UMi have a lot going on around them at the moment what with the X1s launch, X2 delay and development for the S1, Mini and Max, so have they been putting in the extra hours to also bring us the UMi Tab 3G tablet too?
After posting this article we had a chat with our friends at UMi here in China who have confirmed that UMi are NOT making a tablet! This isn’t to say that UMimobile, the Indian distributors, aren’t planning to rebrand another tablet as a UMi device, but the actual owners of the UMi brand and makers of the X1, X1s and X2 won’t be manufacturing it!
The saga continues as UMi are now handing the following statement out which does mention a tablet!

We’re waiting to hear back from UMi regarding this tablet and will let you know what they say. In the meantime we have some friendly advice for UMimobile, why not concentrate on launching the X1s and UMi X2 phones before leaking details of more device? Just a thought.
