This slim, sleek tablet packs a lot of weigh compared to other comparative dual boot contenders. An Aluminium rear often only seen in the more expensive brands, this is obviously a device that’s easily admired and definitely dresses to impress.
Cameras & Storage
The Cube i10 offers 32 GB in total split between the 2 operating systems - Windows 24GB, Android 4.4.8GB with no linking between both operating systems for sharing photos, documents, or other app data. A word of advice - a microSD card larger than 32GB is a definite requirement.

The Cube i10 has the lasting power of full use at around 5 hours that can be combated by the use of a portable external battery power bank, offered via One Tech Gadgets.
