd232
    PIPO M9 usd243

    And what about a T11 tablet? any know it? DX price is usd158...specifications doesnt look bad...Of course there are a lot of models there...I Accept ANY suggestion from any site which accept paypal. And donĀ“t know about Archos Arnova...looks very strange but with a lot of support here...why?
    Finally, I want to say thanks to all who read this long post, and of course who can anser...THANX!!

    There are very few Chinese brand I would trust. The one I've read the most positive things about is Cube. Reviews I've seen indicates they are holding up well.

    A good option around $200 is the Cube U30GT.


    • 10.1 inch IPS capacitive touch screen,1280*800 resolution,
    • Dual Core ARM Cortex A9,RK3066 CPU,1.6GHz per core,
    • Four core Mali 400 GPU,Support Graphics-heavy Game,high-end 3D games,Support 3D H.264 video decoder,
    • Support HDMI,WIFI,external 3G,
    • Latest Android ICS 4.0.4 OS,
    • 1GB DDR3 Ram,16GB nand flash

    If you spend a little more there is an upgraded version available. The Cube U30GT2.


    • 10.1 inch IPS capacitive touch screen, 1920 x 1200px, 240 DPI,10 point touch;
    • Rockchip RK3188, Cortex A9 quad core, 1.8GHz;
    • GPU: Mali-400 MP4
    • 2GB DDR3/32GB Storage;
    • Support WIFI 802.11 b/g/n
    • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean(Can Upgrade to Android 4.2 In future)
    • Dual camera, front is 2.0 megapixels, back is 5.0 megapixels with autofocus flashlight
    • Support OTG HDMI Gyroscope(three axis) Bluetooth

    Check out for information on both. seems a cheaper than DX. They also frequent this forum which means you are more likely to get good service.


      Thanks Chris for your answer

      I've read that is better not to choose A31core, because despite its a Quad one, it has four A7, and that option even is good for power saving puts a low roof to the posibilities of the tablet...wha do you think?

      About Cube U30GT and U30GT2, like them, but I took notice some complains about quality control this last times....may be someone here could tell more about this

      Like you I don't trust too much in chinese brands, I like this:

      PIPO MAX M9
      • 10.1 inch IPS capacitive touch screen, 1280*800 resolution,10-point touch;
      • CPU:Cortex-A9 Quad Core Rockchip RK3188 1.8GHz ,
      • GPU: Mali-400 MP4
      • Support WIFI 802.11 b/g/n
      • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS,upgraded to Android 4.2
      • 2GB DDR3 RAM, 16GB Storage;
      • Dual Camera, Front 2.0MP, Back 5.0MP
      • Support OTG HDMI Gyroscope Compass
      • Built-in 3D Accelerator. Support 3D gaming
      USD240 at GB.

      This other looks good:

      Ramos W30 (not Pro) USD232, with Quad Core Exynos....but not sure if better than RK3188. The Pro version costs too much (280) for me...

      Last option is to get a well known RK3066...what about Viewsonic 100N Pro or Ampe A10?

      I really appreciate your experiences..

      Best regards
