Flipkart-to-put-15000-units-of-xiaomi-mi3-for-sale-on-Aug-5-2014

Xiaomi has declared via a Facebook post that 15,000 Mi3 units will be available to consumers for purchase on Flipkart on 5 August (2:00 PM). The device first went on sale on 22 July (sold out within 37 minutes) and then on 29 July (sold out within 5 seconds), selling 10,000 units on each occasion. Xiaomi has witnessed a great beginning for their Indian launch.

Many thought the flash sale was part of a marketing stunt to get attention, which proved to be a successful tool in China. But, recently the company got penalized for reporting fake Redmi handset sales figure in Taiwan. FTC (Fair Trade Commission) slammed a NT$600,000 (around $20,000 or Rs 12,16,620) penalty for misguiding consumers, reported Taiwan’s national tabloid ‘Focus Taiwan’.

Xiaomi Mi3 comes with a pocket-friendly price tag of just Rs 13,999. It sports a 5.0-inch full HD display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon CPU, Android v4.4.2 KitKat (with custom MIUI), full HD display (440 ppi) with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, Aluminum-Magnesium alloy frame and a 3050 mAh battery.

Computer science engineer turned technology blogger. Following consumer electronics industry closely from 2006, he can now predict pretty much where the market is heading. He has a dream to own Android, Windows Phone and iOS smartphones all at the same time.

*Yeah I think this time it ran out of stock within two seconds or something but still not sure.This was bound to happen given how big India is and how no one is even providing something even close to Xiaomi in terms of specs at such a price. I don’t know if it will work but my friend who managed to order one for himself says that having a flipkart first membership helps but I can’t guarantee that.
