Ainol Novo 7 Aurora II dual core tablet launching late June or early July [Update]


That’s a big name but with such high-end specs at such a low price, it’s worth it. The tablet is the second device in its series following up from the Aurora I which isn’t as fast as the Aurora II (Obviously!) as the Aurora I features a MIPS processor which was so weak that some apps refused to run on the device. Although at $110, that’s exactly what you’d expect.

However, the Aurora II packs some really good specs. It runs 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel IPS display, a 1.5 GHz Amlogic ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It also runs on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen. The tablet will have a 2MP front-facing camera, a G-Sensor, 802.11 nWiFi, and microSD card slot. Ainol Novo have released a number of tablets since the Aurora I but this beats any previous release.

Notebook Italia report that the tablet will go on sale for $190 which is lower than any device with similar specs.Ainol will also have another tablet ready for release along with the Aurora II called the Elf II which will have most of the features mentioned about except for the IPS display.

Update: According to a press release issued yesterday by UPlaytablet, Ainol’s  new model of NOVO 7 ELF and NOVO 7 Aurora, aka Aurora II and ELF II, is pushed out to end of June or beginning of July. Read all the details in the press release below.
