Apple faces some major obstacles in its ambitions to conquer China — it’s had to deal with both Samsung spamming out gadgets left and right and also upstart Chinese vendors such as Xiaomi that have been pumping out smartphones with strong specs at dirt-cheap prices. And now it looks like Xiaomi is planning on cutting into Apple’s tablet business as well because has spotted leaked pictures posted on Chinese social networking website Weibo that purportedly show the Xiaomi MiPad, a new tablet that the Chinese vendor will probably sell for the same stunningly low prices that it’s used to make its smartphones such a success in its homeland.
