Onda V989 Press Material Laundered

And this time PadNews is caught laundering press material from Onda about the V989 tablet.

The big difference is that only IMP3Net reveals this is press material by Onda:


PadNews puts it under a fraudulent byline that makes it looks like it’s a review by staff:


And although PadNews modifies the opening of the piece, it winds up with the same closing paragraph as IMP3Net.





See the fraud for yourself. Compare IMP3Net [Google Translate] to PadNews [Google Translate].

And don’t believe one damned benchmark in that.

    Nothing about the release date, don’t?

    Mike, your remarks about fraud seem a little harsh, don’t you think? I doubt those websites really want to defraud customer.

    They more likely just want to post content & are more lazy than anything else, unless I am missing something?

    BTW, I ordered a V989 through Aliexpress thinking it was already available. It’s supposed to be on its way. I guess the seller lied & is waiting for it to be released to end it…

    Great blog, keep posting!

    • Fraud. They all have a history of it. Check the fraud category in the right sidebar to see past posts. Even cngadget admits tech sites in China do paid placement posts. And they should know.
