Anybody else notice the English motto on the ainol website?

"Enjoy life Enjoy ainol"

You missed this I presume then?

From the comments, it looks like the Ainol Novo 7 Paladin.
More or less the same price on pandawill.

The picture of the box indicates its the Paladin, which has a different processor (MIPS).

metalmonk said:
This uses the MIPS Xburst CPU. There are some reports of compatibility issues with apps as most are compiled for ARM CPUs.

"and there are question marks over the compatibility of the MIPS chipset with some Apps"


So if your not bothered by that and just want it for browsing, movies, pictures, it should be fine.. dead cheap

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)

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.
