In a Weibo communique today, Onda tried to get people to think they’re just like Xiaomi:

# Onda eight nuclear Onda V989 Tablet PC # # # [New] eight-core gaming world’s most powerful tablet, IPO! Eight-core CPU, 64-core GPU, 9.7 英寸 iPad Air original screen, three-axis gyroscope and other flat top configuration, the first mall Onda micro-channel 500 beta version fully sold out in seven minutes! The second batch of 500 999 yuan buying a limited beta, will be held Wednesday at 10 am and continue to be at the mall Onda micro-channel, so stay tuned! @ Full-Technology
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
Five hundred — in seven minutes?
Xiaomi sold that many MiPad in perhaps a few seconds.
Yes, I know this is a beta test — but seven minutes to sell five hundred.
And now they announce another five hundred, as if this is an event?
