Ainol Novo 7 Crystal 2 quad-core 7-inch tablet for less than $100!

It’s not often that we write about Android tablets here, but when we get wind of a new Ainol tablet like the Novo 7 Crystal, it’s hard to ignore it.

A few years ago Ainol pounced on the tablet world with their then new Novo 7 range of 7-inch tablets. The tablets represented great value for money and were actually one of the first device to run Android ICS!

Gizchina News of the week

The Ainol Novo 7 range has evolved a lot since then and now comprises of a number of well priced devices all offering up to date hardware. The Ainol Novo 7 Crystal is one of the more popular models in the range thanks to the 1024 x 600 7-inch display, quad-core CPU and large(isn) 3700mAh battery.

It also doesn’t harm matters that the Ainol Novo 7 Crystal 2 costs just over on $94.99 via online resellers such as Lightake! In fact the only thing we don’t like is the overly long name!

    What’s the CPU? The same lame ATM 7209? A dual core is even faster. Fail.

      Ye, ATM chipset. Biggest mistake by Ainol 😉
      Have a Hero II here and going to drop it out of my collection soon.
      Wanted to replace it with the Cube U30GT 2 but that is / will not be avalible in black to soon it seems. So first i switched to the Pipo M8 pro for about 215 dollar.

      DId wish there where some more tablets with a better resolution like in my Nexus 10 🙂

      Maybe Ainol sticks to ATM processors because ATM is the only microprocessor manufacturer that aids them on keeping kernel sources available…

    Why 1024×600? With such a screen resolution you don’t even need a Quad Core. I would’ve gone for it if the screen resolution was at least 1280×800. 🙁
