$100 NOVO7 Tablet Launched

Makes Kindle Fire look overpriced.

 

China-based MIPS Technologies has introduced a 7" tablet dubbed the NOVO7 at a dirt cheap price of $100 (approx Rs 5500). Interestingly, the tablet runs the latest version of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box.

The device is powered by a 1 GHz CPU paired with the Vivante GC860 GPU. The pixel dimensions of the display are not known at the moment, but the screen is capacitive and supports multi-touch gestures. The tablet sports two cameras, with the primary one featuring a 2 MP sensor. Connectivity is in the form of Wi-Fi, and while the tablet isn't equipped with inbuilt 3G, it supports external 3G devices - most likely implemented through USB dongles. The onboard storage is 4 GB, while a microSD card slot enables memory expansion. The manufacturer has pegged the standby time at 30 hours, but hasn't been considerate enough to quote the battery capacity.

Although the NOVO7 costs $100, shipping and handling will jack the price up to $160 (approx Rs 8500). Still, if you can't resist purchasing one, you can place an order through the official site. Otherwise, wait until it hits the local grey market.
