Chinese company “Ainol” have released Novo 7 — sub-$100 7″ tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and MIPS processor. This is quite big step aside from previous ARM-powered models, and the price speaks for itself. MIPS and ARM are different beasts, but Ainol have already got Google Compatibility Certificate and endorsement by Andy Rubin, so it looks like most Android software runs just fine on the new tablet.
Screen size is standard 800×480, capacitive touch screen, HDMI output and everything else is just as expected.
I’ve already ordered one on ebay for ¥11,320 JPY (including delivery), and hope to get it before holidays.
