The base model of the iPad is cheap ... moreNo way, the iPad norwadays is still arriving with 32gb not expandable storage, very low amount of Ram memory too. The iPad air has only 64gb of ram and the price of the 256gb version it's just absurd for a tablet.
iPad are ridiculously expensive, the iPad pro which is what Xiaomi is trying to compete with costs as much as a laptop and that is just unacceptable.

Afterusing mipad 1 and mipad 4, i need to say its software experience is lousy with a lot of ads. Second, they will never ever update their tablet software at all. Thanks xiaomi, for making me decide to switch to ipad

when it will be launch in Indonesia?

[deleted post]Aha, the hater troll with his senseless drivels and lies again. Seriously, I would beware of karma if I were you.

Great spec for the price but 11" tablet.
But they try to advertise this as 11" semi-laptop which somehow didn't have MicroSD card and 3.5mm jack?

I'm in the market to find upgrade from my MiPad4, while 11" is a bit too big for my need the two things that they lack of killed my interest in this thing.
The same reason why i hold on to my ol MiPad 7.9 (gen 1) for quite sometime until MiPad4 came along. I need MicroSD slot expansion for my MediaCenter device.

A decent specs tablet with $400 to $500 price range is nice. Can't wait for gsmarena to review it. Please.m

bulbulito.bayagbag, 10 Aug 2021I dont think the IP Laws in china are that strict compared ... moreThey used to dominate the smartphone market as well. Xiaomi was no one. Now xiaomi is sitting at #1 beating both apple and Samsung.
They were copying phones earlier during redmi note 5 times. Now they've one of the best designs/setup in smartphone. If Xiaomi takes tablet market seriously; apple and Samsung will get history

abitcuriousabitgeek, 10 Aug 2021To be frank, 50 MP on a tablet is a bit overkill, it's... moreAgreed. But if they put that 50MP camera on the selfie shooter instead, it would've probably be more useful.

Waiting for the review, I guess the 3 things which would make it standout would be the display, battery and software, once they get the flying colors. Its all done with ipad and S7 tab. A lot of people complaining about the price,but I think Xiaomi has now a leg room to increase it a little to make it more competitive, cmon for that price range closest thing you could get would be lenovo p11 which has the sd662 for the vanilla mi pad 5. You could get an ipad for additional 150.

Anyway, there are many people who are not interested in Apple's operating system and prefer Android, we no longer talk about the price variable, which is a different topic.

It's just that well spec-ed Chrome OS devices are pretty expensive. Or Windows. Since Win 11 will support ARM much better, non-Apple tablets can succeed with that. I honestly don't see a reason for high spec android tablets when there are a lack of professional applications for it. Video cutting for instance is pretty bad with Android since there is just a very crippled version of Adobe Premiere.
