More details of the purported Xiaomi Android tablet have emerged, stating that the first prototypes are currently undergoing testing at Foxconn.
According to reports on Chinese sites, and from our very own sources, Xiaomi are working on a 7-inch Android tablet, and it should launch this year, but don’t expect it at the August 16th press event.
August 16th is the big day when Xiaomi are expected to launch a number of products including the flagship Xiaomi Mi3, the entry-level red rice phone, a Smart TV and their new tablet. However, it isn’t likely the tablet will be ready in time for the August date as Foxconn have only just begun testing of the first prototypes with reports suggesting that only the body shape has been finalised.
Full details have yet to be released, and only we know for now is that the Xiaomi tablet should have a 7-inch display, run a version of MIUI and cost just 999 Yuan ($160).
