Ainol Elf 7" Android Tab with Ice Cream Sandwich and 1024x600 TFT display. £117 delivered @ Futeko £116.99

peddpedd

I know that a lot of people have been waiting for Futeko to get these in, and now they're accepting pre-orders for stock due to arrive on March 5th. Full specs are at the link and I'm sure that the comments will cover most technical issues.

One thing worth mentioning is that the Ainol Aurora is not yet available at Futeko. The Aurora is the same device but a little thinner and having a better (IPS) screen. Not sure when they're expecting them in.

BTW - did search for this deal before posting, and couldn't believe nobody has it up here yet, but if this is a dupe, please delete.

Enjoy!

    I would just say be careful if you get a tablet with ICS. Maybe things are moving on but about 6 weeks ago I bought the Ainol Novo 7 with ICS and was pleased to pay less than £100. It went back the next day though, despite being a lovely little tablet, just because of the software. No Market, no Flash, an absolutely miniscule number of non-Chinese apps available. It may be fine if you are Joe Techno and can mod it in some way, or if you are prepared to wait until the Android folks get things sorted, but if you are like I was and just looking for a decent tablet for the kids to play games and watch youtube then you may be disappointed.

    The 'G' company (that cannot be mentioned on HUKD) are putting Android Market Place on their Ainol Elf's or (should that be Elves??) prior to shipping. My Futeko also do this?


    would that be the "gadget" company?

    anyone know if it's possible to scrub of the "ainol" wording from the frame of the device?


    Agreed - the wording ought to be on the rear for clarity

    Yep. That's the one.

    Aurora is far better than the elf and the advanced.

    Ainol. Yeah sounds odd and funny. But I am sure we would have felt the same when we heard 'toyota' for the first time. They are the worlds largest automobile manufacturer now, in case somebody is wondering.

    I bought my Elf from the UK company that cannot be named ( Why can't they be named ? !!! ) They had already installed the custom version of android 4 ics that included android market and the google apps. If Futeko are not doing the same , i would not advise you to buy it unless you are confident modding the device ( there are plenty of guides though and its pretty easy)

    I have installed android 2.3 on mine, and it runs extremely fast. Android 4 ICS is still being developed - it looks good , but at the moment there are still bugs and anomolies that crop up. The main thing i didn't like was the fact the task bar never dissappears - so when playing games its easy to press the home button ( jumping you out of the game), plus its taking up screen space.

    On android 2.3 it runs faster, has better battery life and flash works ( along with more apps than on ICS ).
    When connected to your TV via the included HDMI cable , you can even play full 1080p videos ( when you play a 1080p film the tablet screen goes blank -whilst it plays full 1920x1080 resolution on your TV ). If you are doing other things on the tablet ( browsing, playing games etc) the TV and tablet shows the same image. You can even connect a USB wireless keyboard/mouse and browse the internet from your armchair using the tablet .

    Its still early days for this tablet, but its in high demand and there will be lots of tweaks and modifications to make it better ( due to its popularity).
    Take a look on slatedroid for more information and for modified firmware:

    ICS is still a bit buggy, thus why most of the major builders aren't including it. The Chinese manufacturers don't mind shipping with a few bugs :-)

    Very nice piece of kit. Decent processor, and the power to play any video imaginable - not only 1080p, it can play 2160p! (which is the next gen "quad HD", ie 4x the pixels of 1080p).

    Expect a long wait if you order a Aurora from one of the Chinese suppliers. They have large back orders to fulfil before sending out new orders. The more trusted Chinese source even admit it on their sites ( and its unusual for these sites to be honest over stock levels ).

    Are all the cheapo chinese tablets 16:9 or do they do any decent 10" 4:3 tablets?

    I have one of these - its really great (and I use it more than my ipad1)
    Nice 1024x600 screen and ARM CPU so everything from the market works.

    Yes, I had to put market on myself, but its not too hard.



    As far as I know, it is MIPS rather than ARM based

    If you like the Ainol Specs. You might like to take a look at the Hyundai A7 on Focal price at £73.19

    Actually its a arm cortex A8 processor and it has a great GPU (Mail 400) similar to the GS2. I have the aurora and the only issue is the software, the developers are waiting for the ICS drivers for the GPU and then this baby should really fly!
