Quad-core Ainol Novo 7 Venus spotted, sells for Php10k

OF all the new devices we spotted this evening at SM Cyberzone, one of the most tempting one would be this 7-inch Ainol Novo 7 Venus tablet that runs on Jellybean and a quad-core processor.

We’ve tried and review the previous Ainol Paladin and Aurora so we know the tablet line is pretty solid and really affordable.

Ainol Novo 7 Venus specs:
7-inch IPS LCD 720p HD display @ 1280×800 pixels
ATM7029 ARM Cortex A9 1.5GHz quad-core
16GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2MP rear camera
0.3MP front-facing camera
Li-IOn 4,000mAh battery
Android 4.1 Jellybean
186.2mm x 126.9mm x 10.8mm (dimensions)
320 grams (weight)

Most of the core specs are at par with the Nexus 7 but the design is actually pretty close. The unit that we saw was the only one that’s being sold and we don’t think it’s an official local release.

Nevertheless, even at a jacked up price of Php10,000 for this device (regular price in the US is $159) the Novo 7 Venus seems pretty tempting.

    Saw this awhile back on an international blog. Can’t wait for local sellers to start importing this :)

    The Bitbotz Quad core Tablet just at 9999 has better specs, will be coming by next week.

    battery is a whooping 8000MHZ

    Yeah! The Bitbotz is the better buy. Even at 10k, the Ainol is actually overpriced.

    I’m sorry but when you pay for something this cheap then you will surely get what you pay for. Poor build quality. Unstable OS. Non-upgradeable OS. Lags. Hangs. Randoom reboots. Poor battery life. Warranty hassles. Poor after sales support and service.

    @IVAN, a lesson learned :(. tinamaan ako sa lahat ng consequences of buying chepo tablet. What a waste of money after all.

      In deed apollo. Last Dec me and my officemate bought tablets. I choose Ipad 3 and he chooses Ainol fire. Now his tablet sira na agad ung gyro sensor. He told me that he wont buy anymore cheap products. You get what you pay for ika nga.

    @Ivan, @Apollo

    I bought an Ainol Fire around September last year. I was really impressed with it’s build quality and the screen. I’m still using it right now, and still happy with it. And my Fire gets a head turn among sammy’s plasticky-7″-tabs crowd. it really doesn’t look cheap, it screams premium! :)
    on the hardware/software side, no lags, no hangs, no ramdom reboots, battery life is pretty decent. big-bang-for-my-buck! :)

    Got this tab.actually its only 1.2ghz quad CPU and vivante dual GPU.nenamark 2 scores only 35.5 fps. Antutu score max is 12388 only after lots of tweaking with pimpmyrom and swapping internal with external SD. Advantage is its able to read external hard drive, tested with 500gb. Otg keyboard and mouse works. Can play to TV via HDMI. The 7inch screen is 160dpi. no need to root cause its already rooted. Disadvantage is one must tweak it to make it stable.3d games could have been faster if it used a mali 400 quad GPU. No bluetooth, no gps and lacks lots of sensors. I also got a ramosw30 which has more responsive display and higher antutu benchmark score of 15044 and nenamar 2 score of 55.8fps.

    • Freeje says:

      How’d you get to tweak it so it’s stable? What firmware are you using? Have you tired connecting multiple devices susch as keyboard and mouse at the same time using a USB hub?
