Ainol are back with a new quad-core Android tablet named the Ainol Novo 8 Dream F1, which while a little long in the name department makes for a great alternative to the hundreds of iPad mini clones on sale.
If you are in the market for an easy to handle Chinese Android tablet, you have more than likely had a good look at all the great looking iPad mini clones which are flooding the market. While many of these clones do look great, it is sometimes nice to go for something different like this Ainol model.
As many of you will be quick to point out, the Novo 8 Dream F1 still looks remarkably similar to Apples tiny tablet, however the bezels are much thicker on the edges and overall screen size is more generous at 8-inches.
Under the body there is a Actions ATM029 ARM A9 1.5Ghz Quad-core processor, a Vivante GC1000 GPC, 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM. There is also room for up to a 32GB SD card and built-in mini USB ports, Mini HDMI and a 3.5mm head phone jack.
Pricing is on par with the current range of iPad mini clones to at just $150! Out only gripe is that it comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as standard, however a 4.2 update is in the works.
