    Welcome to the Novo7 Forum! The first Ice Cream Sandwich Tablet!

    The Novo7, a 7-inch tablet available in China that runs Ice Cream Sandwich, is set to arrive in the United States in the coming months with an expected price of $99.
    The game-changing tablet could shake up the market just like the Kindle Fire did with its debut in November. The Novo7 doesnÂ’t skimp on specs and cut corners at every turn. It has a MIPS XBurst 1GHz CPU and includes front and rear cameras, 3D capability, 1080p video decoding and an HDMI port, not to mention up to 8 hours of battery life while watching video. It also features a multitouch-capable touchscreen and the latest version of Android, where other inexpensive tablets have been known to run older versions.

    Currently offered in China from Ainol Electronics, the tablet is expected to be available in North America from brand names including Leader International and OMG Electronics.
    Another indication of the Novo7's seriousness is the fact that it has been certified by Google. In fact, the Novo7 is tantamount to Google and MIPS firing a shot across the bow of their respective competitors, most specifically Amazon and ARM.

    It's possible to get a Novo7 from Asia right now for about $50 in shipping costs, provided you can find a site that isn't sold out of them.

    If they could release this tablet for sub $200 in the states, it would sell like hotcakes!

    I would be all over those.

    Too bad we can't get our hands on one of those from China.

    I thought it was suposed to have 4.0 on it... or at least get an update to 4.0. That looks like the 2.x lock screen.

    Yeah, just got it today. DHL tracking said it went to japan instead of the us. But i guess it got here some how. Havent had much time to test/play with it much. Google talk is not working. Screen resolution is not that great. Ocasional lag when typing in the browser. Im downloading a leaked update to 4.0 to mess with that. Probaly wont update right away, need to get my barrings first. There are a lot of preloaded chinese apps. So far I think it is worth the $130 i spent on it. MUCH better than my sytab10st (same cost)

    Edit: one corner keeps popping if i push on it. Sounds like dubble sided tape not staying stuck.

    I bought my daughter a cheap $100 China tablet for xmas. It's been awful - the Market wasn't the US version, the 3G would never stop scanning for network (there was supposed to be a firmware update to fix that, but there's not yet) which leaves the battery working for maybe 1/2hr before it has to be plugged back in, etc. There's a great custom ROM being developed for it right now, but in the meantime she has a piece of junk. Once it's done the thing would probably be ok, but now that there's this, I'd rather get it.

    I'd like to send it back and get this one, but I wonder

    1. does it play Flash? I saw one site that said it does, and another that said it doesn't.
    2. If I buy one from China today, can it get the US official Android market? The one I have is China's official app market, (tried changing locations and keyboards, etc, but no dice) and will not DL apps. I had to side-load some and get the rest from Amazon app store. Can this one be switched over?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    The site I ordered from said it would ship with android 4.0 but it came with 3.2.
    Flash came preloaded.
    It has 3 or 4 markets on it. One of which is the real market.
    Battery life seems decent. When I opened the box it was 80% and I was using it for about 3 hrs and it dropped to 40%.
    It has a little trouble booting up so far 2 out of 6 reboots froze and I had to use the reset button. But after it starts up I haven't had any problems with it besides the google talk app wont start up.

    Hmmm...texting with Google talk is one of the things she does most with the one she has now.

    I may go for it anyway and start searching for a fix during shipping time...hard to decide.

    Anyway,
    Thanks for the info! Much appreciated!
