Onda V919 3G Air iPad Air 2 Clone

I’m not really a fan of clones because I feel they are violating copyright and infringes on many legal things. But then again, seeing popular gadgets being cloned is interesting because most of them can be funny. Apple gadget look-a-likes running Android are nothing new so this Android-powered iPad Air clone is not really surprising. The iPad Air is still pricey but the design is one of the best in tablets today ( not that Apple’s design has really changed over the years). If you dig the iPad Air but is a hardcore Android fan, you can get this alternative from China for only $193.

Officially called as the Onda V919 3G Air, this iPad Air-like tablet is not bad for a mobile device that is under $200. The basic model already boasts of 64GB built-in storage and 3G cellular data connectivity (sorry, no 4G LTE yet). It doesn’t only run Android 4.4 KitKat. It’s dual booting so you can switch between Android 4.4 and Windows 8.1. Of course, it won’t run iOS so don’t expect to hack the tablet and run iOS apps.

Specs of the Onda V919 3G Air include a 9.7-inch 4:3 display screen, 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution, aluminum unibody, 5 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing camera, 2.16GHz 64-bit Intel Bay Trail-T Z3736F quad-core solution, 2GB RAM, microSD card slot, and WCDMA band support. There’s really no 4G LTE band support but the tablet is good enough for its affordable price.



      • Probably not a good idea to have this if you leave the country and come back, it will be confiscated as a copy by customs officers. Of course you could loan an ipad like interface but is it really worth the trouble?

      • I have travelled a lot and have never once had customs check any device to see if it’s a fake. They don’t pull you aside and rummage through your stuff looking for things that resemble in some way, other products.
        This is a completely unrealistic concern.

      • That’s only a concern if you’re bringing in a quantity of them for resale. If you’re just carrying one unit that you’re using personally, I’ve never heard of anyone having to prove anything other than it turned on and functioned as something other than a bomb. The idea that the TSA or customs is going to confiscate your Onda tablet because it looks like an iPad is ridiculous.

  1. I think the only problem is I don’t believe it has the ability to charge and have things plugged into the OTG.
    Can any body confirm this?

  2. I was going to comment on something that I thought could use better grammar, but then I started reading it over and over, and now I convinced myself it sounds fine… Maybe I confused myself into thinking its correct or sounds good, but IDK now.
    I usually don’t correct people on grammar unless it sounds confusing or can be taken mulitple ways due to no punctuation but thats it. I could care less about spelling and minor mishaps, it happens.
