Xiaomi’s Redmi launched the Redmi Pad in India last week for INR12,999 ($157/€163) and now the company has launched the Redmi Writing Pad in India, which is not a proper Android tablet but a cheaper one. A board that kids and adults can use for note taking and doodling.
The Redmi Writing Pad has an 8.5-inch LCD, and the Xiaomi screen emits no light and mimics the appearance of colors on paper, preventing eye fatigue after long-term use.

The Redmi writing pad comes with a pressure-sensitive stylus, which lets you switch between different stroke sizes to create different shades. The stylus weighs 5g and comes with a slide-and-attach mechanism for easy access.

Once you’re done doodling or taking notes, you can clear the screen by tapping the orange button once. There is also a one-tap lock on the Redmi Writing Pad to prevent content from being erased from the screen.

However, it looks like the writing pad doesn’t allow you to sync its content across your devices, which makes it even more useful.
Completing this board is the CR2016 replaceable button cell advertised to let you write up to 20,000 pages.
The Redmi Writing Pad comes in black color and is already available for purchase in India for INR599 ($7/€7) via Xiaomi’s official Indian website.
