I've seen a number of people comment on poor battery life of the Atom based Android tablets as well. To keep costs down there are compromises.

With Windows I had always thought that higher resolution meant more on desktop screen but at a smaller size, fine where resolution increases with screen size but how does this work on a tablet size screen with apps that aren't optimised for touch. High resolution on iPad and Android are fine as the app interface is designed for touch. The same can't be said for Windows just yet.

If the Onda tablet is anything like the Tecelast Air II it looks good but battery is poor and performance is no better than Linx.

Looking at the specs you can't help but think that they've all come off the same production line in a Chinese factory and the only thing that differentiates them is the final printing and packaging.

If you do buy one from China then be careful I've noticed that some are now stating that windows won't be activated if the language is changed from Chinese. At least aliexpress and Geekbuyer are telling you before you buy.
You cannot compare battery power of a low cost device with a device costing 4 or 5 times as much. Compare it with say a Hudl2, and then comparison is valid.
