7” quad-core Allwinner A31s based Onda tablets for $65 (v701s) and $81 with IPS (v711s) in China, while for $89 and $99 outside

image… 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.


V701s [from June 7] and V711s [from May 18] parameters on the Chinese site of ONDA/昂达 (see also V701s [from June 8] and V711s [from May 27] on the international site of ONDA) as translated by Google and Bing with manual edits (clock frequency of the CPU cores is not indicated on either of the sites, in China and on the company’s international site it is however 1GHz, while some international resellers are offering 1.5GHz versions for a little higher price):
