Ainol Novo 7 Aurora IPS Screen VS Ainol Novo 7 Elf

The big question is, what’s the difference between the Aurora and the Elf? Over at www.fastcardtech.com, the Aurora (8GB) is selling at $159 while the Elf (8GB) costs less at $139. What makes the Aurora slightly more expensive than the Elf?

Let’s look at their specs side-by-side:

Looks identical right? The only advantage the Aurora has over the Elf is its IPS display. What’s IPS display you ask? It’s a type of display that gives you a wider viewing angle so that you don’t need to prop or hold it at a specific angle just to get a good viewing experience. You would want this if you would be sharing your display with other people or you don’t want to hold it at a certain angle every time you’re watching a video. It’s the same type of feature as that of the iPad 2′s display.

Well there’s another minimal difference, the Aurora comes in a glossy finish while the Elf has the soft matte finish we saw on the Ainol Novo 7 Paladin. Other than that, they’re pretty much twins.

Both tablets use the ARM Cortex chipset so we can expect more compatibility with Android apps. If you see a 1.5GHz CPU on other websites, the Many Core A10 listed here can go up to 1.5GHz but is underclocked to 1.2GHz probably to save battery.

There you have it. Don’t pull your hairs trying to find out the difference between the two. It’s just the IPS display on the Aurora.

Amazing games palying show ! Do not miss it !
