In case anyone else is interested, my Trekstor SurfTab Duo W1 Keyboard arrived yesterday. The Trekstor tablet is basically identical to the Windows-only 32GB/2GB Cube iWork 10 tablet, and the keyboard also fits perfectly on an iWork10 Ultimate. The keyboard layout is German QWERTZ and the hinge and back have a black rubberised coating which actually fits good with the blue paint job of the tablet and has a nice grippy feel. The four rubber feet are there as well, as well as a small Trekstor logo, the model (Surftab Duo W1) and a CE logo printed in white.
In other words, for less than the price of the Cube keyboard (30€ + P&P) you can in Europe buy a localised version of the same keyboard (so long as your locale is German, but for other locales you can put stickers on I guess the same as if you get the US layout).April 28, 2016 at 9:37 pm #35456richieParticipant

The Tekstor seems to be very similar to the Cube CDK05, Do you think that the keys could possibly be snaped out in order to switch them to another layout. Evil E who statrted this topic mentioned that it looks very difficult on the original model because there isn’t enough room arround the keys to insert a removal tool.
Do you feel this would also be the case with the Tekstor model ?

technically the TrekStor keyboard is, so far as I can see, absolutely identical to the Cube CDK05 – just a different finish on the bottom side. The keys are therefore going to be just as difficult to snap out as Evil E described above.
I guess you might be out of luck on this one, unless you manage to find a local brand offering a product from the same ODM.

Good news. It seems I will search for aproximetely half a year and see if there are any tablets with similar keyboard dock with english layout or original dock price is cut in half. If they will be cheeper then I will consider buying them. Right now spending one third of tablet price just for keyboard working only with this model is to much for me.June 5, 2016 at 4:53 pm #39940George AnasParticipant

For whoever interested in the original Cube iWork 10 keyboard, have a look around, because prices are getting higher …
I remember it was around $40 and now in best case it is $48 and mostly it is $60+July 4, 2016 at 3:22 am #42579Arnold Samuel ChanParticipant

I wonder how strong the “lugs” that hold the tablet?
i think the tablet’s weight stressed over only on those 2 lugs. Not sure it’s going longlasting with the designJuly 22, 2016 at 2:45 pm #44205MichaelParticipant

I got the keyboard today. But it seems to be impossible to push the part with the pin holder backwards so that it is possible to dock the tablet. Is there any locking mechanism which i don’t get? anyone with this issue?July 22, 2016 at 7:43 pm #44227ScutMonkeyParticipant

The same thing happened with me. I ended up sliding the tablet onto the keyboard face down and then it opened easily. It made me nervous that it would scratch the glass but it didn’t.July 26, 2016 at 6:20 pm #44609MichaelParticipant

I using it. And keyboard is good but touchpad verry bad, U can’t touch, drag or use gesture of windows 10 with it. Almost, I used touch screen more than touchpad, but when u take on dock, using touch screen inconvenience. I was update windows to Windows 10 anniversary
