Xiaomi finally learns it’s lesson and readies 200,000 Xiaomi M2s for first day of launch!

Although we love Xiaomi, their phone and the fantastic MIUI, we were always a little upset by the way they launched limited numbers of the phone, seemingly to create demand and shortages. Finally though it seems Xiaomi have changed.

Xiaomi officially ventured out of the mainland of China this year and are now offering the wonderful Xiaomi M2S in Hong Kong and Taiwan. This news is great for those markets, but it also worried Chinese fans, as Xiaomi phones were always in high demand and low supply when only available in China, what would these additional territories mean?

Gizchina News of the week

Luckily it seems Xiaomi have got their act together and yesterday announced that they had 200,000 units of the updated Xiaomi M2s ready to directly buy from their online store. Not only that but versions for the major phone networks went on sale too.

Let’s hope Xiaomi continue to keep stocks of M2S and M2A phone from dwindling, and fingers crossed the same strategy is used for the next generation Xiaomi Mi3 which is expected in October.

    What of the M2A? I feel like it will be a more popular phone due to the lower price tag.

    @Andi do we really need F code to buy this ? When will it available without any code ?
    I really need this one
    It will be really helpful if you create an article for purchasing same. I am from India so I think payment will also be a big issue . Don’t really know if Alipay accept Visa/mastercard from India .
    can you suggest any other sites I can trust for purchasing it . Just don’t want to end up getting fake one

      The only way you can get one is to find an online reseller or an agent here in China that can get one for you.

    Any idea of how these numbers compare to previous releases? With that comparison in the article it’s kind of a useless number.
