Via Weibo, Xiaomi has sent out two comparison charts, pitting its MiPad against the new Nexus 9 and iPad Mini 3.
See them after the break.
MiPad uses 32-bit version of K1 CPU; Nexus 9 uses 64-bit. MiPad offers a version with 64GBs of internal storage; Nexus 9 maxes at 32GBs. MiPad has a microSD card slot that can accept a 128GB card; Nexus 9 has no card slot. MiPad has a 7.9-inch screen; Nexus 9 has 8.9-inch. MiPad has MIUI 6 over 32-bit Android 4.4; Nexus 9 will have pure 64-bit Android 5.0 Lollipop. The MiPad has 5MP front and 8MP back cameras; the Nexus 9 has 1.6MP front and 8MP back cameras. A 64GB MiPad costs about US$278 (direct from Xiaomi; middlemen will increase that price); a 32GB Nexus 9 will cost US$479.
The iPad Mini 3 is the iPad Mini 2 with Touch ID added. Interestingly, this second chart confirms that the MiPad K1 CPU is the 32-bit version. This chart, unlike the first, wasn’t created by Xiaomi (the Copyright notice at bottom indicates that).
