Apple's iPad Air 2 is the best tablet on the market, and no I am not an Apple die-hard in the slightest (as my Android smartphone will attest). However, the Air 2 sets the standard in terms of getting the most things right, but even this amazing slate is lacking something. It, and indeed a multitude of Android tablets cannot offer the kind of productivity offered by Windows 8.1 tablets that rock a full PC OS.If only there was something that could do both. Well, there actually is, the Onda V919 3G Air. You've taken a look at the slate in the image above, and the unknown Chinese branding and are probably worried, an emotion I actually share. However the Onda Air may be a blatant iPad Air 2 rip-off, but it is actually quite good, possibly. The 3G version costs just $193, has 64GB of storage and here's the kicker, it can dual boot Android 4.4 KitKat or Windows 8.1 with just the press of a button. I would instantly trash these kinds of products instantly as soon as they land in my inbox, but the Onda has the hook that I think is worth checking out. I am trying to get my hands on one to see how it manages those multiple operating systems.
