Huawei steps on Xiaomi’s toes again, will launch router at CES

Huawei are taking plenty of lessons from Xiaomi. The Chinese phone giant now has it’s own Hongmi rival and now plans to launch the Huawei Medialife router at CES.

Gizchina News of the week

According to rumours on Weibo, Huawei will be showing off their own ‘smart router’ at CES on 7th January. The silver and white tower , which reminds us of the G4 Mac Cube from Apple, will house a WIFI antenna and believed to have built-in storage to share media content on a local WIFI network.

We are waiting on full specifications, but it will likely use 5Ghz WIFI, have up to 1TB of storage and be priced at around 1000 Yuan. Unlike Xiaomi’s router though there is a chance this Huawei model will get an international launch.

    Ok, so what does Xiaomi have to do with this? Huawei are in the market much longer and their routers have USB-HDD capability already so….. Just because Xiaomi have a similar product it’s needed to put their name in the title? Or is it to get page views? Xiaomi is a company which released two phones ground breaking, they released a OS which is a rip off of Cyanogenmod and which is far less useful then the newest Cyanogen roms. Xiaomi deserves far less recognition here on Gizchina than they get. It is not right 😉

    What the f*ck is wrong with the United States? How come we don’t have any good technology and how come the big three providers hold our people back with limitations and rip off rates?
