I am a little skeptical about any Chinese Electronics and telecommunication factory to be set up in India. No offense intended, but a few years back another Chinese ET Giant was barred on the ground that they are placing virtual snooping and surveillance gadgets into the Mobile phone towers. Its not that i am against Anything Chinese, but its better to be alert than sorry.
Welcome to India, Xiaomi. As an Indian, I would love to have an Xiaomi Mi made in India. Yippe! Also that will solve the problem of spare parts availability.
Good decision by Xiaomi which foreseen about markets demand Vs supply chain point of view.
However, another news Xiaomi can save money since brazil taxation is too heavy for import.
India --> might expect BCD 6~10% in future if import phones. if you manufacture and sell in DTA, pls use DTA manufacturing.
Whoever company tried to manufacturing in India earlier got finished. Xiaomi's ownership should think twice about it.
Ayush01, 28 Nov 2014The only manufacturer IMO that can kick Apple's butt.There is no way that mi gonna beat apple.
Dude if the any product from Mike coast u 500$ no one gonna buy it.
Let's come to apple ppl fight for it.
I'm from Brazil.
I don't know well the law, but i guess is something like:
The taxes are much expensive if company don't make more or less 60% of device here.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2014china has the cheapest labor rate in the world and now they move it out of china? smell fishyIt used to be so, now things are changing. One of the biggest problem faced by Chinese manufacturers are increasing wages. Many firms are already using robots for process like welding and others in china due to increasing salaries .
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2014china has the cheapest labor rate in the world and now they move it out of china? smell fishyI think there's some kind of law in Brazil saying that you can't sell your phones there unless you make something there. I hope someone from Brazil will explain it better.

Hopefully the new government doesn't srew over xiaomi like the last one did to nokia..
they might just kick apples rear, they produce nice hand sets for a affordable price - and as far as copying apple is concerned, all I am gonna say is: good artist's copy, great artist's steal (steve jobs)
