Novo Series Tablet Finally Show Up But Without Android 3.0

A few months ago tablet maker Ainol showed off their planned Novo concept tablet in all its splendid shiny white, Honeycomb packed glory.
Since then though Google have announced that Android 3.0 won’t be released just yet and so Ainol have had to slap in a copy of Android 2.2 on the new machines, which come in 4 sizes ranging from 4 – 8 inches.

The Novo 4 gets a 480 x 272 resolution screen, Novo 5 gets a 5 inch 800 x 480 resolution screen, Novo 7 is a 7 inch 800 x 480 resolution device, while the biggest Novo 8 has a resolution of 1280 x 768 on an 8 inch screen.

The Novo 8 also gets a front facing web camera, and a track ball for navigating menus.

Pricing is still not certain yet, although we expect the 7 inch resistive screened version to cost approximately 1000 Yuan ($153).

We’ll publish more when we get the full details.
