One Android tablet maker making strides to offer quality Android tablets at competitive prices is Ainol Electronics – which has previously won runner-up for “Best Tablet of the Year” at CES, and for 2013 has introduced the Novo Quad Core Series of Android tablets– including the Novo 7 Venus — with one reseller – a site called TabletSprint offering this new model for $149 USD —
The Novo 7 Venus compares and to the Nexus 7 seven inch tablet but for considerably less – matching key features, including a Quad Core processor, a high resolution multi-touch 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a front camera, Android O/S and Google Play Store preinstalled — while also offering a number of features the Nexus 7 doesn’t – including a 2-megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, an HDMI 1080p port to download and watch movies directly from a tablet on a large screen TV and also project & play video games on to a big screen; plus more ways to connect to the internet, including Ethernet as well as 3G/4G Wireless connection through its USB port with a 3G/4G USB adapter.
The Novo Hero II has also just launched – a full size, 10 inch Android tablet that packs in most of the same features, including a quad core processor and 1280×800 IPS screen, and innovative features, including 4K HDMI Digital Output – Plus 32GB memory and a strong 8,000 mAh battery — all for less than $250 at TabletSprint.
Offering some of the most impressive features is the newly released Novo 9 Spark – which features a Quad Core processor along with a brilliant 9.7 inch 2048×1536 (Retina) screen – with a powerful 10,000 mAh battery, 4K Digital HDMI, and a 5 Megapixel Rear Camera with AF and Flash for about $269 USD and also available through TabletSprint.
It should be interesting to see how the new Novo Quad Core Series fares in 2013 as this company gains more presence in the tablet market.
