Another Update: UMi prepping UMi Tab 3G tablet? Maybe it’s true after all!


UMi have a lot going on around them at the moment what with the X1s launch, X2 delay and development for the S1, Mini and Max, so have they been putting in the extra hours to also bring us the UMi Tab 3G tablet too?

After posting this article we had a chat with our friends at UMi here in China who have confirmed that UMi are NOT making a tablet! This isn’t to say that UMimobile, the Indian distributors, aren’t planning to rebrand another tablet as a UMi device, but the actual owners of the UMi brand and makers of the X1, X1s and X2 won’t be manufacturing it!

The saga continues as UMi are now handing the following statement out which does mention a tablet!

Announcement for Umi International market

Recently many many news have surfaced the internet, about Umi X2 sale and Umi X2 delay due to technical reasons We at Umi China want to clarify that at present we are soon to start in China & India Market Umi Mobiles Private Limited company is China official representative in India market, registered at New Delhi for selling all UMI products such as Umi X1, X1s,X2 and upcoming tablet or future products.

We’re waiting to hear back from UMi regarding this tablet and will let you know what they say. In the meantime we have some friendly advice for UMimobile, why not concentrate on launching the X1s and UMi X2 phones before leaking details of more device? Just a thought.

        @androidchinain-did you hear any launch date about x2 in india?

    The guys at UMI are really showing a very poor attitude here in India. Nothing is clear at all. All they have been doing is announcing devices and banning sensible people from the facebook page. Thumbs down!

    • March 29, 2013

      I’ve been hearing the same and have passed this on to UMi China. I’ve been assured that UMi India will be spoken to.

        Let us hope they address the issue with due attention. Exciting times ahead for us Indians. Zopo seems to be in the process of getting in, and Gionee already has. The big question for me remains whether or not Jiayu decide to take the leap.

        @Akash: I agree, looks like the guys at UMi India have actually gotten a few X2’s in hand.

        • March 29, 2013

          JiaYu do have a distributor in India

      Umi India have not been doing a bad job…… They’ve announced that they’re fixing the black line, they’ve sent the units for review, they’re working on an online payment method. You guys are just impatient.

      • yash3339
        March 30, 2013

        They SAID they’ve sent units for review. Anyway, it is subjective, what you make of it.

    yeah..agree with yash…Umimobles india facebook page has banned 100’s of people who raised there concerns on Warranty ,support and date of launch…

    looks like Umi is giving more importance to Indian market than China!!

      what makes you love there are just no reviews buy any of the bloggers no user has reported any delivery of product. it is total chaos and mayhem in india as the product still remains good on paper the phone needs a decent review first.

      • March 29, 2013

        Yep no one has one yet, and I’m pretty sure no one will be getting to review a 2GB ram model when they do get them

          Just in: There seems to be a franchise called ‘AndroidGuruz’ which is getting these brands in India. I don’t know how UMi calls them ‘partners’. This franchise claims they will get over 40 brands to India. They have a facebook page already, and all pages ie UMi, Jiayu, iocean have put up posts naming AndroidGuruz as their partner. Fishy!

          • March 29, 2013

            There is nothing fishy :). just read Gogi article in India on AndroidGuruz

            March 29, 2013

            Read that. This is wrt to your first comment: Can you give us some more info regarding dates and info about Jiayu and iocean? The UMi community seems like the most active. Thanks.

    India market is of utmost importance not only to UMI but to others as well… in china they have too much competition.

    I want quad core, 9,7″ Full HD like display, and 3G!

  7. Chinese mobile have no Import duty @ 0%:and INR is now ₹ symbol. Thanks for official site information link. All news from some websites and Facebook pages and they all are claiming official pages and sites disturbing real web lovers. Chinese phone Companies are taking advantage of duty free big market nearby and peoples are pleased on rates with local service support. Only http://www.gionee.co.in/index.html is able to display service center / person name with address and all other brands have nothing practical. So waiting is better.
