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.
Thanks for the tip!

And you know what, this is gonna sell out in less than a second. Xiaomi gets the pricing so right and tempts the average buyer into wanting it even if they might not need a tab

Yea, it will only work for cheap people. Like all Xiaomi products, it will be unoptimized and pathetic batterylife. After using *a few* Xiaomi devices myself, I know that only thing good about Xiaomi is the price. Rest all things are BS.

I bought 4 XiaoMi RedMi Note. Every single one is a positive experience. If i end up with even one bad experience i would not recommend it to my family and friends. I don't think anyone so stupid to buy a few XiaoMi when they think its crap.

I dunno if Indians would be willing to spend their hard earned money in the Xiaomi App market ...... I know a bunch of Indian colleagues and they never really buy their apps lol If Xiaomi gets most of their their profits from software, then what's the point here?
