After three years on the sidelines, Xiaomi finally upgraded its tablet series. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series has been one of the most anticipated tablets in recent times. On August 16th, we had the first official sales of this tablet. According to the sales report, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series sold over 200,000 units in the first five minutes. This shows the popularity of this tablet. Today, Xiaomi activated another round of sales for this tablet but it is still very difficult to buy.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series is difficult to purchase
Regarding the availability of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series, Xiaomi has an official response. According to Wang Hua (Public Relations Department of Xiaomi Group), the company has been receiving complaints that the Mi Pad 5 series is difficult to buy. These reports claim that the accessories (Touch Pen and Keyboard) are even harder to purchase. While he assured netizens that there will be more sales, he noted that the stock of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series is quite large. He also assured users that it will be more convenient to purchase this tablet in the future
Of course, this should belong to the superposition of the needs accumulated by everyone after many years and the effect of this generation of products beyond expectations. I believe that it will become more and more convenient for everyone to buy after the futures are up.
As for the Touch Pen and Keyboard, Wang Tang noted that the ratio of accessories should not be 1:1. Thus, if the tablet is hard to buy, then the accessories will naturally be harder. Despite two rounds of sales as well as pre-sales, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series is still difficult to purchase. This device comes with a 1999 yuan starting price.
At present, Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 has gone through many rounds of sales, and it is still in short supply, with a starting price of 1999 yuan.
