Here's another new 10 inch Android tablet released last week that truly impresses --
The Novo 10 Hero by Ainol Electronics -
priced at only $225 and available through a site called TabletSprint -- and is easily the best "price-performance" 10" tablet available; and features a High Resolution 1280x800 IPS screen, 16GB Memory, a strong Dual Core processor with Quad Core GPU, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Operating System, Wifi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, and an option for 3G/4G connection. If you're not familar with the manufacturer, Ainol Electronics, they received a "Best Tablet of the Year" award at CNET Consumer Electronics Show 2012 and have hit the ball out of the park with this new model. The Novo 10 Hero offers a MicroUSB port for connection to printers and other electronic devices, a MicroSD Memory Card slot for unlimited storage (up to 32GB Memory Cards), includes both front and back cameras with a 2 Megapixel rear camera; and has HDMI output, which is a nice feature to download movies and watch in Full 1080p (HD) on to a large screen TV. It also makes a great gaming device with its high resolution screen, motion sensor, and a processor strong enough to handle 3D games.
One of the first resellers to offer the new Novo 10 Hero is TabletSprint -- which also adds in $25 in Bonus Apps and accessories. TabletSprint also features a free monthly 3G/4G data plan for the Novo 10 Hero, with no charge for 500MB
Data every month... with full internet access and VoIP voice calling over a nationwide network. A free 4G USB adapter is included and the carrier only requires a small refundable deposit for wireless network USB adapter. TabletSprint certainly makes this a great deal and the Novo 10 Hero is worth comparing to other 10" tablets available this holiday season.
From a marketing viewpoint they have totally missed it. People don't buy on specs, they mostly buy on buzz and excitement. Showing a screen with 12 tiny icons is not the way to wow us. Take a look at any Apple product shot and you will instantly see what buzz and visual excitement is all about.
