It would be helpful to inform that Mi Pad2's memory cannot be expanded (unlike MIPad1) for the potential buyers thinking that they can expand the memory by inserting memory card.......

Dear Super Moderator. We want to know most important thing - when will we see Global ROM for MiPad 2? Chinesse version is very poor for us. It has so many bugs, lags, unnecessary apps and another unpleasant things. Even Mi Fit doesn't work! It's not supported in Google Play. Please answer.

Comment

GR33dyBlackie hi sir. until the day Mi Pad2 become available officially globally, there might be a chance of official global ROM. as on date, we do not have information. please do stay tuned in the forum  15:04, Mar-04-2016
