Xiaomi Punk’d The Press: No Tablet Yet

Despite the Xiaomi-fed hype that strongly hinted at the introduction of a tablet today in China, instead what the company released was the long-rumored “Red Rice” phone [Google English].


To me it looks like a cross between a shrunken Nexus 7 and Nokia’s design style.

This is Xiaomi’s “low-end” phone, their equivalent to the rumored “iPhone 5c.”

It has a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 IPS screen, uses a 1.5GHz MediaTek 6589T (T for Turbo) CPU, and has 1GB of RAM and other phone-like stuff that I really don’t give a damn about especially since they misled everyone to think a tablet was being introduced today. It will go on sale August 12th with an initial production run of ten million.
