good decision not including the sim slot. cellular services are one of the biggest toll on battery and also it helps in keeping the prices low. however they should have included the GPS. with offline support increasing (google/ here), it could have been a good navigation tool. otherwise a very good offering IMHO. with windows 10 and a good keyboard, it can easily become a laptop/ desktop alternate for light office work and multimedia
Sim card - not necessary for using internet. Use wifi (if travelling then give hotspot from mobile)
Good config, a cellular network integration would have increased the price of this device. (good call in avoiding it)
It's not at all a problem if no sim card slot. Get a wifi dongle, than you are all set to go.
It should have GPS support.
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2015The 64gb model has the option to get Windows 10, it doesn't run both If dual system... That will be best..
The only thing I don't like about this device is that it lack of sim slot.
No point to buy this Tablet if it does not have sim support. Very much essential in country like India where you may not have Wi-Fi access everywhere.
Sandipan , 25 Nov 2015Is it run dual operating system???? I'm confused about thatThe 64gb model has the option to get Windows 10, it doesn't run both
Zedorkyd, 25 Nov 2015Does it support OTG like mipad 1 ?Highly likely, but it has type c connector so you might need correct cable!
early, 24 Nov 2015if xiaomi is going to launch mi pad 2 in india please make sure that to provide sim slots.othe... moreThere's no point in including a sim slot in a tablet; as they are not meant for that. As far as internet is considered you can probably use a dongle if it supports OTG.
Eagerly waiting for this tab.. The specifications are good and mi can b trusted. But it lacks sim slot. Without sim slot the tab will never be an option for purchase.
