Default Ainol Novo 10 Hero & Novo 7 Fire 2

Ainol is releasing two new tablets, both of which have a quad-core variant.

Ainol Novo 10 Hero--> Dual Core CPU
Ainol Novo 10 Hero II
Ainol Novo 7 Fire II

Seem like good steals, considering the fact that they are running Quad-core CPU's.
PHONES : Moto SLVR L7--> Moto ROKR EM30--> Micromax Q7--> HTC Wildfire S--> Samsung Galaxy SIII--> LG G2 [AOSPA]
TABLETS : Kindle Fire--> Nexus 7--> Nexus 10 --> Surface Pro 2 [Windows 8.1]

Indeed!

The Novo 10 hero is dual core and will be released next week. Site is running a deal for Novo 10 Hero I now. The Novo 10 Hero II and Fire II (quad core) are still pre-order.

there are two reviews for the novo 10 hero for anyone interested:

My brother has an Ainol elf 3 (ha that name makes me giggle) and he likes it. I used it a bit and I was pleasantly surprised. However, the 7" there isn't much cheaper than a Nexus 7

Tablets:--

I think they are only dual-core, and not quad-core, aren't they?

Oh, I didn't see @honeycombflytouch3 post. That's nice there will be a quad core soon. I saw Woot had the Ainol Novo 10 on sale two days ago for $195. That seems about the lowest price.

Yeah, I didn't read everything thourally. I wonder if the quad core version will run faster than the Nexus 10.

I found a coupon code on one site (near the bottom) that brings the price down another $5 and there's free shipping.

Any more word on these? Been kicking around picking up the Novo 10 Captain when it comes out or waiting for the Novo 10 Flame with the IPS display. However, I've heard mixed reviews on the longevity of Ainol tablets and logic problems that come up after awhile. Anyone have any links to reviews or threads of how these things are holding up or know anyone that has an older 7" tablet?

One thing I do agree on is the 7" tablets are kinda meh unless you get one of the <$100 budget units. With the Nexus 7 at $199 it is kind of pointless to get a 7" Ainol IMHO. Where it might make sense would be the 10" variants. For $219 you get something that specs out in the same league as the Nexus 10, Infinity and Ipad 4 for half the price or less. Plus they all have SD card slots which, IMO, makes the Infinity win automatically out of the three mentioned American tablets although they're all made in China too... The Ipad is made in literally the same town in China as the Ainol tablets are.

Do not forget that these tablets use MediaTek SoC and they will hardly be able to achieve the same performance as Nexus 10 or other competitive products.

These tablets have fairly good support and the source of their OS is public. There are many devs that are working on them, you can see it by yourself on slatedroid.com forums.
