Back at CES 2014, NVIDIA took the wraps off its Tegra 4 successor, the Tegra K1. Since then, we've been waiting for the first device running this next-gen chip to hit the scene. Looks like Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is the first to take advantage of K1 with its first tablet, the MiPad.


If there's one thing to be said about the MiPad, it's that it looks a lot like an iPad Mini. Not to disappoint under the hood, it's also spec'd comparatively to Apple's smaller tablet, featuring a similar resolution and the like:

  • 7.9-inch 2048x1536 display
  • Tegra K1 processor with 192 graphic processing cores
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16/64GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 8MP rear camera, 5MP front (both f/2.0 aperture)
  • MIUI
  • Six color option: black, white, green, blue, yellow, and pink

As a Xiaomi product, the MiPad is of course running the company's proprietary interface, MIUI. This version is said to have been designed from the ground up specifically for the larger screen, though it should still be familiar to anyone who has used MIUI in the past.

Like most Xiaomi products, it's unlikely that we'll ever see the MiPad outside of China. That's a bummer, too, as it's very reasonably priced for what it is - $240 USD for the 16GB model and $270 for 64GB. For more info on the MiPad, check out the links below.
