Xiaomi MiPad goes on sale in India tomorrow
The Xiaomi MiPad will go on sale in India starting at noon Tuesday. The slate will be available from online retailer Flipkart, priced at the equivalent of $209 USD. Unlike other Xiaomi devices, which debuted in India via a flash sale, the Xiaomi MiPad will be the first device sold by the company in India to debut with an open sale.
In addition to the tablet, the Xiaomi Redmi 2 will be available via a flash sale on Flipkart at 2pm. That will be followed at 5pm with a flash sale of the 64GB Xiaomi Mi 4. To take part in the sale of both handsets, you will need to register on Flipkart.
The Xiaomi MiPad features a 7.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1536 x 2048. This works out to a pixel density of 326ppi. The screen size and resolution match the specs on the Apple iPad mini 3. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.2GHz NVIDIA Tegra K1 CPU with 2GB of RAM inside. The slate comes with 16GB of native storage, and if you need more memory there is a 128GB capacity microSD slot waiting for you to use it. The 8MP rear camera features an aperture of f/2.0 allowing you to snap quality pictures in low-light conditions. In addition, a 5MP front-facing snapper allows you to take selfies and use video chat. A 6700mAh battery keeps the lights on. The tablet supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
