There’s not much in the thread yet, but several of those AnTuTu screens were posted.

UNOFFICIAL Onda Windows Upgrade

Update, Friday June 20 2014: Onda has reversed course: Onda Re-Announces V819i Windows Upgrade, Onda To Release V975i Windows Upgrade.

Thanks to malkovic in Comments who provided two links to very unofficial Windows upgrades for the Onda V819i and the Onda V975i.

V819i install Win8.1 System Tutorial [Google Translate]

V975i install Windows 8.1 UP1 [Google Translate]

Both forum threads have locks on them, requiring registration (and probably replying to the thread) to view the hidden content (which consists of instructions and likely file download links).

I provide these only as information.

The risk of bricking your tablet is very high. Neither of these look to be finished products (the one for the V975i requires using a bit from the Teclast X98 3G Windows upgrade!).

Onda’s Windows Upgrade Cancellation: It Gets Weirder

Update, Friday June 20 2014: Onda has reversed course: Onda Re-Announces V819i Windows Upgrade, Onda To Release V975i Windows Upgrade.

Previously: Onda Cancels Their Android Tablet Windows Upgrade!

I really thought that was the entire story. That we’d all wait until next week for Onda to flesh out more detail.

Well today I was trying to impose some order on my Bookmarks and popped into the Onda Weibo page.

That’s when all WTF?!!? broke out over here.

The Pipo P1 Is A Rockchip 3288 MONSTER!

PipoP1MWAYK001

While Apple couldn’t do two-pane multitasking for the introduction of iOS 8, Rockchip has done MultiWindow Android 2.0 — which is like something out of science-fiction!

I didn’t appreciate just how damn powerful the Rockchip 3288 and Mali T764 GPU combination were until I saw two new videos today.

CUBE iWork8, A “1/16” Tablet, Gets A Review

A “1/16” tablet gets its name from having 1GB of RAM and 16GBs of internal storage and is applied to Windows 8 tablets that generally have seven- and eight-inch screens.

The iWork8 from CUBE is such a tablet and is reviewed by IMP3Net [Google Translate].

Other reviews of this tablet might have appeared that I ignored. This one happened to catch my eye so I read it. It was, um, eye-opening.
