Xiaomi new slate looks like an iPad Mini but acts like a Surface

Techradar : You'd be forgiven if you picked up Xiaomi's MiPad 2 and mistook it for Apple's iconic iPad Mini 4. Both tablets share a 7.9-inch screen size, all-metal construction and a 2,048 x 1,536 pixel resolution (or what Apple calls Retina).

To mimic Apple's reversible Lightning connector, Xiaomi equips the MiPad 2 with a reversible USB Type-C connector, which should provide power and expansion capabilities to the tablet. Like the iPad, the MiPad 2 doesn't have an expandable SD or microSD card slot, so you'll have to rely on the USB-C port to connect additional storage.

However, the similarities end there. Unlike the iPad Mini 4, which runs Apple's mobile-centric iOS operating system, the MiPad 2 can be configured to run either Android or Windows 10. Powering Xiaomi's iPad clone is a 64-bit 2.2GHz Atom X5-Z8500 processor that's part of Intel's Cherry Trail family.
