Though it is technically feasible to mass produce electric cars no one would do that just because it would spoil world oil economy. This will be feasible only when the world's oil wells dry out. Talk to some Product and Marketing Management guys to know more about these concepts. Take Titan watches. If a particular model of their watches becomes a hot seller they will simply discontinue them just because it would cannibalize their other models. Everything cannot be dealt with here. I end up just by saying only one thing. Think twice before you spend your hard earned money.

Xiaomi could instead charge upto 100 US $ more (than the price that is expected currently) on the high end version of the Mi Pad 3 (Pro version, I mean) and make it a complete device.
That would have been such a great option - that is, 2 models for the pad in total - A $230 base model and a $400 ($310 (currently expected price) + say, $90 extra) complete/near complete set of specs on the higher end model (LTE enabled Pro version). That would have been affordable, great choice for those who demand more from a tablet. Plus, I don't think it would strain Xiaomi's finances. And, I also do not think Xiaomi is technically incapable of achieving it. They could very well do it and make a device that would be remembered for long in the history of technology.
No, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is not worth it. It does not have Windows and it is quite a bit slower.

S3 9.7. It has got all the features as you ask for. But honestly you shouldn't compare the price since you want more. If you want more pay more.
xiaomi, let intel core M3-7Y30 not be forgotten. xiaomi is supposed to create advanced Pad.
kakanun, 27 Mar 2017yes it can...but not today...When the day arrives just assume how powerful will be the same day's laptop and desktop.

sarat meinam, 14 Mar 2017will xiaomi mi pad 3 work like a high end computer or at least as a good laptop?How can you expect your cigar lighter to function as your stove.
sarat meinam, 19 Mar 2017we don't want mediocre camera. just take it off or put a nice one plz.Not everyone like you would be ready to pay more for the tablet.

Cellular Connectivity is must needed feature. Except that this is the best tablet for the price I had ever seen.
they are not going to launch it in India in 2017. So no use of searching it on net.

Dearest unbiased knowledge followers.It is an almost PC and tablet mixture!But omissions of qualities thought being Windows Microsoft is not what people in 2017 the evolutionary year are after!!What are omissions!!!?Having no SIM slot,no NFC,no IR,no complete up to data Bluetooth 5+5 auxiliaries,no USB V3.1 + otg,...Of course better specifications than Mi2!!!Scientific view:Dearest Xiaomi will face defeat if doesn't do modifications before its release!!!With modification corrections:One of the best PC laptop tablet of 2017-18 if someone exits in Xiaomi publication relations!!My unbiased view:Xiaomi started very well with 6 unique quality devices but after RN4 mediatek down clock downgrading of qualities have been started based on un-scientific wrong calculations of todays public alertness!!!?Just hopefully Xiaomi returns to itself of being the best Chinese starter brand but not,...Thanks the awaken!Justice Rights.Omid12Omidvar.whom cares about quality of all brands!
blaster, 05 Mar 2017cellular with intel isnt quite as easy as it would be with an arm nvidia/qualcomm/whatever cpu. Still, I would want Xiaomi to make Mi Pad 3 (atleast the higher version, if they plan to launch multiple models) to be LTE enabled. They should do it..It's 2017 and the next update to Mi Pad after this one (if it launches) will not be until 2019. Internet connectivity on-the-go (and at all times) is very much needed, now-a-days. It so much adds to the utility a device can offer. In developing countries where public Wi-Fi Hotspot network is too under-developed while LTE connectivity is decent and steadily improving, a non-LTE device is such a deal breaker.
