    Hyundai T7S is already a very good tablet for this price, only battery life is too short. Will this Xiaomi tablet beat it?

    Lucky me, I’m just waiting for Pipo m9pro to be instock in next week. If Xiaomi tablet will release in next week too. Maybe I should place order to xiaomi instead.

      Yep, m9pro meets all my ideal tablet specs (10″ FullHD, 2GiB RAM, quad-core A9, GPS, 3G, big battery). The only minor nit I have is its non-usb charger, I would much prefer to have one wall charger for both my phone and my tablet.
