      I’m glad it’s not a 10″ tablet as I recently bought the Onda V975m and I would’ve been really annoyed!!! lol Perhaps they will do a larger one next year and I can upgrade then. Anyone know what the Antutu benchmark for this is??

    Not a fan of the aspect ratio but that aside the pricing is not great , not China great for sure. We’ll see soon what the Nexus 8 has to offer, hopefully Google won’t be pushing prices up again.

    Where are the other Xiaomi news???

    No news about Redmi Note WCDMA, MIUI V6, Kitkat for the Redmi? Mei shi la.
    So the Mipad is only available in Apple iPhone 5c colors?? Strange is see black in the photos but not in the list of available colors. Wish they kept their coloring schemes more like the Mi3 or Hongmi.
    Ohh well now only wait until it becomes available.

    This is gonna be a 160$ beast!
    Edit: ups didn’t see it was gonna be 240$…. Still a fair price though for top notch specs, but definitely gonna be pricey for international buyers

    amazing price for the specs, however tegra k1 needs some time to get along with the softwares and games, so I’ll just wait until the time you can buy it

    Always been a big xiaomi fan ever since I got their first phone the m1. But I think that they have gone too far with the copying of design cues from apple. The presentation, the screen/aspect, the casing, the camera position and even the tablet version of MIUI, especially the icon style/placement and blurred wallpapers/backgrounds. Ill be surprised if apple don’t sue. Its just too close for comfort. Had hoped they would move away from the iOS style in the latest MIUI.
