Just got an email from focalprice with this tablet on offer, anyone know whether its worth buying? Its another ainol!
From the comments, it looks like the Ainol Novo 7 Paladin.
More or less the same price on pandawill.
works out at about 80 euro delivered on focal price.
The picture of the box indicates its the Paladin, which has a different processor (MIPS).
So if your not bothered by that and just want it for browsing, movies, pictures, it should be fine.. dead cheap
Make sure to use code RMN10D with Focalprice for 10% discount. Brings price to just over 74 Euro.
will they work with a broadband dongle?
Hi can anyone advise me, I am looking for a tablet that can take my 3g dongle as I've got no wifi. I am looking at this one, any Opinions please? or does anyone have one. thanks
I don't think so. The dongles are usually designed for windows, not Android. You could, if you have a laptop, set up internet connection sharing, and that should work to get internet onto the tablet but it defeats the tablets portability really
Just to point out, all the Ainols, indeed, most of the Chinese Android slabs, like the Herotab etc.. have a plug and surf 3G compatibility with a very very limited selection of Huawei (China) stick modems, along with one or two ZTE (China) stick modems.
The Huawei E173 is often mentioned. I don't have a specific list handy, but 3G dongle use is mentioned, in relation to the Paladin.
I don't think there's any compatibility with recent HSPA+ hardware, you're dealing more with fairly long in the tooth stick modems, that have been available for a good while.
You're also going to have a better chance of the stick being recognised, if it is using 'run of the mill' Huawei firmware, not something locked down or modified heavily by the likes of O2 or Vodafone.
Just to show: Discussion of 3G use on an Ainol 7 Advanced. There's also threads for Novo 8 and Paladin. A Spanish review mentions 3G use on the Paladin. (YouTube)
My order is 'on hold', with Pandawill.. bah.
That code didn't work but I went ahead and ordered anyway. Worked out at 83 delivered via paypal.
Now let's hope I don't get caught for customs.
Used code yesterday and worked for me. Perhaps finished although worth googling to see if any other codes available
Probably was for January.
It's ordered now though and paid via paypal so I doubt I could start again without too much hassle.
do these tablets have to be ordered from china to get a bargain price?
is free delivery ok from these places?
Well you might get caught for customs charges.
