Xiaomi MiPad gets certified in Malaysia; launch coming soon?
The Xiaomi MiPad tablet has received certification from Malaysia's SIRIM database, which is the equivalent to China's TENAA and the FCC in the U.S. This apparently means that Malaysia will be the second country after China, to play host to Xiaomi's Android flavored slate. While pricing and availability are unknown at present, based on the selling price of the tablet in China, we should see it sell for the equivalent of $209.75 USD in Malaysia.

The Android powered Xiaomi MiPad tablet offers a 7.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1536 x 2048. Under the hood is a 2.2GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra K1 CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, with 16GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those needing additional memory. On back of the slab is a Sony manufactured 8MP camera, and a front-facing 5MP "selfie" snapper is on the front of the tablet. A more than capable 6700mAh battery keeps the lights on.

While most of the focus when it comes to Xiaomi has been on its handsets, there is no reason to skip over this slate. We should point out that the Xiaomi MiPad is available with Wi-Fi connectivity only. There is no model of the tablet that connects to a carrier's cellular network.  .

Thanks for the tip, Chris!

Another self righteous Apple fan. Apple buy a lot of generic parts from others just like any other OEMs. These parts are assemble by factories such as Foxconn not own by Apple. Why Apple fans thinks apple has rights to stop others from running their smart phone and tablet business. Every Television, every refrigerator, every air-conditioning fan coil unit also look the same, why your guy don't cry foul?? Very strange behaviour. To me I would also like to see Apple sue someone else besides Samsung a Korean company in US soil. Try a Chinese based company if they have the guts. The are good choices are Lenovo, Huiwei and ZTE. They have smartphone and tablet available in US. Many look exactly like iPhone and iPad.

Please read my comment carefully. I didn't say Apple makes the iphone itself. There are typically infinite design language if these Chinese makers seriously consider not to imitate Apple. But they won't becoz they want to get Apple fans attention by using dirty trick such as rip-off and lowly price tag which in a casual term represents misleading info to customers. No wonder why Apple only sued Samsung since Samsung is a big competitor.

The reason it's Apple like is because they copied the EXACT colors of the iPhone 5c, as well as a very ios like os design

Xiaomi Mipad looks like iPad. Nokia N1 looks like iPad. iPhone 6 looks like HTC One M7. iOS looks like MIUI. iOS features look like from Android. Chevrolet Colorado looks like Toyota Hilux. Mazda 6 looks like Hyundai Sonata. How many lawsuits you wanna file? I suggest you to file all of them and the court won't even give a damn about you. Just stop being nitpicky and enjoy the awesome products.

Well, ur statement is actually not the case here. Since Xiaomi is a really big player in mobile industry, should'nt it be sitting on chair to design something different from this? Yeah, Xiaomi claimed that it was the new Apple of China, so it meant it must produce the Apple look-alike product too?

Xiaomi didn't even claim themselves as the new Apple of China, it was the media. "Don't call us the China's Apple." -Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi

Yes, media in China is like that. They spread false info to fool their people, to hate the US and their Allies. This is the danger of the Communist China to the world. I hope S Korea Japan India & the US stand guard in Asia Pacific to counter China's threat :(

even if it looks 100% alike, there's nothing wrong, this tablet can kill the hopeless iPad anytime anyday.

Hopeless? u're such an pure Apple hater. iPad is the reason why Android tablets should be here today. but that doens't mean that everything could be copied like living in a lawless jungle. Android is better than iOS, but becoz of these Chinese clone firms and sucha clueless fan like u took its credit away.

Bottom line is Apple can stand on their own. Mind their own business and let others mind theirs.
