    I want budget tablet (at max 20000 INR) for reading and some basic editing. My requirements:
    1. Good battery life
    2. 4 GB RAM
    3. Better multiasking (split screen view)
    4. Good processor
    5. At least 64GB storage

    I was searching for Mi Pad 3. It runs Android. And fortunately Microsoft have good office apps on android. But is not yet launched in India.

    So I googled for alternatives and for more info.
    I realized that Mi Pad 3's MIUI 9 does not yet have split screen view. So it was deal breaker. Also I realized that I wont be having any Android updates. So I was quick to look for Windows tablet.

    But then there is simply no budget Windows tablet in India. I wish to have tablet which will Windows update for at least five years. Or may be I will install Latest Windows from USB, so that I can always have latest build on tablet.

    I come across fact that Mi Pad 2 ran Windows:

    And this awesome multitasking in iOS 11 with iPad:

    So I realized if I can have full Windows on tablet, it will be a lot beautiful than both.

    I read recently that Windows on snapdragon will have huge battery life. How long we should wait to get such budget Windows tablet? Or is there any such available already?

    I can't speak for availability in India but the Windows on ARM devices were supposed to become available Q4 of 2017, so should be any time now.

    But still haven't seen any confirmed release dates or information on devices yet.
