I've just received my Onda V919 Air 3G, only the 32GB version is in stock at the time of writing this which I got from Geek Buying here: http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Onda-...er-341122.html There seems to be supply issues as the system was delayed a few times by Onda and the 64GB model is still about 2 weeks off from shipping out.

I think it's a promising looking system that could do with some custom roms and XDA Love The OS switch button seems to just reboot the tablet in the OS, it's not really a non reboot on the fly OS switch like Onda claim it is! It's only a bit faster than the Teclast OS dual boot switch due to not having the dual boot menu to go through. However if you want to boot to Android and you shutdown in Windows, you have to load Windows then do the switch, no direct menu on boot to jump to Android, this is slower than Teclast's approach!
Edit: The latest bios update adds a dual boot start up selector menu if you hold volume up on boot.


First impressions:

So far my initial impressions are generally good, the system is more of an iPad Air clone than the X98 Air 3G is in terms of its looks. I''ll be putting the tablet through it's paces so far I can report that:

Pros:
Nice build quality, better than my X98 Air 3G (Feels more solid)
Captive home button for Android and Windows start button is a nice addition.
Light rom for a Chinese tablet.
Fast Hynix 32GB eMMC drive - 160mbs read and 80 write)


Cons:
Slightly larger gap (0.1-0.2mm?) between the screen and touch panel Vs the Teclast X98 Air 3G
No HDMI output
Some connectivity issues with my home Wireless N router, a few limited connections in Windows.
Battery life a good 1-2 hours less than the Teclast X98 Air 3G depending on use.
You have to remove the plastic top cover when removing sd cards and your Wifi and 3G aerial is there, so you will loose signal!

Is the battery cell capacity indeed 6000 mAh? Because when I Iook on the Onda website in the textual specifications it states 7000 mAh.

This one might have HSPA capabilities with T-Mobile in the US. I am hoping someone can confirm soon.
