The $100 Novo7 Android ICS tablet coming to US in a few months, but you get what you pay for
The ultra cheap tablet ICS tablet will come on sale in the US in the following months, but the specs are not exactly inspiring. Still, about a Benjamin gets you 8" or 9" screen with unfortunately WVGA resolution, which even high-end smartphones shun nowadays, 1GHz MIPS chipset with separate graphics processor and Adobe Flash support, as well as 2MP camera on the back plus a front-facer. Hey, at least the screen is capacitive, unlike some others we've reviewed.
There is an HDMI port, as well as 8GB of internal memory and microSD slot to store the media you might like to stream via HDMI. Some tradeoffs were made with the software as well - despite Andy Rubin's delight about the Novo7's affordable Android approach, the slate makes you manually enter your Google profile and create your contacts. Data Viz's Docs To Go suite will be present for your Microsoft Office document needs.
The unit on display at CES is fairly thin and light at 0.78 pounds and 0.48" thickness, but the white plastic back is said to be of the creaking type, and, overall, for this price, your Novo7 is not going to win any design awards.
