A reminder that this would be the tablet’s price if Xiaomi were to sell it to Americans via their Mi dotcom site:
Don’t agree to the price the gouging middlemen want! Don’t encourage them. Without demand, they’ll have to drop their prices.
Also, my advice is to wait for the rumored dual-OS Android/Windows version. Perhaps Xiaomi will boost the RAM to 4GBs. The price will probably go higher (1499 or 1599 yuan?), but it’ll be worth it.
As a side note, this is the damn tablet Best Buy should be stocking, not that crap under their Insignia house brand and their OEM partner brand Digiland.
