August 16th approaches and as any self-respecting Xiaomi fan will know that is the date Xiaomi are expected to launch a bunch of great products including the Xiaomi tablet.
As with all future Xiaomi products, rumours have been piling up regarding the Xiaomi tablet from built-in 3G, 7-inch displays, MTK processors and now even a Tegra 3 chip.
Todays details come by way of rather dubious looking specification slides and images, which we aren’t entirely sure a genuine. Anyway were as excited as most about the possibility of the Mipad and find the hardware details quite interesting.
Gizchina News of the week
Just as with all the other rumours these specs show a 7-inch 720p display, built-in 3G packed in to a iPad mini styled ultra-portable mini tablet. Earlier reports suggested that the Xiaomi tablet would run on a Mediatek MT8125 chip however these details tell of a 1.2Ghz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 1GB RAM and 16GB memory. To top it all off a 13 mega-pixel rear camera acts as the main camera.
The Xiaomi tablet is thought to cost 999 Yuan ($160) when it goes on sale in China and will likely launch around the same time as the Xiaomi Red Rice we reported on earlier and the Xiaomi Mi3.[ Source ]
