… just on the heels of Allwinner A31s SoC arrived with the new Onda V818mini topping Apple iPad mini ($329) at far better price ($145 in China and $170 outside) [USD 99 Allwinner, March 22, 2013]. No wonder as ONDA is the lead device vendor of Allwinner.
And Chinese reviews noted especially the extraordinary price/performance improvement with benchmark results such as:
Running from Rabbit rabbit hardware performance testing results as can be seen, Onda V711s quad-core running at 11,888, such results can almost match the current 1000 Yuan [$163] price mid tablet.
The $81 (¥ 498) for v711s in China is from June 16 as you could see on Amazon.cn.
