The Xiaomi Mipad is an iPad mini-sized tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, a 2048 x 1536 pixel display, and Xiaomi’s custom version of Google Android, called MIUI.
The tablet is one of the first devices to ship with NVIDA’s quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor featuring 192-core graphics. Other features include 2GB of RAM,16GB of storage, 802.11ac WiFi, an 8MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, stereo speakers, and a 6700mAh battery.
Xiaomi has a reputation for offering high quality hardware at low prices, and the company’s new tablet is no different — it will sell for ¥1,499, or about $240 US.
While it’s not clear if or when Xiaomi will offer the Mipad outside of China, the company has been starting to move into international markets… and could start offering smartphones in the United States in 2015. Maybe we’ll see a Xiaomi tablet here by then as well.
