Xiaomi Phone is a mobile phone designed by the Xiaomi Tech Company, which is created by Lei Jun, CEO of Kingsoft. Xiaomi is a high-end mobile phone that has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 (dual core, 1.5GHz) as its CPU and a Adreno 220 as its GPU, but its price (RMB1999/around USD310) is less then half of what most phones with a dual-core processor costs. When it was released the phone received more than 3 million pre-orders in the first 24 hours.


Xiaomi is shipped with MIUI pre-loaded, but also supports stock Android ROMs and other 3rd party ROMs, and is in consideration to add Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 to the phone. .

Xiaomi Phone faster, cheaper than iPhone4

Analysts pessimistic about firm's chances
The Chinese start-up company Xiaomi Corp on Tuesday announced plans to release a 1,999-yuan (217 euros) smartphone to compete with industry giants such as Apple Inc and Nokia Corp in the world's largest cell phone market.

The 1.5-gigahertz (GHz) dual-core Xiaomi Phone is seen as a dark horse and has been raising eyebrows among smartphone users.

According to Xiaomi's founder and CEO Lei Jun, it will be the fastest smartphone on the market, compared with Apple's 1 GHz iPhone 4 and the 1.2-GHz dual-core S2 from Samsung Electronics Co.

Xiaomi's software and operating system are among the highlights of the phone, Lei says.

The phone comes packaged with Xiaomi's own applications and Google Inc's Android-based operating system.

"For the same reason why Google bought Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc, a company must be involved with software, hardware and services in order to compete," says Lei, who also serves as board chairman of Kingsoft Corp, one of China's biggest software companies.

The phone will be sold and shipped online. "Our online fans will be our target customers," Lei says, adding that Xiaomi's online forum has more than 500,000 members and about 40 percent of them are overseas.

However, analysts are not very optimistic about the Xiaomi Phone.

"The market for the device is very narrow since it will only cater to customers in first-tier cities. I think the company is too naive about the cell phone market," says Kevin Wang, China Research director of iSuppli Asia Shanghai Ltd.

Wang says the company's chance of success is less than 50 percent and the device won't be a game changer in the cell phone market.

Xiaomi announced that the handset will start accepting online reservations on Aug 29 and begin shipments in October.

However, Wang says that during the two-month gap, other Chinese smartphone makers such as ZTE Corp will launch new cell phones with similar functions and hardware.

Other analysts concur with Wang. "It's almost impossible to make money at such a low price. However, Xiaomi may have a chance if it can fully leverage its advantage in software services," says Sun Peilin, an analyst from the domestic research company Analysys International.

agree with Kevin Wang.

also their marketing and pricing sucks for them as a business.


You just don't really release a 1/3 more powerful device onto the market than the competition and then start your pricing with the lower end of the range.

Unless you want to start it as a bait, or earn from services from it.
Both will be tricky in the market we are discussing here.

Or, the cpu is the bait, and the rest sucks IRL, especially in this combination.
