Video: Onda V989 Vs. Xiaomi MiPad With PDFs

Ouch! This is from a test published at the IMP3Net forum [Google Translate].

The video after the break looks very bad.

What I think is going on is that the software being used hasn’t been written to taken into account an octa-core CPU. And someone in the IMP3Net forum points out that the app in question might be using the lower-power cores since PDF reading is — ha! ha! — considered undemanding.

Here We Go Again: How Murdoch’s Offer For Time Warner Fucks Hollywood

Back in 1983, some 90% of the U.S. media was controlled by 50 companies. I thought Hollywood had it bad enough when studios started gobbling up networks, and cable companies started taking over studios and networks. Now 90% of media is controlled by 5 companies — Comcast, Viacom, CBS, Walt Disney, Time Warner and 21st Century Fox.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Teclast X89HD: More Information

Thanks to nubkandoo in Comments. He pointed out a price of 1,700 yuan and I asked for the source. This set me off on an unexpected second round of research and I have some new info.

It’s already listed for pre-sale at Tmall [Google Translate]:

TeclastP89HDTmall01

And the price is indeed 1,699 yuan. To put that in perspective, the Xiaomi MiPad is considered by the domestic Chinese to be expensive at 1,499 yuan.

1,699 yuan is about US$274!

That’s for a 7.9-inch tablet! From China!

But that price is most likely wrong.
