Ainol 7 Paladin has been known as one of the cheapest ICS tablet at Widget City. But if you feel that the specifications of the Ainol 7 Paladin is still lacking and needs some improvement then I think that the Ainol 7 Elf is the one for you.  Why?, because this tablet has a better resolution and a faster processor compared to the Paladin. Luckily, Widget City is now offering the Ainol 7 Elf.  So what’s inside the tablet?. Inside this is a Allwinner A10 1.2GHz Cortex A8 Processor and a Mali-400 GPU, a jump from the 1.0 ghz of the Ainol 7 Paladin. The Mali-400 was also use in the Samsung Galaxy S II which is quite fast and can handle some graphic-heavy applications. (GPUs are used to have a smoother 3D games such as Asphalt 5 and many more)

It has the same 7″ screen but this one has a bigger resolution. The Ainol 7 Elf will have a resolution of 1024 x 600 (same with the original Samsung Galaxy Tab) compared to the 800 x 480 resolution of the Ainol 7 Paladin. 800 x 480 is kinda small for a tablet because most midrange and high end smartphones today use a 800 x 480 resolution and some of them, even bigger than that (1280×800 like the Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus). Multi-touch? don’t worry because compared to other resistive tablets that you see in some stalls, this tablet uses a 7″ capacitive screen. So what’s with the multi-touch?, when you have this, that screen can recognize more than 1 finger. For this tablet, it can recognize up to 5 fingers. And you know what? this tablet is using the latest Google Android OS, the Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich. 
Some of you are disappointed with the Ainol Novo 7 Paladin because that tablet doesn’t have a camera for video calling services like Skype and Qik. But in Ainol Elf tablet, you’ll have a 2.0 megapixel front camera. Too bad it doesn’t have a rear camera but hey, at least for a tablet below P10,000 you’ll have a tablet like this!. Some other features that you might want are HDMI, So what’s the price?. According to Widget City Hub, their official facebook page. The Ainol Novo 7 Elf will start at P7,850. My opinion? For its specifications, I think this tablet is a bargain. If you want a tablet that won’t hurt your pocket then I recommend this one. Oh and The Technoclast said that the Ainol Novo 7 Paladin is quite solid, I think this one is solid too.
