Chinese tablet manufacturer has come up with the rather nobly named Ainol Novo 10 Hero II, where this 10” Android tablet will feature an IPS display at 1,280 x 800 pixels, running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the operating system of choice. That is not all though, as the main selling point of the Ainol Novo 10 Hero II would most probably be its quad-core processor underneath the hood, retailing for just $240 a pop.
The Ainol Novo 10 Hero II will be powered by a 1.5 GHz Actions Semiconductor ATM7029 quad-core processor alongside a ARM Mali 400 graphics chipset, making it ideal for those who want to jump aboard the Android bandwagon, and yet do not want to fork out a premium for it. I guess we will only know just how well the Ainol Novo 10 Hero II performs should we finally be able to get our hands on a unit, and run actual performance tests on it. Still, that kind of hardware processing power with one of the more recent Android operating system versions with such a screen size, and yet being more than $100 more affordable than an iPad mini, makes it quite the tempting purchase, does it not?
