The specs looks great. I believe the value should be quite decent.

Apple won't do it cheaper one. It is just like BMW or Mercedes. If Proton and QQ can do the same thing, you won't see the big guys following suit. All these are marketing strategy.
Well I guess you misunderstand... what I am implying is that there are many out there who are willing to try to follow apple style, with a cheaper mind sense. Apple should really looked into it to do something which fixed on their price point... the can sell premium price... but at least give a premium outlook and features. Their price point right now does not really reflect much on their product rather their branding...

No doubt the hardware spec is pretty pretty good and awesome. and bang for bucks due to its pricing. 1 of the first tablet is using the Nvidia K1 chip.

However, it does weight a bit heavier than its "competitor" ipad mini .. it weighted 360gm according to the Engadget youtube video than ipad mini of 331gm.

well you guys can said it will not make any difference, wont able to feel it but mipad body is made up of plastic , while ipad mini is aluminium.. shouldn't be plastic will be much much lighter than aluminium.

Dun forget the battery, some of the weight comes from battery, if ipad mini is light 331gm, its components must have been shrink down much more and making more space for battery.

While this this tablet might have a bigger battery to support for at least 1 day of use. This is just my guess. Other guess will be ipad is able to balance down the weight of the device and yet still provide sufficient battery. While MiPad would just put a bigger battery to support sufficient battery without trying to shrink down weight component.

The bad thing about this MiPad is that it doesn't have a SIM card slot..so there's no 3g/4g etc. Only WiFi. You will need to have your android phone to create a Wifi network when you're outside.
I saw an article previously discussing about the MiPad. Apparently, they were planning for a tablet with a particular processor in mind when a couple of other brands became available due to costing. Can't remember, but I think is Qualcomm and Intel processors. So we might see more than 1, probably 3 types of MiPads in the market, just like there are 2 versions of Mi-3.

Before purchase, it is important to have a chance to play with it.
