Same-day update: Apparently there is another Tmall listing where the price is still 1,099 yuan! So which is the correct listing and price? I have no idea. Dealing with China from a distance is frustrating. Thanks to Miguel in Comments for this other link. [Next-day update: That link now shows 1599. See also More About Onda V975w Price At Tmall]
Thanks to reznap in Comments for the tip.
The Onda V975w price has gone up by 300 yuan at Tmall.
Due to the ambiguity of using Google Translate — and the failure of Chinese tech sites to cover the Onda press conference on the same day — we don’t know if yesterday’s price was an error, a special one-day pre-sale price, or what.
1499 yuan is about US$242. The same price as the Xiaomi MiPad.
A price increase is always disappointing. On the other hand, Onda has a monopoly on this kind of tablet until Teclast does a Windows-only version of the X98 3G. Wait a month and the price will probably drop.
