Marketing gimmick or not, Xiaomi‘s strategy of making available its phones for orders in radical spurts has undoubtedly generated much demand and buzz. On the flipside, it has turned a number of people off, even if it was to buy one of the popular Mi Power Banks via its online store.
Fret not though. Xiaomi has announced that it will open “pre-sale” for the Mi 3 starting tomorrow. With pre-ordering in place, customers will not need to be at their computers and wait for the stroke of 12pm to place their orders (or attempt to) for their favourite Xiaomi device. Never queue or rush to compete for your Mi orders ever again. #Win for customers.
Xiaomi has quoted a 3-4 weeks shipping time. OK, so you do have to wait a little but at least, no more scrambling.
