Mi Pad 2’sold out in minutes

by on30 December 2015

Underestimated demand

Xiaomi is kicking itself after it released its Mi Pad 2 in China and flogged its entire stock in a few minutes. It can only be that Xiaomi could have underestimated the demand of the device,

The company’s tablet comes in two variants: one running Windows 10  and the other running Android.  The Mi Pad 2 is thinner than its predecessor (8.5mm) with a thickness of 6.96mm. The device weighs in at only 322 grams, which is 38 grams lighter than the original Mid Pad.

It has a 7.9-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2048×1635 pixels and 326ppi. It is based around a 2.24GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8500 quad-core chipset and 2GB LPDDR3 RAM. Xiaomi has an 8-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The device also comes with a 6190mAh battery, which offers 2 hours of battery life.

Perhaps the reason it sold out was the price. Xiaomi is selling the 16GB variant for $156, and the 64GB variant for only $203. Still dont expect it to ever arrive in the West.  It looks like Xiaomi will have its work cut out with the Chinese market.
