So it is no secret that the last time Xiami came 4000 units strong, they were sold out within 17 minutes. They have however announced on their Facebook page and website that they will come in 6000 strong on the 27th of this Month which was yesterday. They decided however to delay opening of their sales to earlier today at 12.00 p.m. due to some technical issues with their online sales channel. So the numbers last time suggest that 6000 units would and should sell slightly slower than the initial 4000 units. By logic it should, we expected it to slightly slow down since we at techENT expected the first 4000 units sold out so quickly due to the initial buzz that new devices like Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxys. This time though the 6000 units ran out in 15 minutes! 15 minutes!? That’s faster than before! And that’s more units! Xiaomi is definitely bringing more units in but there are no official word when and how many they will be bringing in the next time round.
Apparently though if you really want a unit you can try your luck with Digi as they are currently offering the Xiaomi Mi3 for free with their DG Smartplan 148 or for an alternative you can pre-order your unit with maxis starting in two days from today (30th May, 2014). Watch this space for more Xiaomi news later on! We’re definitely excited.
