the Novo 7 Elf II and it’ll only differ from Aurora II by not having an IPS display
Chinese tablet manufacturer Ainol has come up with their tablet that is powered by the Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and even more interesting would be the price point – we are talking about just $190 a pop. Expect the Ainol Novo 7 Aurora II to arrive sometime this month, where it will come with a 7″ IPS display at 1024 x 600 resolution, a 1.5GHz Amlogic ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor underneath the hood that is accompanied by 1GB RAM and up to 8GB of storage space. There IPS display is a 5-point capacitive touchscreen, and other hardware specifications include a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, a G-sensor, 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes.
In addition to the usual tasks you are likely to do with a tablet, this ainol novo 7 aurora 16gb versio android 4.0 tablet should make a decent low cost gaming platform. While 7-inch tablets are a handy enough size for use in the hands, they weigh a lot more than your typical hand held gaming console.
A PS Vita for example weighs in at a nice handy 260 to 278 grams. The first generation TENQ 7-inch weighed in at 384 grams, and the newer lighter variants weigh in at 345 grams or so. The Ainol Novo 7 Aurora tips the scapes at 313 grams, coming closer to the weight of a gaming console, making it friendlier when used in hand. The lighter weight is likely to the less than premium quality material used, but at Php6,800 we don’t expect too much.
The use of a IPS display instead of a ordinary LCD improves the visual experience, and the Mali 400 graphics should do a decent job of playing most 3D games. Still, this tablet wont run games that require dual core processors. Ainol does have the dual core Novo 7 Elf II, but we have not seen that on local shelves yet.
And may be you know that Ainol will also have a cheaper version of this same tablet available, named the Novo 7 Elf II and it’ll only differ from Aurora II by not having an IPS display.
