    their CEO Lei Jun was asked how xiaomi plans to make money selling cheap phones at low volumes.
    his response: we are not a hardware company that relies on the sales of our phones to make money. we are an internet company.

    (what is an "internet company"?)

    Sounds as if their emphasis is on the software and networking aspect such as cloud computing / storage, mobile applications / Operating System (OS), networking equipments, targeted online advertising etc. etc.

    I bought one yesterday. I must say i am impressed so far. Once they build up their branding, the story will be different.

    The reduced price for the mi3 at 339 is not too bad for a 3G hp

    If u r in Singapore, You probably won't mind 3G once the telcos start charging for 4G as a value added services when u have to recontract.

    Like the Xiaomi Facebook.... Normally they will update when the next online sales timing and date... Sales only accept PayPal... So better create one of you don't have one.... And you have 5-10 minutes to purchase of the item is in high demand ... So look though what you would like to get... When the sales starts... Just add to cart right away.... Happy snatching... Hehehe...

    Heard there are some which suspect to be fake Redmi (including the now popular Powerbank), so careful when buying from other sources.
    Or are not made for our market, heard some version may have problem install Google Play store or some apps.
    Can get at places like Singtel shops etc at same price of $169 if directly fr Xiaomi.
