NOVO7, World’s First Android ICS launched for less than $100 by MIPS. Potential Aakash Killer?
Novo 7 is a 7 inch tablet with much better specs compared to that of Aakash. It has a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen, will run on a 1GHz MIPS-Based XBurst CPU with a Vivante GC860 GPU and has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI, USB 2.0 and microSD features. It also has front and rear cameras of 2MP resolution each. The Novo 7 is also said to have 3G onboard. The tablet maker claims 7 hours of web browsing and six hours of gaming thanks to the low power sipping processor.
As for now, Nova 7 is now available in China but you can also order it online over here. The tablet is said to reach the US and other countries very soon. If you order Novo 7 online you will be charged $99 plus $60 for the shipping and handling, which takes the total cost of the tablet to $159 and somewhere a little less than Rs. 8300. So yes it is cheap indeed. There is also going to be an 8-inch and a 9-inch version that will be announced soon, so watch out for those as well.
