Having a Retina Display on a tablet is not a feature exclusive to the iPad or Samsung models now, since some other Asian companies have started applying such innovations. Ainol is one of them, with the pretty interesting Ainol Novo9 FireWire model, with a Retina Screen. And the other specs are not half bad, either!


Ainol Novo9 FireWire has a 9.7 inch Retina Display, with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, a quad core AllWinner A31 processor, with a PowerVR SGX 8 core GPU and 2 GB of RAM. Other specs include 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a huge battery, with a capacity of 10.000 mAh. The device also comes with two cameras, a 5 megapixel one at the back and a 0.3 megapixel one upfront, as well as HDMI, WiFi, WiFi Direct, G Sensor and Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.

The Ainol Novo9 is without a doubt a very interesting device, especially when you find out that the price is around $250. I should probably mention that the device supports playback for a lot of video formats, as well as audio ones and has a varied Ebook format support. Its viewing angles reach 179 degrees and the screen has 264 ppi.
