    A much better deal with so much better features is the new Novo 7 Venus – which became available last week for $149 at a site called TabletSprint —

    The Novo 7 Venus compares to the Nexus 7 tablet but for considerably less – matching key features, including a Quad Core processor, a high resolution multi-touch 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a front camera, Android O/S and Google Play Store preinstalled — while also offering a number of features the Nexus 7 doesn’t – including a 2-megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, an HDMI 1080p port to download and watch movies directly from a tablet on to a large screen TV and also project & play video games on to a big screen; plus more ways to connect to the internet, including Ethernet as well as 3G/4G Wireless connection through its USB port with a 3G/4G USB adapter.

    The manufacturer – Ainol Electronics – also won runner-up for "Best Tablet of the Year" at CES 2012 which is pretty impressive — TabletSprint also adds in $25 in Bonus Apps
