Xiaomi has confirmed that 15th October will be official first day of sales for the Nvidia Tegra 4 version of the Xiaomi Mi3, and there will be 100,000 phone ready to ship.

Gizchina News of the week

Those wishing to buy the Tegra 4 version of the Mi3 (and please remember this will only work on China Mobile 3G) will need to book their phones on 10th October through Xiaomi’s online webstore. Hopefuls without a code will have to for scalpers to buy up stock and sell them at inflated prices at China’s many phone markets.

Also available on 15th October is the Xiaomi TV which is an Android smart TV with glasses free 3D, built-in video streaming services and Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor.

      Yes, we have added a CDN to the site to speed it up, however it is causing a few other issues which we are working on to try and fix.

    100,000? Where’s the Gizchina sweepstake on how many seconds this tiny number will last on launch date? I suggest 5, 10, 15 seconds as choices.

      Nice idea I’m going to do just that on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/GizChina/108790159145570 (I’ll have to find a prize now)
