A first-of-its-kind tablet with Google’s Android 4.0 priced under US$100 is now available in China, and will reach other countries soon, according to companies that helped build the device.
Ainol’s Novo7 tablet has a 7-inch capacitive screen and runs on a 1GHz single-core MIPS processor, said MIPS Technologies and chip-maker Ingenic in a joint press release. The tablet’s battery lasts eight hours on watching video, seven hours when browsing the Web and six hours when playing games.
