Xiaomi’s Mi Pad 2 apparently sold out under a minute in China


Last month, Xiaomi introduced its Mi Pad 2. The company’s tablet comes in two variants: one running Windows 10 (not Windows 10 Mobile), and the other running Android. The company started selling the Mi Pad 2’s 64GB variant (the device comes in 16GB and 64GB variants) on Monday. Now, according to the folks over at GizmoChina, the device was out of stock within a minute of launch. Yep, the device’s stock ran out in just under a minute — which is, of course, quite surprising. Xiaomi could have underestimated the demand of the device, which could explain why the stock ran out very quickly.

For those wondering, the Mi Pad 2 is thinner than its predecessor (8.5mm) with a thickness of 6.96mm. The device weighs in at only 322 grams, which is 38 grams lighter than the original Mid Pad. The device packs a 7.9-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2048×1635 pixels and 326ppi. Under the hoods, there is a 2.24GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8500 quad-core chipset and 2GB LPDDR3 RAM. For the camera, Xiaomi is delivering an 8-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The device also comes with a 6190mAh battery, which, according to Xiaomi, offers about 12 hours of battery life.

Xiaomi is selling the 16GB variant for $156, and the 64GB variant for only $203. The device comes in Dark Grey, as well as Champagne Gold. It will be interesting to see if the company plans to bring the device to other countries in the near future — however, that may not happen anytime soon. Nonetheless, tell us what you think of the Mi Pad 2 in the comment section below.
