And it has a sleek new look. This won’t be confused with earlier versions!
A MIUI forum post listing all the products Xiaomi introduced in 2014 (I guess nothing is coming in the next nine days?).
More details at the Pipo forum [Google Translate].
Will it keep Rockchip’s MultiWindow Android 2.0? We might have to wait a while to find out.
Updated after the break
Four dual-boot (or “dual system”) models: V820w, V891w, V919 3G Air, and V116w. It’s unknown if these will be separate editions or if past buyers will be able to update their firmware. Details tomorrow.
Apparently ZOL is involved in this, as members of their forum have a chance to participate and twenty-four of those attendees will be given a free Nokia N1 tablet(!) [Google Translate].
The event will take place January 7 in Beijing at the Shangri-La New House, Grand Ballroom.
The link (use Chrome) mentions the history of Xiaomi valuations:
2010 – US$250M
2011 – US$1B
2012 – US$4B
2013 – US$10B
I’m beginning to think this company is going to need all the money it can get its hands on. For patent licenses and design infringement court cases.

The only surprise is that the back camera isn’t condemned. But the samples offered as proof are reduced in size, so I’m unconvinced.

But it’s notable for these reasons:
1) As Intel’s first partner in China, Ramos has really been trying to improve quality control and create a distinct look
2) It’s the second dual-boot tablet from Ramos
2) It has 64GBs of storage
