The Cube iWork8 Air competes with other tablets such as the Teclast X80 Pro or the newer Teclast X80 Power, which basically offers the same hardware and features and also an 8.0 inch device. Basing on the information gathered, it will most probably have a Plastic Construction and build, which I am expecting. In relation, the Teclast X80 Power which I reviewed recently, cost a bit more but does offer an All aluminum build.

What would you expect in terms of Performance, Battery?

Modest to say the least. For multimedia usage, you would likely be using Android OS more than windows. Basing from my experience with the Teclast X80 Power, it can handle easily apps and games, be it light to moderate titles. The 2 GB RAM is also enough for most uses and multitasking uses. The 1200p Display is also a big plus, at this price range, I would commend it as it’s biggest value. However, the 3500mAh Battery, you will probably get around 2 to 3 hours of usage, which is really not much.  But this is basing on my actual usage of the Teclast X80 Power which offered practically the same overall hardware.

Biggest Plus: Sub$100 Dual OS and Good Screen

Probably the major points of this tablet is the Sub$100 pricing, even cheaper than the Teclast X80 Power but close to the Teclast X80 Pro. Also Dual OS Support for those who wants to have both multimedia and productivity and also a good screen to boot.
