Android 4.0 ICS tablet Ainol Novo 7 Aurora Review!

Bookmark and Share
Those who were broken hearted about the Ainol Novo 7 Advanced going out of production, need not feel lost anymore, for a new leaner and meaner machine has started to roll out of the ubiquitous production lines of Shenzhen, China! it's a wonder anyone can keep up with how fast this industry is changing. You buy what you think is a decent tablet and then 2 weeks later another tablet comes out to replace it at the same price with specs that leave your 2 week old tablet feeling like a bewildered dinosaur.

The new Ainol Novo 7 Aurora tablet that is set to either make you cry or jump for joy has been officially launched, BUT!! and a big but! this item is now out of stock everywhere, just like the Advanced version, really in short supply among the market, you can even see someone's still waiting for his 15/1/2012 unshipped order on pandawill, as i know, there's only one site have this item in stock, that's >

Some might get confused by the specs as they look almost identical to the Ainol Novo 7 Elf - there is one big difference between these two heavyweights and it's the reason for the Novo 7 Aurora's higher price tag...the Aurora boasts a vibrant, crisp and shiny IPS 5 point multitouch screen and is the first 7 inch tablet in the world to suppport multi-touch with an IPS display which is far more responsive than the Novo 7 Elf's capacitive screen. Both tablets are android 4.0 tablets and each have a 1.5ghz Allwinner Many-Core processor (firmware running on 1.0GHz) with 1GB DDR3 Ram.

Some are asking if it has bluetooth, YES it does but only the -Bluetooth Share' feature, which should be adequate enough for most, if not - this tablet isn't for you. Also, another big question is the Android Market - is it supported out of the box? the answer is a definite, NO. However, it won't be long until someone cracks this and I have word that someone is on it right now! - with the Android Market fixed, the Ainol Novo 7 Aurora will be close to taking the crown for 7 inch tablets coming out of China (for a few months).

The Novo 7 Advanced is dead, long live Aurora!
