It is Ainol Electronics, a Chinese company, that manufactures the Novo 7 series of Android tablet computers. Since the size of the screen of these tablet computers is 7 inches, the company has given the name of Novo 7 to these series of computers. It was in June 2012 that the company brought out Ainol Novo 7 Tornados. Let us into look into some of the features of these tablets.
Prior to Ainol Novo 7 Tornados, the company manufactured Novo 7 Paladin, which was the world’s first Android 4.0 tablet. The company released it in the latter half of 2011. But, as far as the Ainol Novo 7 series are concerned, the first to be manufactured were Novo 7 Basic and Novo 7 Advanced and the company released them during the early part of 2011.

You may wonder if there are any differences between Novo 7 Tornados and the other Ainol Novo tablets. The basic difference is in the speed of the Central Processing Unit or CPU. There is a difference in the screen resolution also. The common features in all the three tablets are that the processors on all the three are ARM processors, the internal storage is the same and all the three tablets have 7 inch screens. But, if you see the difference in the screen resolutions, Tornado comes with an 800×480 pixel screen and Mars with a 1024×600 pixel screen. Tornado and Mars have 1GHz single-core processors but Elf 2 comes with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. But, the screen of Elf 2 is 1024×600 pixel screen, which is the same as that of Mars.
