Onda have been busy on their Weibo (China’s twitter equivalent) posting new details on the Core M 5Y10 based Onda v116w to be released soon. Not to be confused with the Onda v116w I reviewed here. This updated version, dudded the Onda V116w Core M has a full laminated 1920 x 1080p IPS panel. Yes, finally the Chinese tech firms are moving towards laminated displays, it’s about damn time to. No more glass + gap then IPS panel. Panels now similar to the Dell Venue 11 Pro or other first rate tablet brands.
It’s got the Core M 5Y10 which can turbo upto 2.0Ghz with a 800mhz base clock, 4GB of ram, Full sized usb 3.0 port, 3G and a 64GB SSD. It comes with a Magnetic keyboard/stand/case combo. So decent specs and this will defiantly be faster than a new Atom X7 Z8700. With these specs I certinaly hope Onda don’t use the same build like the V116w has, it’s very flimsy and a finger print nightmare.
If the price is good, close to $400-$500 usd I think it will sell. As it is I have a Cube i7 Core M waiting to ship so it would be a nice tablet to compare it to. No word on the battery capsity, I do hope it’s at least 10000 mAH.
