    need OTG or USB host solution for Onda V701s Tab

    Onda have a bad habit of using casing which means the USB connector sits really deep. I don't know is this is the case with this model but I , and others, have had success by cutting back the cover of the OTG cable to expose more connector with our machines. I have a V973.

    Microsoft's $900 million Surface RT write-down: How did this happen?

    That the keyboard is an extra 100 shows they still haven't worked out why it's failed.

    What Do You Think About Your Onda Tablet?

    So after a few days I can confirm this is really a step change in the performance of the A973. A couple of quirks here and there but it's by and large stable , fast and fluid now. I remain unconvinced the battery life is any better.

    [Review] Onda V973 Hands-On

    Yes. It seems chassis on the Onda is very poorly designed so they need a USB with extra length. However it does still work on normal USB devices. It's just you can't use most USB cables with it. A real pain in the ass. I've ended up ordering a new OTG cable from Hong Kong as I lost mine and I...

    Can you charge anything else with that charger? Try charging something like a blackberry with it.

    What Do You Think About Your Onda Tablet?

    I have a V973 and I'm somewhat frustrated. Even with the latest 4.2.2 build it can be unstable. They seem to improve things with every build but it seems to get in a state where apps go all sluggish and you get a wait message. As I'm sat 5 meters from a good router and it has moments where it's...

    [Review] Onda V973 Hands-On

    I'd agree with all of that. They really need to work on the stability, and quick. I love the screen. It's great for reading and watching videos but the overall stability, even with the new OS version, is really not good enough.

    I've had an V973 for a couple of weeks now. Been a little bit of a rocky road. I bought it in Shenzhen. Initially I just couldn't get the google play store to work. Quick look on the onda-tablet website suggested a change in setting, those instructions didn't work. But there was a v2 build...
