Start Selling Tablet, Xiaomi Wants to Compete with iPad




Having spawned many Android smartphones which are preferred by consumers, Xiaomi developed its business with the launch of the tablet device. Unmitigated, Xiaomi targets to beat the dominance of Apple's iPad.

Xiaomi, a successful Chinese vendor makes devices that favored consumers smartphones, started selling Android tablet on July 1 in China.

Previously, CEO of Xiaomi, Lei June once said that Xiaomi will not jump on the tablet market before there is a healthy ecosystem. But now Xiaomi taking steps to jump into the tablet market by creating its own Android tablet ecosystem.

Quoted from Digitimes, it must be done according to Lei if Xiaomi wants to compete with Apple's iPad production.

Xiaomi currently has a line of Mi Pad tablet that has a screen size of 7.9 inches and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, as same as the iPad mini tablet specifications. But Mi Pad sold cheaper. For the 16 GB version, it costs around 240 U.S. dollars in China. Mi Pad also be the first tablet that carries Nvidia Tegra
K1 GPU.

Lei also said that
to make Android tablets is actually pretty easy. But according to him, the only obstacle for today's tablets is the least qualified applications and games available in tablet platforms.

In addition, although many vendors have released Android tablet on the market, but until now no one wants to raise the Android tablet market ecosystem.

"Therefore, Xiaomi ventured to make their own brand tablet in an attempt to establish a new ecosystem in the industry," said Lei.

Apple is still dominated
the tablet market. But in terms of revenue, the Android tablet is superior to the iPad.

Another Android tablet which is currently referred to as the iPad killer is Samsung's tablet, the Galaxy Tab S 8.4-inch and 10.5-inchi.
