Xiaomi has been forced to stop selling its smartphones in India
Xiaomi has started its international expansion in this year. One of the countries to which the brand came was to India, a market that has become extremely important to all manufacturers of smartphones. The Chinese manufacturers would find problems to shop expansion to other countries outside where they won’t feel safer as their own homeland, China. And companies like Nokia, Microsoft and Ericsson would just waiting to make their moves, if Xiaomi or other manufacturers will reach markets where they have the power to make valid patents which have in their portfolio.
And it happened. The same Hugo Barra has been commissioned to announce that Xiaomi has been forced to stop their sales in India . Through his personal Facebook account left a message to the “fans” of the brand in India.He said:
Dear Mi fans,
We have been committed to continue our sales of Redmi Note and Redmi 1S devices in India. In the last 2 days alone, we received about 150,000 registrations for Redmi Note on Flipkart and the momentum has been terrific.
However, we have been forced to suspend sales in India until further notice due to an order passed by the Delhi High Court. As a law abiding company, we are investigating the matter carefully and assessing our legal options.
Our sincere apologies to all Indian Mi fans! Please rest assured that we’re doing all we can to revert the situation. We have greatly enjoyed our journey with you in India over the last 5 months and we firmly intend to continue it!
Stay tuned for more information.
It was all he said Hugo Barra, Global Vice President of Xiaomi (Mi). But they have jumped more news about it and reported that Ericsson was behind the suspension of Xiaomi . This is because the Swedish company claims that Xiaomi has violated related technologies like 3G, EDGE and AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) patents.Because of this, the Delhi court has ordered to stop selling smartphones of the Chinese company, this until February next year when it will announce the outcome of the case .
Ericsson was the first and not the last company to give Xiaomi problems not only, but to all Chinese manufacturers seeking to reach other markets where they do not feel as protected as in China. Xiaomi came to India in July and sold about 1 million terminals during that time and even foresaw more sales, so perhaps because of that, Ericsson has decided to act. It has not been talked about a possible deal, so we have to wait until February to know the decision of the Court of India.http://androidblogcast.com/xiaomi-forced-stop-selling-smartphones-india/https://i0.wp.com/androidblogcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/xiaomi.jpeg?fit=550%2C366https://i0.wp.com/androidblogcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/xiaomi.jpeg?resize=150%2C150NewsEricsson,Hugo Barra,India,Xiaomi
