The Neverending Story Of The Windows Upgrade For The Onda V975i

Just when I thought two days ago was the last word from Onda on the subject …

Onda issued a Weibo communique today about the Windows upgrade for the V975i:

Chinese:

#昂达升级Win8.1系统# 【升级】#昂达V975i四核#升级及换新详情→http://t.cn/RvsgUJo

Google Translate

# # Onda upgrade Win8.1 system [upgrade] # # Onda V975i quad-core upgrade and renewal details → http://t.cn/RvsgUJo

Onda has set up a special page just for V975i owners. The top of which looks like this:

OndaV975iWUPage

It contains two links, one to download firmware instructions from Baidu [limited Google Translate]:

OndaBaiduInstructions

And one to the list of service centers.

I really hope this is the final word on the subject.

This screw-up should provide a lesson to everyone buying a tablet from China. When a vendor says, “Someday our tablet will do this,” your response should be, “That’s when I’ll buy it then: Someday.”
