How fast is it, 2 Ghz ??
If you are looking for an excellent iPad Mini alternative with a very competitive and cheap price tag, you're definitely looking at Onda's newest V812 Tablet. The very first 8" China MID Tablet packed with a powerful QuadCore Cortex A7 processor with an OctoCore PowerVR SGX544 graphics that is similar to latest iPad device. Its very good to see Onda taking the initiative to provide a low cost 8" Tablet powered with the latest Allwinner A31 Chipset is said to improve the Cortex A7 architecture offering a more efficient, more powerful than today's Cortex A9 processors.
Like Onda V972 Tablet, the Onda V812 Tablet also have a huge 2GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB or Storage plus a capability to add a microSDCard upto 32GB. Having a QuadCore processor, OctoCore graphics and 2GB of RAM will definitely withstand every known heavy Apps and Games created for Android as of today. Users can now simply enjoy the JellyBean 4.1 Android OS's multitasking without worrying to much of resources it needs. However, like other Allwinner A31 Tablets being offered as of now to Market, this Onda V812 lacks Bluetooth Connectivity as-well. You are forced to use BT Dongles if you usually need them.
An Online Store based in Shenzhen China is already selling the Onda V812 Tablet for almost half the price of Apple's iPad Mini, you can them them for US$185.99 including a world-wide free shipping.

GHz isn't really not the metrics on how a processor will perform...How fast is it, 2 Ghz ??
All A31 SoCs that I have seen so far seem to be clocked at 1.3 Ghz.How fast is it, 2 Ghz ??
I suggest that you wait for a little longer because cube is going to release its 8 inch tablet soon and ainol too /(with GPS). I myself wait for some reviews to be sure what my next purchase will be.And this is the point. Order now and get the onda v812 in 1-2 month or waiting 3 weeks to gather some more news on tablet market like another A31 tablet in this price range or even better: a RK3188 Tablet?
No, there is V811 quad core version too. Also, V801 quad. =)811: Dual Core, the old one
812: Quad Core A31, the new one
Similar results to what I have seen in other benches from China.I was a bit disappointed about the quadrant score, especialy the Onda, both came hardly above 3000.
