Well done to Xiaomi.
In the past 3 years they have come from not even being in the hardware business to now being in the top 5 global smartphone manufacturers worldwide.
It's really unbelievable that they have shipped 26.1m smartphones already. To put that in perspective thats more than the 18.7m they shipped throughout 2013 and almost quadruple what they shipped in 2012.
I'd be surprised if they don't hit at least 60 million smartphone shipments this year. If they do that'd be more than Sony and HTC combined.
