We thought we had seen the cheapest an Android tablet could get when the Ainol Novo 7 reared it’s 7-inch screen running Ice-cream Sandwich, but today the Chinese tablet maker has released an even cheaper Android 4.0 tablet!
The new Ainol Novo 7 Paladin tablet sits below the Novo 7 Advanced and Novo 7 Basic, and as such has slightly different specs, yet still manages to pack Android Ice-cream Sandwich!
At the core of the Novo 7 Paladin sits the same Ingenic 1Ghz MIPS Xburst CPU as found in the Novo 7 Basic, The GPU is from Vivante and is clocked at 444Mhz, however to fit the lower price point of $79, the 7-inch Paladin doesn’t get an SD card slot or cameras as the Novo 7 Basic does.
Battery life is excellent, just as we have discovered with our own Ainol Tablet, with standby time rated at 300 hours, 25 hours for music only play back, 8 hours for video and 7 hours of web browsing.
