TheCrystalwill boast some impressive internals including a dual-core Cortex A9 chip with Mali 400 GPU, front facing camera, 7" IPS display, 8GB of internal memory and 1GB of RAM. It will also sport an HDMI port, USB, Wifi and microSD card slot for extra 32 gigs of memory. The 3700mAh battery is claimed to provide a 5 hours of non-stop usage just a bit short of what the Nexus 7 provides.
Best thing about the Ainol Novo 7 Crystal is that it runs Jelly Bean OS right out of the box and provides full Vanilla experience that you would find on Google Nexus 7. It supports Google Play store, so that gives it an edge over the recently launched Kindle Fire HD.
The Crystalcomes with a price tag of $120-$130 depending on the where you buy it from making it the cheapest Jelly Bean tablet available in the market with a Dual-Core processor. It will start shipping from 28 September.
