Onda V972 Android Tablet – Retina-type Display, Quad Core Processor – Specs, Pricing

Onda has unveiled a 9.7 inch Android Tablet device with a capacitive IPS display, which is more like the iPad and has the similar screen resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. The same display is what we can find in the newly launched Apple iPad, but it couldn’t match the specs of the Nexus 10 tablet device. The Onda V972 has got a aluminum casing, and the weight of 1.4 pounds to look like a sleek and light weighed device which one can flaunt to compare with the Apple’s large tablet.

The V972 has packed in the quad-core Allwinner A31 processor, a PowerVR SGX544MP2 GPU and the tablet would support the HD video playing along with the 3D Graphics playing too. The processor is going to be supported by the 2GB of RAM, and if the Internal storage of 16GB isn’t enough for you, there’s a MicroSD card slot for those who wanted to expand the memory.

There are two cameras in the Onda V972, with the rear camera being a 5 megapixel one having the options like autofocus etc. and the front shooter is a 2 megapixel one, which would provide a decent picture quality for the video calling. One of the best things about the Onda V972 tablet device is the 8000 mAh battery capacity, which is quite a lot and would provide at least 10 hours of good usage.
The tablet device would be having the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system and is going to have all the standard connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and USB and one could even connect to the Internet using the 3G Dongle externally as the tablet doesn’t have an option to insert a SIM for data network connectivity.

The V972 comes from a brand that doesn’t have much name and impact in any market till now, so has kept the pricing too quite low, with the tag of $240 and this is an attractive pricing when you are looking at a 10 inch tablet with the neat display, a quad core processor, a 5 megapixel rear shooter and the huge battery. The Onda V972 should be one such tablet device that can be chosen above many other brands such as Archos etc. when you have the budget in mind.
