Xiaomi’s big US debut won’t include smartphones, tablets

Chinese OEM star Xiaomi is indeed making its way to the US, but before you get your hopes up, we will let VP for International Business Hugo Barra dash them. In a press event at San Francisco, the former Google exec revealed some details about his new overlords' plans to conquer the country. And he made it pretty damn clear: smartphones and tablets are currently not in Xiaomi's US plans. Which perhaps leaves things of lesser interest in the Chinese OEM's product catalog.

Xiaomi Mi Note puts high-end flagships on notice

Xiaomi is starting 2015 with a bang. Trying once again to disrupt the smartphone market, the Chinese OEM has unveiled the Mi Note and its even higher end Mi Note Pro sibling, sporting a combination some of the best hardware and features you're likely to see in recent and upcoming flagships.

Facebook requests Xiaomi as friend, but declined.

Word got out today from Reuters that Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun spoke with Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg about a potential investment seen back in October, but no terms were set in stone. Xiaomi started off as a business that sold smartphones at a low cheap cost. Those that are in business know that you can't make a profit selling at cheap margins. Apparently those that do know business, didn't know that you can actually make a killing by doing just that - and exactly how Xiaomi executed its success. Now one of the largest growing companies for smartphones and other small gadgets, the company is valued at $45 billion.
