Limited time sale on the Cube iWork8 dual OS tablet [sponsored post]

It's summer now.  Calendar-wise, and pretty much weather-wise as well.  TO me, that means it's time to lay out in the sun when I can.  I have a lovely hammock and some patio chairs (that I can enjoy only after I've done all the mowing), then what to do while I relax?  Well, besides a cold beverage having some screen time is fun.

It's one of the few times that I prefer using a tablet to just my phone.  Screen size, sun angles etc... a tablet is just easier to read.

Now if it's going to be my outdoor device, I'm not going to want to pick out something that's all that expensive.  I might spill my beverage on it... I might drop it when I doze off... it might get bug spray on it... so I don't want anything onerously too expensive.  More and more these dual boot tablets are catching my eye.  The latest one shown to me which is tempting is the Cube iWork8 Ultimate Tablet

Showing up at only $100CDN (check daily for the exchange rate) it doesn't seem half bad.  Here's what you get

  • 8" @ 1280x800
  • 1.44Ghzx4 Intel Atom x5-Z8300
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB storage + microSD (up to 32GB)
  • 2MP/2MP
  • 3300mAh
  • Android 5.1 / Windows 10

So, the limiting the SD card to just 32 is a little harsh, as I like to use cards(when I use cards) to the minimum of 64GB and load it up with movies.  But having 32 on board helps.

How much is left over after both OS installed ... not sure.  There's a photo in the site that shows an about screen on Windows 10 showing 13GB free of 16GB, which makes me wonder if they have separate drives for each (and can you access one from the other?).

Well, I guess the 2MP camera is a limiting factor too... but I never use a tablet to take photos, so I doubt I'd hardly notice.

Even neater is that it comes with an OTG cable for you to use - that's handy.

It looks like a decent buy.  And for $100 it's in that 'meh, I don't care" area to be concerned about whether it'll get future updates (or even current) etc...

What do you think?
