Ainol site is showing 2 new models:

Mars and Tornados

It seems Mars use processor Amlogic 8726 M3 and Tornados uses Amlogic 8726 M3L.

Other specs seems similar to those of previous Novo 7 models (resolution, ports, ICS 4.03).

You can see more info at Ainol site (third option in the title bar).

Good luck !

I just ordered a Mars for the screen resolution 1024*600. The m3 processor is a single core. The m6 is the dual core.

I will as soon as I can get my hands on it.
Well, I got it today and I can say that I'm not too impressed with it. The touch screen is terrible, it barely responds. I almost have to put my entire thumb on it to register half the time. Lots of software issues. Display is ok, but the second you turn to look at an angle you lose most of the visual.
Feels like a good quality build, very solid. It showed up with the chinese software installed. Not sure if I can flash with English OS for other Ainol models.
Camera is too be expected. It basically just serves as a pathetic visual recorder.


The worst is yet to come....It drops wifi connection constantly. Absolutely brutal. Completely unacceptable for any standard tablet. Skype does work and so does netflix, but with the dropping of wifi signal both are totally useless.
Browser speeds are relatively slow (firefox, opera).

The display looks a lot nicer than the tornado's.

Hopefull there will be some firmware updates soon to fix the wifi problem and touch screen.

I did an update and touch screen seems a bit more responsive. Gameloft games will load on it now. Still dropping wifi connection, but not as often.
Update for Netflix.... It works but the resolution is not the greatest. It pixilates and isn't quite as clear as it should be.
Browser speeds seem better.

2 new model have weaker hardware than Aurora eventhough they have Cortex A9 CPU, which 20% faster than Cortex A8. But AMlogic's CPU design make their CPU weaker.

Amlogic AML8726 – Built in 65nm process, ARM A9 architecture, 800mHz main frequency, 128k L2 cache, Mali 400 GPU of 250MHz, supports 1080P decoding.

Allwinner A10 – Built-in 55nm process, ARM A8 architecture, 1.5GHz (currently 1.2GHz tested) main frequency, 512k L2 cache, Mali 400 GPU of 300MHz, supports full formats 2160P decoding.


Allwinner A10 win in every test.

I just got my Tornado and I'm pretty happy with it. (Maybe because my Novo7 Advanced had so many problems.)

Build quality seems much better than my Novo7 Advanced. But on the Tornado I notice that when I touch the screen there is a little distortion where the speaker is -- I think the speaker is to close to the screen. I do like the brushed black metal face around the screen.

System info shows the CPU is running 1.0GHz and it seems pretty responsive. My Advanced crashes about every 3 to 4 hours. The Tornado is running ICS and I've been playing with it for about 2 days with no crashes at all. WiFi range seems about the same as the Advanced but the Advanced WiFi wouldn't turn on after sleep while the Tornado works fine after sleep.

Overall for a $95 tablet it seems like a great deal. (As a side note, I got mine from SpeMall and they have been great.)
