  1. Dear GOGI Sir,

    when XIAOMI MI PAD will be available in INDIA??

    I think everybody is waiting for a good and handy alternative of the LAPTOPS… 😉

    It wood be much much better if MI PAD had 3G voice calling support… 🙁

    Why there are so less players in new TABLET launch??

    A new LENOVO YOGA 2 TAB is in launch process on flipkart. specification wise it is good but it is not affordable (price Rs. 29000/-) belo Rs. 20,000/- it wood be great….

    what happened to the DUAL (ANDROID + WINDOWS) BOOT TABLETS???

    New Generation of DUAL BOOT TABLETS wood be very much useful in office work too…

    In Government and in some private organisations also, e-office system of files movement is much in consideration. so in the coming year there will be a huge Demand for such tablets on which these custom softwares can run.

    so looking forward for new and affordable tablets (YES WITH 3G FEATURE 😉 )

  2. phonearena & gsmarena claims the processor inside nexus 9 are dual core Denver nvidia & benchmark score mentioned it speed 2.5 ghz & this processor different from xiaomi tablet.

  3. hey gogi gogi its not quad core….its a dual core Denver series chipset which was designed for computers but ultimately it lands on tablets and mobiles…please update it…..

  4. No matter how great it is. No 3G No 4G…not for me…..wi-fi coverage in India is just too thin…

  5. $400 for base variant seems to be on higher side. Definitely when it reach India price will go above 30K

    At that price range there are better options available.

      1. Excuse me…
        I think you’ve gone mad.
        WTF!!?? You’re comparing that crappy mi pad with a HTC nexus. Oh common, there is nothing such as value for money. You’ll only get for what you pay.
        Xiaomi is a crap..
        Cheap quality screens.
        Everyone compared xiaomi mi3 with nexus 5.
        But, crap, when you have a nexus 5 in one hand and mi3 in other, you’ll come to know the difference. and truth that why xiaomi had priced it so low.

        1. dude,mi pad has IPS LCD screen with 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The only screen superior to this is Super Amoled display used by samsung.
          your philosophy of “You’ll only get for what you pay” is now outdated. Mi3 is not crap…its the best phone for 14K….you can call mi3 crap only if Nexus 5 is priced at 14K which is next to impossible.

          1. Well said Sachin. There are a lot of such people in our country who will never learn & Mr. Thanush is also one of them. They are unable to think properly with a cool head. They think the way the big multinational robbers such as Samsung, Apple, Sony, HTC etc. want us to think. Do not judge a product by it’s manufacturer, country of origin and how high the price is. As Mr. Thanush said, there might be some difference between the Nexus 5 & mi3 but does this difference justify the price difference of around Rs. 10000/-?

        2. You are the one who is going mad. At least have you use the mi3 to even complain? A lot of people didn’t have a problem, but your rear is fully burning. I think you’re flaming just because it’s a Chinese product.

    1. So you’re saying at above 30k you’ll get a better tablet than this? You should be kidding me!
