Xiaomi MiKey adds another button to your Android device

On April 16, 2014, in Gadgets, by Mike Jefferson

Last year we wrote about device called Pressy that connects to your Android device and works like a button with a specific function. Today we have a similar device that comes from Xiaomi, so let’s see what it can do.

Xiaomi is famous for its smartphones, but this time Xiaomi has released a special accessory for your smartphone. MiKey is a tiny device that connects to your headphone jack, and it works like a button, and you can add all sorts of functionality to it. For example, you can set it to dial a specific number, launch an app or you can assign any other function to it. As you can see, MiKey works exactly the same as Pressy, but it’s a lot cheaper.

MiKey is currently priced at $0.79, while a single Pressy costs $27. We have to say that MiKey looks like a Pressy copy, and there might be some legal action against Xiaomi. As for availability, MiKey should be available for sale in China.
