More than a few people got excited at the prospect of a $100 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet when a no-name manufacturer sprang out of China marketing the Novo7... and immediately became less excited at a $60 shipping fee that seemed more than a little fishy. Now the same low-powered tablet is sitting pretty with a pre-order status on import sites PandaWill and Merimobiles, both of which seem legitimate enough as far as Internet storefronts go.

Android's open source nature lends itself to a staggering variety of form factors and price points, but if Chinese manufacturer MIPS Technologies is to be believed, it's breaking into the low-end in a huge way today. The company is promoting its brand new NOVO7 device as "the first Ice Cream Sandwich tablet", and has priced it at a staggering $99 USD. The specs aren't amazing and the hardware won't turn heads, but if you've got to have ICS right now (and can't bring yourself to try out a custom ROM) this would seem to be the cheapest way to do so.
