Icon14 Only in China: Onda V927 a 9.7" Retina Quadcore Tablet with Android for $240 !!


SO the Google and Apple and now to the gang MS are selling tablets at high prices..
well now there are more options and this is one the best options out in the world, this is Onda's 9.7" tablet with Same screen as the new iPad that is a Retina display with a resolution of 2048x1536 IPS screen and a quad core processor.
it also has the memory expansion expansion which can take upto 64GB and the onboard 16 Gb.


I think this one to beat all of them !
China's Onda was once somewhat known as a manufacturer of low-cost PMPs that packed some relatively high-end specs, but it's unsurprisingly since moved on to more of a focus on tablets. While those haven't exactly garnered much attention to date, it's latest certainly continues that high-specs / low-cost tradition. Known only as the V972, the tablet packs Android 4.1 for an OS (a 4.2 upgrade is apparently promised), and it's among the first to use Allwinner's new quad-core A31 processor. The real standout detail, though, is a 9.7-inch screen that boasts the same 2048 x 1536 resolution as the Retina iPad. Otherwise, you'll get 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, front and rear cameras, and a promised eight to ten hours of battery life -- all for $240. Those interested in taking the plunge on one will have to wait a bit longer, though -- it's currently listed as out of stock on Onda's website, and there doesn't appear to be any other retailers selling it just yet.
Chinese tablet maker Onda has unveiled one of the first tablets featuring Allwinner’s new quad-core processor. The Onda V972 is powered by an Allwinner A31 chip which features 4 ARM Cortex-A7 cores.
The tablet also features PowerVR SGX544MP2 graphics with support for HD video, 3D graphics, and high pixel displays. That’s a good thing -- because the Onda V972 also packs an iPad-like 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display.
Onda’s new tablet also packs 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, front and rear cameras, and an aluminum case. There’s also a microSD card slot for extra storage.
It runs Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but there are already plans for an Android 4.2 software updated. The 9.7 inch tablet weighs about 1.4 pounds.
Onda says the tablet should be able to get up to 10 hours of battery life from its 8000mAh battery.
The Onda V972 should be available from the sort of shops that ship Chinese tablets to the US soon. It’s expected to sell for about $240.

btw i don't think the model no is V927 it's V972. earlier model was V971. Mistake by phonearena post . Check original post. Says V972.
Just for the knacks. A31 is speculated to be 2x powerful than Tegra 3.

Re: Only in China: Onda V927 a 9.7" Retina Quadcore Tablet with Android for $240 !!

from what I have read RK3066 is better performing than its Amlogic competitor besides being newer, but someplace I also did read that they also run hotter.
But, there is also a lot of development going on for porting Ubuntu on RK3066 devices. That means, a full blown Linux distro on a cheap tablet / tv box, whiich is awesome!
RK31xx were supposed to launch in Q4 2012, so a newer gen is also round the corner. These days, newer gen tablets are released faster than a rat's progeny
Thanks to Chinese manufacturing. I do envy them

How many would be interested in getting these?..
I would suggest Onda but not over Teclast and PiPo at the moment.
@FreeRadical i am using an RK3066 based tablet Teclat A10 dual core + quad core Mali 400 . It doesn't run hot.

Re: Only in China: Onda V927 a 9.7" Retina Quadcore Tablet with Android for $240 !!

Key points.

If you find a tablet that suits your need don't go by the specs. As chinese tablets get updated in 4-6 months. That's the trend.

Before buying one do a research on the firmware support provided. Due to above mentioned reason newer tablets with less brushed firmwares are released and not polished in time but rather get taken over with newer versions with better hardware. Result - End users with older version suffer.

In this term SmartQ is the best company in terms of firmware support and way superior quality than any other chinese tablets out there and costlier as well. SmartQ T30 is current flagship which is a OMAP4470 based capable to run jellybean as well as Win RT.

Teclast and Onda would come then imo. Do mind i am going by history and firmware support is considered to a much higher degree when i suggested these two. PiPo also manufactures good quality tablets and uses superior components in few models but lacks in polished firmware. (they are getting better these days)

At the end don't go blindly by the specs. Buy the one which satisfies your need as a tablet. Currently all the RK3066 and AML8726 based tablets are quite sufficient for any type of apps you throw at them. That said at the moment these are the models i would suggest for purchase

SmartQ T30, T20 both 10.1"
Teclast A10 9.7", A11 10.1"
Onda V971
PiPo M2

Community support also plays a big part in making a tablet usable, checkout if custom roms and h/w, s/w fixes are available for your tablet
i'm using a heropad c8 bought 1.5 years back and its been upgraded from froyo to ics just because of community support, theres even a jelly bean rom for it, but slightly unstable.
Ainol tabs enjoy a lot of community support, so keep that in mind before buying a tablet
