Ainol Novo 7 Venus shares Nexus 7 characteristics

If you’re in the market for a new tablet device then we can tell you about the Ainol Novo 7 Venus that shares many Nexus 7 characteristics such as the Android Jelly Bean operating system and a quad-core processor. The Google Nexus 7 by Asus has been a massive hit but the Chinese Ainol Novo 7 Venus has plenty in common with it both internally and externally. However the Novo 7 Venus has a bargain price tag of only $139.90, making it extremely affordable.

It looks as though public approval for the Nexus 7 has been noted by other manufacturers that are coming up with similar offerings and we’ll run you through the specifications and features of the Ainol Novo 7 Venus. It has a 1.5GHz Atm7029 quad-core processor, GC 1000+ quad-core graphics, 7-inch IPS display with resolution of 1280 x 800, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

There’s also a 2-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, a 4000mAh battery, and it all runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, not quite 4.2 or the 4.2.1 of the Nexus 7 but not far off! The Ainol Novo 7 lacks Bluetooth and GPS too although it supports an external 3G dongle. Dimensions of the Novo 7 Venus are 186.2mm x 126.9mm x 10.8mm and it weighs 320g.

This tablet is available at the Ainol website here priced at $139.90, down from the usual price of $159. Of course for that price there do have to be some sacrifices and the shell of the Novo 7 Venus is plastic so it’s not exactly going to have a quality feel. Nevertheless it looks a decent enough tablet for an affordable price and remember it does have that quad-core processor and is already running Jelly Bean.

Could you be tempted to order this Novo 7 Venus tablet by Ainol or would you rather pay the extra to get the Google Nexus 7 instead? Let us know with your comments

    I have just ordered one from the website. Was planning to buy Nexus 7 but due to budget constraint, went for this one instead. I have yet to received it though.

      so how is your experience with it?

    Bought a firewire and a venus 7. Have run a hardware check using the ES task manager app and both are fitted with an Arm dual core processor running at about 1GHz for the FireWire & 1.2GHz for the venus7. Do not trust ainol advertising. The wifi is useless. My wife has gone back to using her Galaxy S2 to access the internet as the WiFi on that works fine. Do not buy as Ainol along with many Chinese tablet makers have false advertising. Buy from Europe or the USA where you have rights against false adverts.
