Might be you are not familiars with Ainol device, but if you are on the market for 7 inch inexpensive tablet, we think you should also consider to buy Ainol Novo705KC-E1-AX3 3G tablet. Yeah, this is not from well know brand, but with new quad core processor from MediaTek company and most popular Android Jelly Bean for operating system, the Novo705KC-E1-AX3 7 inch tablet is still a great alternative for sub-$150 tablet, especially if you are not too concern about brand.
Ainol Novo705KC-E1-AX3 Performance
Powered by MediaTek MTK 8382 Quad Core processor with speed of 1.2GHZ, Novo705KC-E1-AX3 provides more than enough power for rich internet browsing, watch video or playing Android games. The 1GB of DDR3 RAM also promises user smooth and seamless multitasking performance, even for modern Android applications. Like common modern tablet from other brand, new Ainol Novo 7 inch tablet also preinstalled with the Google Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as the operating system. No word on the OTA update, but like common Ainol’s tablet, we think the Novo705KC’s user also will get latest version of Android OS in the future.
Similar to the IdeaTab A1000L 59385956 tablet from Lenovo, Ainol Novo705KC-E1-AX3 also comes with a 7 inch capacitive Touch Screen display and using IPS technology. Yeah, with only support a 1024 x 600 native resolution, this tablet is not designed for playing modern Android 3D games or watch 108p HD video playback. But for casual Android games and video streaming, the device still provides fairly bright and crisp color. Under the hood, the 8GB of NAND Flash card as internal storage that backed by microSD card slot promises plenty of storage space.
The sub-$150 7 inch tablet comes with a plastic casing. The white front side with silver design on the back cover provides stylish and premium designs like other tablet from well known brand. In term of size, the 286 gram tablet which has dimension in 189 x 108 x 9.0 mm is slightly thinner than most 7 inch Android tablet on its class, and we believe the Ainol’s still comfortable to hold in one hand and perfect for travel companion. For comparison, the 340 gram Lenovo IdeaTab tablet has dimension in 199.0 x 121.0 x 11.5 mm. Inside, the Lithium battery promises up to 7 hours of battery life or around at 3 hours for streaming video from YouTube or movies from Netflix.
Of course, the Ainol Novo705KC tablet also comes with dual camera. On the back side, the 2.0 megapixel rear camera with Flash can capture photos and video recording with ease, while the 0.3 megapixel front facing camera allows user to makes video chats with family wherever they go. For port interface and connectivity, the budget friendly tablet shipped with audio jack, micro USB 2.0 port, Bluetooth, T-Flash card slot, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n for wireless internet connection and SIM card slot that can operates on WCDMA 2100 and GSM 850/900/1800/1900 networks. Sadly, this device lacks micro HDMI port, so you can not watch or share your video with family in external HDTV.
Furthermore, the tablet also preinstalled with few useful software, such as iReader, Calculator, Browser and Android Market, along with GPS and G sensor. So, what do you think about the Ainol’s tablet? If you are not want to spend much money, Ainol Novo705KC-E1-AX3 7 inch tablet that has a starting price around at $134 is great choice and worth every penny. If you are on the market for Kids tablet, we recommend you to look at the $99 Ematic FunTab 2 FTCV201LB 7 inch tablet that shipped with 1.5GHZ quad core processor and offers three colorful silicone case.
