Xiaomi launches in the United States, no smartphones for now
At a February 12th event held by the Chinese tech outfit in the United States, Xiaomi announced that it will soon begin to sell products in the region real soon even though these products are still exempt of their high-profile yet low-cost smartphones.
The Mi Note and Mi Note Pro maker, through the mouth of Global VP, Hugo Barra, an ex-Googler, explained that it takes time to get smartphones approved get and to set up logistics in the United States. Barra explained that his company is aware of patent law suits which is always expected to be shown towards a fast-growing company by the bigger players.
“IP litigation is part of any company growing from small to big,” the executive said. “We just don’t know when.” Xiaomi is currently facing a ban in India where Swedish telecommunications giant Ericson has blocked the phone maker from selling devices through a Delhi high court.
To stay out of similar trouble, Xiaomi had recently registered about 2,500 patents over three countries other countries apart from China — U.S., Korea and Japan. This will help the privately-backed firm tobe able to present counter suits when faced with these cases.
