World’s First Official ICS Tablet

World’s First Official ICS Tablet
By Alexander Udalov, December 26, 2011 @ 7:37pm


News from Engadget about the Ainol Novo 7 Basic (or Knight Paladin, in some Chinese retailers parlance) coming to the US for approximately $119 didn’t make much of a splash so far. At the least, it was no more a splash than the news about this strange, very Chinese slate being chosen as the first official Ice Cream Sandwich tablet endorsed by Google’s Andy Rubin, of all people. Obviously there’s no big rush to get this device as a holiday present or something. But even if it were, there’s no vendor on US soil to get it in time — it doesn’t matter if it was really endorsed by Google, or maybe it was just a joke.

The Ainol Novo 7 Basic by its specs does actually look like a joke. First, with the US 7″ tablet market dominated by the Nook Color, Kindle Fire, and Nook Tablet with their 1024×600 IPS-class LCD displays bringing in an abysmal 800 x 480 TFT LCD 7-incher is a recipe for failure. Especially when adding just $20 worth of 1024 x 600 display to this Ainol could bring the tablet into more or less comparable state for competition.

Ainol Novo7 Series

****New Info****

The below appears to be all wet. Here are a couple of links talking about the Novo7 Elf.

Here are the latest rumors. During January the Novo 7 line will be comprised of three models: The Novo 7 Aurora, Wizard and Super. The specs are still pretty murky but the Super replaces the Advanced and will have the same ARM processor, 1024X600 screen, Android 2.3.4 and come pre-rooted (a hackers delight).

The Aurora and Wizard will both have the MIPS processor, a 1024X600 screen and run ICS. What will happen to the Paladin (which I ordered, to be shipped Jan 5) is up for grabs. BTW, the Paladin has no camera or HDMI port and a screen of 800X480 but is small and only weighs 11.5oz.

Time will tell what really happens.

Regards - John
