According to news reports in Taiwan the Xiaomi tablet, or Zimi (purple rice) will be launched tomorrow and that mass production of the 7.9-inch Android slate has been passed over to Foxconn.

Like the Xiaomi Mi3, specification details are sketchy and two possible processors have been linked to the device, a quad-core Mediatek MT6589T SoC with built-in 3G and possibly even a Nvida Tegra 4!

2 possible prices have also been suggest with the MT6589T tablet rumoured to cost 999 Yuan ($160) while a more powerful Tegra 4 version would cost slightly more at 1299 Yuan ($212).

        I’d rather choose BayTrail version 🙂 with android OS and unlocked bootloader.
        Someone promised them for $150, if i remember correctly. (It was Intel, was it?)
