The forum astroturfing has begun for the Onda V819 Mini [Google English].
In the midst of a bunch of beauty shots (nothing to see, really), they try to pull this:
There is no way in hell that an AllWinner A31s CPU running at 1GHz can ever honestly score that. It’s honestly in the 11,000-12,000 range.
And they’re called on it in the forum too:
Side that ran sub unimportant, while scores of fraud
He’s calling it fraudulent, as am I.
I don’t know what Onda hopes to accomplish with this. But they’re damaging their credibility.
I saw this post first at 1Pad [Google English] and was impressed that they had taken the time to do such a report.
Because I then saw the same damn report at PadHz [Google English], which meant it was actually from Rockchip and not any sort of original reporting!
1Pad dared to state it had an author, although it was also labeled “Manufacturer Contribution.” “Author,” my ass. The text is identical, for all intents and purposes, in both posts. It’s Rockchip pimpery.
With that in mind, let’s continue.

“Aoson” confuses the hell out of Google Translate. It becomes “Ericsson,” which is an entirely different brand name and company!
Aoson announces the M785 [Google English].
Or should I say pre-announce? As the two published images, one here, are just renders:
Some specs: Rockchip 3188, 1GB RAM, 16GBs storage, USB 2.0 (OTG), microSD card slot, mini-HDMI-out, Android 4.2, headphone jack, AC charging jack, 2MP front and back cameras, and an already-problematic 3,300mAh battery.
Another problem is that Aoson website was down when I tried to access it. Not a good sign.
There’s an English-language review of the Allfine Fine11 tablet.
This is a Rockchip 3188-based tablet with 2GBs of RAM, 32GBS of storage, and a large 1366 x 768 11.6-inch screen that claims to be IPS.
But an IPS screen just doesn’t do this:
This is why user reviews matter before buying. People would otherwise believe the manufacturer’s claim and wind up being suckered out of their money.
I’m combining two Teclast items into one post.
The first item is new photos of the upcoming Teclast P89, which will use an Intel Atom CPU [Google English].
I’m just running two. Hit the link for the rest.
The dual speaker grilles and plastic band at top are interesting. The front looks like any other iPad Mini clone.
