      And +Dual-boot + expandable storage wouldn’t be bad

    I’m glad I didn’t make the mistake to order it. It doesn’t have a GPS – a fact that I’ve found out accidentally. They never mention in the specs something that is a standard but is missing. Mobile device without a GPS – ridiculous! It would be good only for a home toy.

      I guess it depends on your individual use. i bring my tablet everywhere I go, never really have a need for GPS.

      Unless you need a standalone tablet at all times in your car or something… why would you need GPS in your tablet? Phones have GPS in them already…

        I wanted it for development and testing purposes and obtaining location is quite important in our case.

      $200 is overpriced for a Xiaomi tablet?

    Can the USB C port on this do all the usual expected functions i.e. HDMI out etc…

    Or has it just been wired for data transfer and charging???

    If the 64GB version can re-flashed with Android CyanogenMod then it is perfect.
    Hopefully those online reseller shop don’t jack off the price too much.

    I know reseller need to earn profit, but increase the price by 200% is just too damn greedy. The reason why we buy Xiaomi because it is cheap, those online resellers always increase the price very high then it become so expensive, like that then no point buying Xiaomi, might as well buy other reputable brand LOL.
