The Teclast P98 Air and Onda V989 are both using the octa-core Allwinner A80 CPU with 2GBs of RAM, 32GBs of internal storage, USB 3.0, and a 9.7-inch Retina-class screen. Aside from the styling of their cases — the Teclast tablet is more of flat slab while the Onda is sloping like an iPad Air — is there much difference between the two?
Tablet wonk iambillbil in the IMP3Net forum does a hardware evaluation of the Teclast P98 Air and compares it to the Onda V989 he previously evaluated [Google Translate].
It’s called the i7s and PadHz has a bunch of photos [Google Translate].
No specs were given but this is likely a seven-inch screen with an Intel CPU. It’s a low-end budget tablet with a 599 yuan (~US$98) price. If there’s actually an Intel CPU inside, will there be a Windows version too?
From a Weibo communiqué:
This is another day of Weibo having problems enlarging images. I doubt the two photos of the MiPad are with MIUI 6 anyway.
For anyone with a Xiaomi 2/2s phone, here’s the forum listing for MIUI 6 [Google Translate].
In a Weibo communiqué, Teclast reveals more details about the X98 Air 3G. It includes a different Intel CPU!
(Note that at post time, Weibo was having issues with images, so no large images here.)

Over in the Teclast forum, someone has published their unboxing and testing of the P98 Air [drop URL into Bing Translator or use Chrome]. Note that this is not the 3G version, which hasn’t yet been released.
