Xiaomi's Tegra K1-based Mi Pad is now available in India, with the 16GB model listed exclusively on Flipkart for Rs. 12,999 ($210).
Unlike the flash sales model undertaken by the Chinese vendor for several of its handsets such as the Mi 4, Xiaomi will sell the Mi Pad in open sale without the need for registration on Flipkart. The model currently available in India features 16GB internal storage, although there is a microSD card slot available for users looking to expand storage.
In terms of specs, the Mi Pad offers a 7.9-inch screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and a 4:3 ratio, quad-core 2.2GHz Tegra K1 CPU, 2GB RAM, 8MP camera at the back, 5MP front shooter, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and a massive 6,700mAh battery. Software-wise, it comes with MIUI 6, which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat, and includes the Google Play Store and other mobile services by the search giant such as Gmail, Chrome, YouTube and Search out of the box.
The aggressive pricing makes the tablet an ideal device for anyone looking to invest in an Android slate. Indian readers, how many of you are interested in picking up the Xiaomi Mi Pad? Let us know in the comments below.
