My comment happened during the week when articles about people taking a stand about not going were flooding the internet, and this was the second year I saw that happen.

I had no interest for much of the same reasons you did: it seems like an old-style convention showcasing new products based on outdated ideas.

The same reporters who might be receptive back in their offices in February will probably not get to it at CES.

But not having Apple, Google and Amazon at a tech show there is like having an auto show wthout Ford, GM, and Mercedes.

Because everybody knows that best way to enjoy the SuperBowl is to watch it on TV, fast forward through 90% of the game to watch the ads, and indulge in an edible spread rather than awful overpriced stadium food.

Going is a big compromise that only lets you brag about having been there.

This will be much more cost effective and technology will be working for you just fine.

One of the first U.S. resellers to begin carrying the Ainol Electronics Novo brand is a site called TabletSprint — and the Novo 10 Hero II introduced last week is available at TabletSprint for $239 — this new model offers some of the best specs on the market today of any 10-inch tablet priced under $300 – and features a Quad Core processor, 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a strong battery (8000 mAH), front and rear cameras, a MicroSD memory card slot (up to 32GB memory cards), Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, Google Play installed – with access to 400K+ Apps, a MicroUSB port for connection to printers and other electronic devices, HDMI – to view personal videos and to download movies and watch in full 1080p (HD) on to a large screen TV, WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet through a Micro-USB port, and an option for 3G/4G connection. It’s also a solid gaming device with its high resolution screen and motion gaming sensor. TabletSprint also conveniently offers a 10″ Compact Case with built-in Keyboard ($28) which easily transforms a tablet into a mini-laptop.

The Novo 7 Legend also launched in December, and may be considered the first quality “$100 TABLET” worth buying — featuring an IPS screen display (800×600), MicroSD storage, Android 4.1 O/S, Google Play, a MicroUSB port, and a processor good enough to handle 3D games — Plus WiFi, Ethernet and options for 3G/4G Connection.

Ainol Electronics is also expected to launch later this month a model similar to the Hero II – one that will offer a Quad Core processor and Liquid Crystal display (iPad Retina quality) for around $265 — the Novo Series should gain some notice at CES this year and seems off to a good start for 2013 with affordable tablets packed with the latest features.
