The Ainol Novo 7 Elf II is a little tablet with a long name. The 7 inch tablet features a relatively speedy 1.5 GHz dual core Amlogic AM8726-M6 ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage.
Other highlights include HDMI output, a CPU mode tool that lets you adjust the tablet for performance or power savings, Android 4.0 software and support for the Google Play Store.
On the other hand, this tablet has one of the worst screens I’ve seen on a 7 inch tablet. It’s an 800 x 480 pixel display with awful viewing angles. The screen also seems to scratch very easily. I’ve had a tablet sitting on my desk for a few weeks, but I’ve barely touched the thing — I haven’t even bothered to login to my Google account, and it already has some visible scratches.
At least the tablet does support multi-touch gestures including pinch-to-zoom.
I’m not sure I’d recommend spending money on this tablet. But you may not have to — because we’ve got two to giveaway for free, thanks to the folks at W2Comp, which sells the Ainol Novo 7 Elf II for $130.
This weekend we’re going to give away the model I already opened, so expect a lightly used device with a few scratches. The unopened model will be included in a future giveaway as part of the Liliputing 2012 Holiday Giveaway.
Inside the box you’ll find the tablet, a capacitive stylus, a USB charging and sync cable, and a small pouch that you can slip over the tablet to try and protect it from scratches.
