Ainol intros the affordable Novo 7 Crystal Android 4.1 tablet
The Chinese manufacturer Ainol Electronics will soon start selling a new slate PC, called Novo 7 Crystal. Apparently, the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of tablets (which also includes the Novo 7 Aurora II, Novo 7 Mars and Novo 7 Tornado models introduced earlier this year) is based on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and will carry a $120 price-tag.
According to Ainol, this portable device is powered by a second generation Amlogic 8726-M6 central processing unit that incorporates two Cortex-A9 cores running at 1.5GHz and the Mali-400 graphics card. Moreover, the Novo 7 Crystal sports a 7-inch capacitive IPS (In-Plane Switching) multi-touch display of 1024-by-600 pixels native resolution.
Beneath the panel, you can find 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 8GB of flash storage (expandable up to 32GB by using the built-in micro SD card reader slot). Users are reportedly further provided with one mini USB port, mini HDMI output, Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n connectivity and a 2MP front-facing camera for video conferencing.
Ainol’s new tablet measures 11.2mm (0.44-inch) at its thickest point and weighs 380grams with the integrated 3700mAh battery that has an autonomy period of up to 5 hours on a single charge.
