Xiaomi's first tablet could sport a 7.85-inch screen with 1536 x 2048 pixels, Intel or Nvidia might power it

According to Focus Taiwan, Xiaomi is currently in talks with both Intel and Nvidia, and it should choose one of them to supply SoCs for its first tablet. Reportedly, the upcoming slate may feature a 7.85-inch display with 1536 x 2048 pixels - thus rivaling Apple’s iPad Mini 2, which sports a 7.9-inch display with a similar resolution.
Focus Taiwan has it from a Taipei-based researcher that Xiaomi is planning to release its first tablet in the third or fourth quarter of this year. The device might cost as low as $160.
Yesterday, we told you that Xiaomi bought the Mi.com domain for $3.6 million. The domain will be used to promote the company’s products around the world - including in the ten new markets where Xiaomi is going to expand in the near future. Most probably, we’re going to see Xiaomi’s tablet presented via the new website at some point.
At the moment, Xiaomi is one of China’s most successful smartphone makers. The company plans to sell no less than 60 million handsets throughout 2014. Its tablet-related ambitions are likely high as well, although it remains to be seen what its first attempt in this regard has to offer.

!!!!! So its probably going to have iPad Mini with Retina Display specs, for a third of the price? Nice. Apple is going to be f*cked up. I see a court case coming up for "copying" their screen size and resolution. ;P

Some phones that look similar to the Apple hardware, similar to certain UI elements of the software and now they're going with the same resolution of their tablets? Chinese OEMs still seem to have the imitation game going. I'm tired of hearing all this slack Samsung gets for mimicking Apple. Then again, these guys aren't well known anyway
