    They should be building detachable ultrabook tablets. Seems to be the way of the other manufacturers.

    A real laptop is a lot more better than one of those hybrids. Also, am I the only one who finds it surprising that Xiaomi have yet to tread in the tablet part of the market?

    All Chinese manufacturer have this tendency to announce all high end device ages before they are released… this is believe is a marketing strategy just to make people believe that they are not far behind Samsung or apple… but in reality they are years behind yhr big companies …

        Just admit you’ve never used a Xiaomi product. Truly, anyone who has ever used a Xiaomi product will know what true quality and value for money means. Trust me, once you’ve used a Xiaomi phone, you’ll never look back. Ever.

      Don’t underestimate Xiaomi. I’m not a fan of their phones nor of their deceptive marketing, but unlike the brands typically covered by this website, Xiaomi has the capital to back up whatever they feel like doing today, or next week, or next year. And in the unlikely event they run out, Lei Jun can call up one or more within his circle of friends and secure another round of funding.
