Meet Xiaomi new Mi Pad 2 and Redmi Note 3 devices

Xiaomi Mi Pad 2Xiaomi is releasing two new devices for the end of the year, the Mi Pad 2 and Redmi Note 3. The prices of these two devices are low and the specifications quite decent. It’s unlikely that Xiaomi will be bringing either device to the US or Europe, but in a few years’ time Xiaomi may be willing to branch into new markets.

The Mi Pad 2 comes in 16GB and 64GB. 32GB would make more sense than 16GB, but manufacturers continue to push 16GB devices. 16GB is often too small for music, apps and files. 32GB gives users much more space. There was a rumour that the Mi Pad 2 would dual-boot Windows 10 and Android, but this feature didn’t end up making the final product. The Android version is less expensive than the Windows 10 version, and currently it’s difficult to say which OS would be best.

Xiaomi Mi PadToday, during an event that took place at Beijing, Xiaomi launched their first ever tablet, called Mi Pad. According to reports, it is a plastic iPad clone, a point that was obvious from the name of the tablet.

The Chinese company has become well known for two things: offering low cost alternatives with the mobile market, and blatantly ripping off popular products to make their own. Despite that, they are a valid player gaining increasing traction in a market where low costs devices are in high demand.

Looks-wise, it is pretty much an iPad mini. The brightly colored plastic has a large screen with a thin border and rounded sides. There are three buttons on the bottom to get to the menu screen, go back and pull up settings.  Honestly, other than the colors (which are a bit brighter) it is indistinguishable on sight from high-end tablets.
