Ainol pushes rival to Samsung Galaxy Note

Popular Chinese manufacturer Ainol has unveiled a new phone tablet at the PC Show technology fair in Singapore and it does look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Note phablet.

According to Jacqueline Send from Cnet Asia, the device, which is simply called the Android comes with a mobile TV tuner, the ability to take on two SIM cards, a 2500mAh battery, a microUSB port, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with what looks like a HTC Sense UI clone and costs only around S$279, that's £140 or around a third of the price of the Galaxy Note.

The main difference is the screen size though with a 5in WVGA capacitive display (which is just what the Dell Streak offered back in 2010)) compared to the Galaxy Note's 5.3in, 1,280 x 800 pixels display. No details about whether it comes with a microSD card slot, the amount of onboard memory, onboard storage, the cameras (front and back), connectivity or availability.

Ainol (or Ainovo) is sold in in the UK by a number of sellers, most notably Futeko. The latter has already received stocks of the Ainol Novo 7 Elf 2 (for £120) and a source told us that the Ainol phablet is an interesting product.
