The company behind the popular Android ROM MIUI, Xiaomi, has just started selling its latest Android tablet, the MiPad in China. Within the first four minutes of the MiPad going on sale, the company sold a staggering 50,000 units, which is approximately 208 sales per second.
Not only is the MiPad extremely cheap, at CN¥1,499 ($240) for the 16GB version, and CN¥1,699 for the 64GB model, but also features top of the line specs. In fact, the MiPad is the first ever tablet to ship with a Nvidia Tegra K1 Quad Core Processor, clocked at 2.2GHz. It also comes with a 6700mAh battery, 2GB RAM, a 2048 x 1536 7.9″ display, a 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera.
The MiPad comes in 5 colours and is designed to be a much cheaper competitor to the iPad. Unfortunately, it is currently only available in China and there is no word on an international release yet.
