Xiaomi has this week unveiled the first addition to their new range of Android tablets, in the form of the newly launched Xiaomi MiPad, that is equipped with a 7.9 inch display offering users a 2,048×1,536-pixels resolution.
The Xiaomi MiPad has a similar style to that of Apple’s iPad mini tablet, but is powered by a Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra K1 processor supported by 2 GB of RAM.
Xiaomi offer their new MiPad Android tablet with a choice of either 16 or 64GB of on-board storage depending on your requirements, and both tablets are capable of supporting up to 128GB of extra storage using the included microSD card slot.
The Xiaomi MiPad comes supplied running a heavily customised operating system based on Google’s Android 4.4.2 KitKat software. However the user interface has been tweaked by Xiaomi to be a little closer to Apple’s iOS operating system rather than Google’s Android.
Other features of the new Xiaomi MiPad tablet include a 5 megapixel front facing camera for video calling, together with a f/2.0 8 megapixel rear facing for video and photographs.
The Xiaomi MiPad will be launching in China during June and will be priced at $240 (1,499 Chinese yuan) for the 16GB version and $272 (1,699 Chinese yuan) for the 64GB.
