Ainol has stopped making the current model of ELF and Aurora. The new ELF and Aurora model will be released in mid of April
Ainol’s NOVO 7 ELF and NOVO 7 Aurora tablets became very hot after NOVO 7 tablet won the 2nd place of “Best Tablet Award” on CES this year. However, in the last month it was very hard to get them from online stores due to the short supply of IPS screen on Aurora and high definition screen on ELF.
According to Chevy Wu, Ainol’s GM of International Business, Ainol has finally stopped the production of NOVO 7 ELF and NOVO 7 Aurora . “They will be replaced with upgraded models in mid of April”, Wu said, “Our engineering team is working on the new control board, and we are working with a new screen supplier”. Ainol’s ELF was found having dead pixel and a strip line problem. “The upgraded model will have a better quality high definition screen”. According to Wu, The prices for those upgraded model are not finalized yet, but they should be similar to the current ELF and Aurora .
