Xiaomi's been making slow progress towards becoming one of the top smartphone manufacturers out there. While releasing great devices, the company has been limited primarily to Chinese markets, with its fans here in the US and worldwide not having any official retail outlets to purchase Xiaomi devices from. Well, that's about to change soon, as Xiaomi is set to officially make inroads in the US and UK in just a couple of days.
Xiaomi's MiStore To Provisionally Open Sales To US And Europe Starting May 19th
According to the company's facebook page, Xiaomi's ready to make slow inroads to the US and Europe. Customers in US, UK, France and Germany. Customers in these territories will be able to make purchases of Xiaomi accessories through Mi.com for the first time in Xiaomi's short history. You'll only be able to purchase Xiaomi's Mi Band, both of the company's 5000 and 10400 mAh battery power banks and Mi headphones.
Xiaomi's also advising potential customers to head over to Mi.com and create their accounts as soon as possible. The reason for this being that the amount of accessories available for sale are limited in number, so if you're eager for a Xiaomi accessory then make an account as soon as possible. Xiaomi's Mi Store opening doors to the West is good news for both the company and consumers. Xiaomi's devices provide an interesting refresher to the traditional crop of Android smartphones out there and its entry officially into the US would give consumers more choice. It'll also provide more competition to the likes of Apple and Samsung, who have long dominated when it comes to tablets and smartphones. For Xiaomi, it'll finally be the big move the company has been long awaited to make. So head over to Mi.com and sign up for your purchases and let us know what you think the comments section.
