The WalkCar: Brilliant Or Fraudulent?

After the break is a video I’m having a very, very, very difficult time believing.

It shows a notebook-sized Segway-like board.

From Tablets To Drones

PadNews: Tablet market malaise, manufacturers Go? [Google Translate]

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

A flood of craptabs.

“It must be transformed, from the beginning of last year we had foreseen this trend, while other companies are also accelerate the pace of transformation, and some do it wearable, some do UAVs, we are mainly to focus on the mobile phone on.” Gu Yong told reporters the case said.

Ramos pins its hopes on the MOS1 phone, while releasing fewer tablet models.

Customs data show that Shenzhen factory swept the country 99.9 percent of UAVs exports. This year from January to May, exports of Shenzhen drones reach 16 million units, worth 750 million yuan, respectively, 69 times and 55 times last year, exports showed blowout UAV.

A flood of cheap China crapdrones is in the works.

Again, these are electronics companies, not tablet companies. None of them need a tablet product as much as Apple does.

July 22 2015: NO Xiaomi MiBand Announcement

There is zero about any new hardware on the MiBand Weibo [use Chrome browser to translate].

No other Xiaomi account mentions new hardware, either.

English-language sites that cover China also have nothing.

So WTF?

Xiaomi’s Thin Mystery Device: A TV, Not A Tablet

This is boring. See details at these sites:

GizChina: Xiaomi announces Mi TV 2S: 48 inches, Android Lollipop, and 4K for 2,999 yuan

GizmoChina: Xiaomi Unveils Mi TV2S With 48-inch 4K Display & 9.9mm Aluminum Frame

And as photos will show, only the top half is thin. What a cheat!

Where’s the MiPad 2, Xiaomi?
