    We just received our first Novo7 Crystal today, heres our initial impressions:

    The specs:

    Power DeviceAC Adapter
    Appearance
    ColorBlack/White
    Dimensions189.3 x 120.93 x 11.2mm
    Net Weight328g
    Aditional Info
    Ports1 x DC In
    1 x Micro SD Card Slot
    1 x Earphone Jack
    1 x HDMI Mini Slot
    1 x Mini USB (Type B)
    What's in the box1 x Tablet PC
    1 x AC Charger (seperate)
    1 x Mini USB Cable (Type B)
    1 x OTG Cable (Mini Type B)
    1 x User Manual
    1 x Earphone



    The tablet looks great as well, in stylish white casing and black screen and screen surround. In comparison to the similarly sized and priced Cube U9GT4 the functionality is vastly improved and the tablet stands competitively against most of the 9.7inch tablets we have in stock; with HDMI output, 2.0mp camera and Jelly Bean 4.1.

    The box contents also impressed us against the U9GT4; you get everything you would expect, including the USB OTG cable and earphones, as well as a standard AC charger and jack on the tablet.

    We also think the relatively small in-built storage isn't a problem as you can easily stick in a 16GB SD. However, the tablet is let down by the lack of Bluetooth, also the one we have in store for testing seems to have a dodgy G-sensor where the home screen can only be viewed vertically. Surely this isn't an intentional modification Ainol have made to operating system? We can't see any advantage and it can be quite annoying.

    Still no iPlayer on 4.1 :(

Most importantly, they are in the same price range. Obviously, Ployer Momo7 is a much better choice.

    I guess this can be considered an upgrade of the Ainol Novo Paladin that I used to have with much better hardware this time.
