XiaoMi Pad: The Pad you will buy

“Make the most usable Android tablet”. Exactly. Exactly, XiaoMi.

XiaoMi continues to make their name with the announcement of XiaoMi Pad today. The product officially goes on sale after June 2014 but with the specifications, we are looking at another winner in the Chinese company’s lineup.

XiaoMi first ever tablet comes with some of the best specifications there is in the industry; A 2048 x 1536 resolution display, that’s 326 ppi, and the newest Nvida Tegra K1 processor and 2GB ram more than hold it’s own against the ever popular iPad mini Retina or Google Nexus 7 2013. Though, it is hardly a fair comparison since Pad Mini has been around for some time now and you bet an update is always around the corner.
XiaoMi Pad with it’s specifications will hardly raise anyone’s eyebrow. It’s selling price will. 16GB verion is on sale for RMB 1499, roughly SGD 300 and 64GB version for RMB 1699, roughly SGD 340. In contrast iPad mini Retina is on sale at SGD 548 for 16GB and SGD 828 for the 64GB version.

Many says XiaoMi Pad has no originality and looks every bit another of the cheapo knock-off from Shenzhen. But from what I have seen in the last two years in Shanghai, XiaoMi is different from the test of the pack. In fact having it’s own user interface and same-as-iPad-but-still-looks-great designs really differentiate itself.

Buying a 7 inch-ish tablet now? Look no further than iPad mini, Google Nexus 7 2013 and later in the year, the XiaoMi Pad.
