Xiaomi is now one of the world's top 10 smartphone makers by volume

We can’t say we haven’t seen this coming. Xiaomi is now one of top 10 global smartphone makers by volume, though most its clients still come from China. Chances are this will change in the near future now that “Apple of China” is looking to expand beyond its home turf.

Xiaomi took the 6th position on the list which [list] is topped by Samsung and Apple. HTC is no longer one of the top 10 smartphone makers though that could change with the help of newly launched One M8 and few of the recently unveiled mid-rangers.

Back to Xiaomi. The 4-year-old phone maker is gearing towards announcing the 2014 flagship, Mi3S, as well as its very first tablet that will likely be known as MiPad. In addition to China, both of these products will be available in few other countries across Asia.

    The minute Xiaomi imports their knock-offs to Korea or the U.S., best believe that will be the beginning of the slew of rightful patent-infringement lawsuits.
    This is a shameful display of how thoughtless and unimaginative the industry can be when a clear blueprint is made of how to make a good product and succeed.

    My thought exactly from a different perspective – because the Xiaomi IS original based on many west tech experts who’ve examined the Xiaomi phones, and Apple and Samsung have no way to compete with Xiaomi. Try to have one to before you jump into conclusion, unless you think everyone smartphone other than Apple and Samsung’s is a knock-off.
