I got mine here (note it is the Advanced version with a more supported processor and better screen than the basic, although the basic has Honeycomb now): http://www.merimobiles.com/Ainol_NOVO_7 ... ri0723.htm

Discussions on the tablet can be found:
http://www.mp4nation.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=4
http://www.slatedroid.com/forum/258-ain ... -advanced/

Pros:
- cheap!
- Ainol is as reputable a brand as you will get with chinese tablets
- can be rooted, firmwares are available to upgrade it, see slatedroid
- plays 1080p mkv no problem
- hdmi out
- processor comes at 1ghz and plays everything well
- expandable via microsd
- good viewing angle
- amazing battery life
- supports certain usb 3g dongles

Cons:
- older revisions have weak wifi - you need to confirm with the seller if it is a new or old revision, and even then they may not know. You can manually mod/replace the antenna, but it is best to hope for a new revision. If new firmware fixes this, I will update the post. Currently it is still an issue with 1.7x firmware
- no bluetooth
- screen resolution 800x480
- currently unable to access all market offerings even after modifying build.prop - see slatedroid for info
- tilt sensor/gyrometer do not seem to properly determine the direction the tablet is held in for gaming/apps. Ie. the asus transformer ice cube wallpaper malfunctions as it thinks it is sideways. The screen does, however, properly change when the tablet is tilted
- weird vibration noise
- not easy to find cases that fit this specifically, although dimensions are similar to Galaxy Tab 7 - discussion on slatedroid

now, something like this is what's required to take on apple. How long has it taken a knockoff to finally figure it out. Provide a good product at a great price. People buy apple, imho, because (they're drones) and because you know you will get a quality product. But you pay for it. Brother, do you pay.

I'm not talking about competing with an Ipad, but an Ipod touch. This thing looks like it's a hands down winner compared to the touch. Yes, size is dramatically different, but if I see all these kids with games, surfing and texting, it looks like the touch isn't used so much as a music player. Seems like a great product.

Anyways, does anyone know who makes this? Is it similar in form factor to the playbook? Just trying to figure the components used.

Amazing tablet, but be sure to ask if it is the new revision with a better wifi antenna and the new firmware installed - the old antenna results in really poor wifi signal/reception.

Hi Avenger: Sorry to bug u, but could u tell me what is the battery life for just regular wifi internet browsing ?

Thanks :)

One of the big reasons I got an iPad over all the cheap alternate tablets was the battery life. Also these tablets are running unsupported versions of Android phone OS's, why no tablet OS?

Right... definitely not because of the fact that getting IPAD makes you hip and cool.

The tablet OS hasn't been made open source yet. I believe ICS (Android 4.0) is supposed to be for tablets and phones, and will be made open source.
