Finally it is here! I first mentioned Xiaomi's plan to extend to overseas markets in my review on Xiaomi MI-2. Few days ago, the mid range Android phone, Redmi has been selling in Singapore. With the price tag of just SGD 169 (~ RM 439) and the nearing-to-high-end specifications, it is not surprising that Redmi is sold out in 8 minutes. You can read the review by CNET here. In conjuction with this launch, Xiaomi Singapore site has been set up with web store selling Redmi accessories.
To me, the interesting news is Xiaomi MI-3, the flagship phone by Xiaomi, will be launching on 7 March in Singapore for a rock-bottom price of SGD 419 (~ RM 1088). Similarly, you can read Xiaomi MI-3 review by CNET here. If you understand Mandarin, you should watch the video review by Zealer.
With my pleasant experience with Xiaomi MI-2, I could foresee the success of Xiaomi in Asian markets.
