Both Nokia N1 and Xiomi Mi Pad are small sized tablets targeting China. Check out Nokia’s pages for the N1 to show the N1 site in Chinese.
Xiomi’s Mi phones are insanely good iPhone clones (some how legit) from design to the iOS looking OS but at a fraction of the Apple price.
They also have a tablet, the Mi Pad – an iPad Mini/iPhone 5C mix.
The 16GB and 64GB versions undercut the iPad Mini but are similarly priced to the Nokia N1. The 16GB Mi Pad is 240USD, with the 64GB version at 275USD. The Nokia N1 is extremely well priced then at $249 for an all aluminium, slimmer, lighter frame.
You’d think then perhaps that with Nokia’s colourful approach, the Xiomi Mi Pad is actually what a Nokia tablet (or at least a different line of Nokia tablets) might have looked like.
Both are being heavily compared to the iPad mini (although if you consider Nokia’s past devices, the N1 is very much like the 925 too). But at almost half the price for what could essentially give the same or better experience, it might stand a good chance in this very saturated market.
