The tablet features the powerful Tegra K1 SoC

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun was not so sure about the development of tablets two years back in time and he clearly stated that so far he had no plans of making tablets. However, this notion might have changed over the period of these two years because the CEO made an announcement today that a tablet was under the works all this time and it had been kept in the shadows.

The Mi Pad has just been unveiled in Beijing and considering that the tablet did take its time on being developed, the product features some strong points. The 16 GB version is will be available for CN¥1,499 (about $240) and the 64 GB model will cost CN¥1,699 (about $270). For those who had believed the CEO back then would be surprised by this new development but some of us were given the hint when MIUI was released for the Nexus 7 back in March.

However, the surprise element does remain and that is the powerful Tegra K1 SoC which this newly developed slate is going to feature. Apart from that the Android tablet from Xiaomi is going to feature 7.9-inch display with a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution which is quite impressive. Other features include a 6,700mAh battery, stereo speakers, 2 GB RAM, 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 radios.
