Xiaomi Mi Pad Tablet

Xiaomi Mi Pad

Chinese electronics company Xiaomi has introduced a 7.9-inch tablet called Mi Pad, which to the casual observer could be easily mistaken for an Apple iPad mini. But the Mi Pad is actually powered by a heavily modified version of Google’s Android operating system, called MIUI (pronounced “Me You I”).

The Mi Pad will launch in China for about $240 (USD), and there is currently no timetable to bring it to the U.S. market. The iPad wannabe has the same screen size and display resolution (2048×1536) as iPad mini with Retina display, and is a design copy in almost every way. Mi Pad’s dimensions are a mere 1mm thicker and wider, while weighing just 30 grams more than iPad mini. In addition, it’s available color options are an exact clone of the iPhone 5c color choices.
