Xiaomi, the masters of creating demand, have managed to sell 50,000 new quad-core Xiaomi M2 phones at today’s preorder, with the whole stock of M2’s going in under 3 minutes!

Gizchina News of the week

As is always the case with Xiaomi phones, we knew they would sell out but we didn’t quite realize just how fast they would manage to shift the 50,000 M2’s they had prepared!

According to the official Xiaomi fan pages M2 customers managed to buy the entire stock of phones in an amazing 2 minutes and 51 seconds!

For those of you (there will be a lot) who didn’t manage to get a Xiaomi M2 today, don’t worry as the plan to start the second pre-sale in November and hope to have as many as 250,000 phones available for the second round!

    If they could have produced a few million more and kept selling at that rate they would have smashed the sales record of the iphone for it’s first weekend.

      If yes, but it’s not if.
      Since, the next time will be nothing, not even my friends and China have to get one.
      So yet again Nexus 4, which is even in German.

        Xiaomi just lost a customer, I can get a Nexus 4 for the same price without risking shipping from China.

    Hi Andy. I have a question?, why some chinese companies sold few units of the best cellphone?.

    If Xiamoi produces 1 million of this phone is safe that they sold all.

    Is imposible buy a phone like this outside of china.

      Xiaomi have priced their phone below the current cost of the parts to make it. They hope that as the year goes on the phone’s components will drop in price and they will eventually make a profit on the phone. If they made a million now they would loose more money.
      I’ve also heard a rumour that they have run in to supply problems with some of their Japanese suppliers.
