Xiaomi doesn’t ask questions on Weibo for fun. Something’s in the works.
The original MiPad was announced on May 15, 2014. We’re rushing towards it being a year old. The specs still hold up but it’s being outclassed by thinner and lighter tablets.
By the way, people replying to the Weibo mainly asked for 8.9, 9.7, and 10.1 inches.
