Ainol AX1 Rice 7-inch tablet is a great Xiaomi tablet replacement!


Last week we took part in the launch of the Xiaomi Mi3 and Xiaomi TV, but sadly there was no Xiaomi tablet, but for those of you looking this 7-incher might be a good candidate.

The AX1 Rice is a 7-inch 1024 x 600 tablet, with built-in 3G support for WCDMA networks. The tablet also packs WIFI and GPS thanks to the quad-core MT8389 SoC, which is basically the tablet version of the popular MT6589T found in many Chinese phones.

Ainol have listed the dimensions of the AX1 as 120 x 191 x 8.5mm and a weight of 313g.

Other features included Bluetooth, 3000mAh battery, 2 mega-pixel front camera, 5 mega-pixel rear and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean which, from the press image, looks like it is running a ROM similar to Xiaomi’s MIUI.

Ainol will launch the 3G AX1 in China later this month at a very affordable 899 Yuan ($146).

    Can you tell more about the rom? Is it really MIUI?

      It looks like MIUI from the lock screen, I’m wondering if the recently launched MTK version of MIUI will support tablets like this?

        Hey Andi, do you have serious links pointing to this “MTK MIUI version”? Much appreciated!

    Got an Ainol Flame/Fire in Beijings gadget market down in Zhongguancun but can not vouch for it. OS is crappy, they run their own flavour of 4.x and updates are rare.
    I really would love a miui style update cycle.

    Rather get another brand tbh or the next nexus

    The battery is less compared to its 3g network support…..Needs 4500 mah minimum…
