Just came across this over at onda-tablet.com on their news page, and I quote:
"Onda V975s Quad Core Tablet is the upgrade version of Onda V971s Quad Core
Tablet PC.Onda V975s Quad Core pre-installed with Android 4.2.2 OS,support

Yes people, it is as what it sounds like, Onda apparently came out with a new 9.7 inch tablet model with some significant changes to it's hardware
Now, if you notice the part about the screen no longer being the standard 2048 x 1536 resolution "Retina" display, now it seems that the screen has been downgraded to a more modest 1024 x 768 resolution screen, which in my opinion is still not too bad at all. I wonder if this was done to help improve battery charge life, since it appears that many people have blamed the Retina screen of hogging most of the battery juice.
Oh yea, and then there's that apparent "Ethernet Connection" addition which I guess is a first for Onda tablets of late. I do welcome this one, it's always nice to have an alternate internet connection to just having WiFi. Now, on their next model if they just add Bluetooth and offer an optional built in 3G data modem, then it will be perfect.
There also looks to be a V975 on the way. The S would seem to be a lower spec with a lower price point.
I doubt there will be an Ethernet connector on the tablet itself as it would make it thicker. Ethernet support probably comes in the form of drivers to existing USB Ethernet dongles. I'm interested if anyone could confirm when some Onda V975 closeup pictures or reviews are available.
