Xiaomi dares with electronic ink readers with its newly introduced Xiaomi Mi Reader that has just appeared in Chinese stores. An electronic book with a 6-inch screen that includes an Allwinner SoC specially designed for E-BOOK and that includes Android 8.1 as the operating system.
From what we see, it has several pre-installed apps (for now, external ones cannot be installed), among which we see a office suite that allows us to read documents from this suite as well as the most common formats such as epub, txt, pdf, docx .. .. Also includes support for cloud services, although only available in China. An interesting bet of Xiaomi with a reader with good benefits and that will undoubtedly fall in price shortly to compete with the Amazon Kindle.
