According to Andy Rubin, senior vice president of mobile at Google, "I’m thrilled to see the entrance of MIPS-Based Android 4.0 tablets into the market. Low cost, high performance tablets are a big win for mobile consumers and a strong illustration of how Android’s openness drives innovation and competition for the benefit of consumers around the world."??

The new Android 4.0 tablet is available in China and online through Ainol Electronics Co., and it will be available in the United States and other geographies within the next several months under brands from companies including Leader International Inc. and OMG Electronics Ltd.
