Xiaomi is becoming a well known Chinese brand in the U.S. with devices like the all new Mi Pad 2. For less than $250 you can pre-order the all metal, ultra thin, Android 5.1, 64-bit, 7.9″ 2048 x 1536 (326 ppi) IPS Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 at Gearbest.com. The days of spending $400-800 on tablets are far behind us with examples like this.
7.9″ hits the sweet spot for tablets – The iPad Mini is exactly the same size as the Mi Pad 2 but is twice the price with an identical IPS high resolution display. Why pay more for less? The Mi Pad 2 runs Android 5.1 which is the same version that Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Tab S2 Android tablets run. There really is no longer any reason to pay outrageous prices for tablets these days. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 even comes with the latest USB type-C standard which Google’s most recent Nexus devices come with.
If you want to look for a weakness with the Mi Pad 2, you simply will not find one. At $250 you will get 64GB of internal storage, or for about $50 less you can get the 16GB version. It comes in Gold and Silver.
