as it is shown in CES, low price & high quality,
February 05,2013 REVIEW of the product****************
heard the news about it from CES 2013, can not believe that it is for sell so quickly. water-resistance shell with 9.4" HD IPS screen, these features is alluring me. The web browse of it is very smooth and the page loading in an extreme short time. especially the standby time of the actions new quad core processor. This might be the most long stand by time quad core tablet.
Mali400,designed and made by AMR,is the very best graphic processor chip in the same level of GPUs so far ever. It's most optimized and most compatible,so it has higher performance than all others. This means just only one single Mali400 GPU can handle most big 3D games. ACT-ATM7029 further adopts Quad Core Mali400. With 4 Mali400 GPU running at the same time,all Apps ,even the big 3D games,are running ultra-smooth.
Spot 5: Dual Cameras
Ainol NOVO 7 Venus has both front facing and rear facing HD cameras. The front camera is 0.3MP, the back camera is 2MP, not impressive comparing with the camera on NOVO 7 Flame. You can use them to shoot photo, record video, and conduct teleconference. You can switch between front and rear camera in apps. Skype is supported. T-ATM7029 runs at up to 1.5GHz. .. ACT-ATM7029 is made in advanced 40nm LP which is about 2X faster and consumes about 1/2 power than other CPUs made by 65nm process technology. The performance of this quad-core should be close to the quad-core CPU used in Apple iPad 3.It features USB 3.0 interface which targets ultra-fast data transition and HDMI 1.4A which targets 1080P output. So you can play video or games on big screen.
