Little known Chinese tech manufacturer Ainovo out the world's first Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet in the form of the 7-inch Ainovo NOVO7

 

The world's first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet has gone on sale with Chinese manufacturer Ainovo taking the honours with a budget 7-inch offering, the Ainovo NOVO7.

With the Motorola Xoom 2 expected to be the first ICS tab prior to its somewhat disappointing unveiling, speculation and anticipation has been rife for a number of weeks around which high profile manufacturer would get the nod to release the first tablet sporting the latest Google mobile OS offering.

Ainovo NOVO7 Specs

Asides from joining the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in the now two strong contingent of Ice Cream Sandwich outing devices the entry level Ainovo NOVO7 features specs which punch far beyond its minimalist £60 price tag.

Boasting 4GB of internal storage and a MIPS-based 1GHz processor the NOVO7 touts front and rear mounted 2-megapixel cameras alongside a touted seven hour battery life whilst browsing the web.

Despite coming firmly out of left field to land as the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, Ainovo is claiming to have the full support of Google and the company's head of Android, Andy Rubin.

 "I'm thrilled to see the entrance of MIPS-Based Android 4.0 tablets into the market," the Ainovo press release quotes the Google leader as saying.

"Low cost, high performance tablets are a big win for mobile consumers and a strong illustration of how Android's openness drives innovation and competition for the benefit of consumers around the world."

Whilst the Ainovo NOVO7 is only available in China we expect an influx of UK bound ICS tablets at CES 2012, what tablets would you like to see land with the new Google OS? Let us know via the comments box below.
