Xiaomi, the Chinese company nicknamed as Apple of China, unveiled an Intel Atom Chipset powered, 7.9 inch tablet which runs on Windows 10. It houses a 64-bit Intel quad-core x5-Z8500 processor, clocked at 2.24 Ghz, 2 GB DDR3 RAM and optional 16 GB or 64GB of internal storage. Apart from this, it includes USB Type-C port (fast charging) , Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and SIM which supports 3G. To make sure the tablet survives heavy usage, it packs in 6400 mAh battery pack. Those who love to make video calls, you have a 8 MP cameras with F/2.0 aperture and a 5 MP front camera.
Mi Pad 2 also becomes Xiaomi’s first Windows 10 device. The company is testing Windows 10 Mobile on Mi4, and the officially announcement is just around the corner. We should expect something on Thanksgiving.
The Windows 10 version will only be available in 64 GB storage ( Windows 10 Installation takes around 16 to 18 GB), and will sell for RMB 1299(~$200). The 16GB Mi Pad 2 will sell for RMB 999 ( ~$156). Both the devices will be available in China from November 27th. They will be available in Dark Grey and Champagne Gold colors
Xiaomi has a strong presence in India, though they have been very silent recently, and we expect both the devices to become available by next year, early quarter. Mi Pad 2 should cost about Rs 13,000 to 14,000 in India. While there are a lot of Windows 10 powered tablets in India, Xiaomi did shake the low-budget segment in India, and we expect it to happen with tablet segment as well. More here
