Cube, a Chinese tablet manufacturer, is touting their forthcoming release of the U9GT5, a 9.7″ Android 4.1 tablet that will feature a 2048 x 1536 retina display with 264 PPI. In case those screen specifications don’t ring a bell with you, 2048 x 1536/264 PPI is the exact same resolution featured on the new iPad (along with the same physical dimensions of the screen), infamous for its groundbreaking retina display technology. Cube is hoping to charge about $200 for their new tablet, which would be a shocking deal when compared to the iPad’s $499-and-up price tag. Some have suggested that Andriod’s ratio would interfere with screen clarity, but perhaps they already found a fix for that. This tablet will be released in “China first,” so unless you want to tangle with an obscure Chinese Internet commerce site, you might not get to see this. I doubt, with Apple’s considerable legal power in the US, that it will make it over here.
