Xiaomi seems to have a soft corner for the Indian market. It has launched the first Mi Pad, its first tablet for the Indian market. Forget the costly iPad or the Galaxy Tab, Mi Pad is a tablet that the masses can afford and enjoy.

Called the Apple of the Eastern markets, Xiaomi is taking its title seriously. Xiaomi Unveils Mi PadUntil now, we had sniffed a lot of Apple inspirations in myriad Xiaomi items but this Mi Pad indeed impresses with its 7.9-inch tab and overall design. Shell of the tablet is plastic but one tends to start enjoying after some time. The bezel evokes memories of the iPad Mini. The touch responsiveness is quick for the IPS display.

Other interesting specs of the Mi Pad are its resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels along with 326 ppi pixel density and 4:3 aspect ratio. Viewing videos and playing games is a pleasure on the Mi Pad given that there are no frame drops or lags on the device.

More Xiaomi Mi Pad features:

  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB storage expandable up to 128 GB
  • 6,700 mAh battery

There is a damper to the device though. It only offers Wi-Fi connectivity support. However, the price of the gadget more than makes up for it.
