Cube i7 CM comes with Ubuntu installed as standard

Tablet maker Cube have just sent over the specifications of their latest tablet model which surprisingly comes with Ubuntu OS installed as standard.

Cube have been a favourite Chinese tablet maker for years now. They sprung to fame with their range of Android tablets and used their expertise to make some interesting Windows tablet devices too.

Their upcoming model, the Cube i7 CM is a surprise though as it ditches Windows and Android in favour of Ubuntu as standard.

Measuring in at 11.6-inch the tablet has a FHD 1920 x 1080 resolution, 2GHz Intel Core M processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB of SSD flash memory.
It’s also very impressive to see dual speakers, built-in SD card support and even native 3G connectivity from the tablet. Cube also say if you don’t fancy Ubuntu the tablet will also support Windows 8. Cube will be launching the Ubuntu powered Cube i7 CM on April 5th though Aliexpress at a promotional price of $399. No work on the link to the store or what the regular retail price might be.
