    First of all im nooby regarding android OC... currently i have ipod touch 4g and im really impressed with it. kinda love the apple because there are no choices to choose from :) however they dont have 7" tablet.


    Kindle is a promising device with lot of reviews on the youtube from USA.. --
    However, novo 7 !! reviews are almost unboxing and not detailed reviews from Chinese vendors who are tying to market the tablet...

    so im put on the table what i care about and not in the tablets!

    can you provide me with advice? or there are any other better tablets with the 200$ range?
    i care abouti dont care about
    the performance of the device..
    multi task + speed + laggesh ... etc i guess the capability
    of ram and speed.the specs of novo 7 elf is better on paper but when talking about Chinese
    products.. im not sure that their 1 gig ram is better than the 512 gig ram of kindle or even worse !!
    . same for the processor speed.. -not trying to be offensive here... but this is my perception.
    price
    as long as its under 200$
    battery life.
    im not a big fan of vendors saying that the device stay for 8 hours while in reality
    some products cant go beyond 2-3 hours of web browsing with little youtube videos
    capacity
    8 gig is more than enough for me
    Speakers : particularly Sound of youtube
    not the mp3 nor applications..
    HDMI output
    because i have my pc connected to 32" HD screen
    Screen resistance
    i mean how easy to swap between screens ,pics, web scrolling ...

    If PDF is a requirement I recommend you look for, at least, an eight inch screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. Anything less will be a disappointment.

    If you like "golden cage" a la Apple, then choose Fire. Amazon concept regarding android is is pretty similar than Apple's with iOS. Every bit of the expirience is dictated by Amazon. Regarding PDFs and Pulse. If they are available in Amazon Appstore For Android, you can install and run them.

    If you are computer savvy and you don't mind tipping your toes in to unknown waters, then choosing chinese made android firmware on top of smallish manufacturer is your ticket. Regarding PDFs and Pulse. You most propably need to hack Ainol and install Android Market and Amazon Appstore For Android by yourself (with help of community like AndroidTablets) before you can install anything additional. About Elf. I you go this route choose Aurora (similar IPS screen than in Fire) for better reading experience.

    Depending on, where you live & where you order, there might be packaging, shipping, customs and VAT costs pushing the overall price over 200 bucks. After sale support might also be very different experience.

    That said, I chose off road adventure (Ainol Novo7 Aurora) instead of pre-paved path fully aware that I might get more than I bargained for ...

    If you are gonna get a new Ainol...look at the Novo 7 Aurora. Best screen (IPS and 1024) 1.5 mHz. About the same price the Novo 7A was about 2 months ago...oh yea.. its got ICS and from what I've read it is really stable.

    Propably 1Ghz dual-core is faster than 1,5Ghz single core. In fact, current ainol firmware runs at 1Ghz, not at the maximum 1,5Ghz stated in marketing material.

    Typically more memory is better.

    Regarding other stuff you mentioned. Amazon is multi billion dollar company and I assume that they have more R&D money to "polish" user experience whether it is battery life or look and feel of the screen. Fire has also been longer in market place, so I bet the firmware is more stable.

    You are right about the Fire. But if you go that route, where's the fun?

    Exactly and it does not have sd-card slot, etc. Amazon also wants you to get content just from them and in that sense is less open than chinese HW manufacturer.
