Xiaomi plans on switching to Intel for its new MiPad2 tablet?
Can Xiaomi make a dent in the tablet market like it has done with smartphones? The upstart manufacturer is apparently working on the sequel to its Xiaomi MiPad tablet. A leaked photo that appeared on Chinese social media site Weibo is of dubious pedigree. The tablet photographed shows no Xiaomi branding on the slate itself, and looks different than the OG MiPad.

If the tablet is legit, it is expected to sport the same 7.9-inch glass employed on the MiPad, with resolution of 2048 x 1536. The 2GB of RAM on the MiPad2 matches the amount of the sweet stuff employed by Xiacom on its first slab. Where there is a difference is in the silicon. Instead of the quad-core 2.2GHz NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor employed on the MiPad, the MiPad2 is expected to have a 1.8GHz Intel Atom CPU inside. Xiaomi's MIUI is running on top of Android 4.4.4. An update to Android 5.0 will come down the road in 2015.

There is no word when the Xiaomi MiPad2 will be unveiled. With all eyes on CES next month, Vegas might be the perfect place for the upstart manufacturer to introduce its new slate.

Thanks for the tip!
