So it is another Tuesday and another familiar story for the Xiaomi fans. Xiaomi Redmi 1S, whose sale was expected to go live today at 2:00pm IST, has been sold out in less than 2 seconds.
Even the last time, Xiaomi Redmi 1S had gone out of stock in less than 5 seconds and according to Xiaomi officials, there were over 40,000 devices to be sold. But if we get into a bit of reality with the sale, 90% of the orders have not even been shipped till now and it has been a week already.
Things like this give a bit of indications on the kind of strategy Xiaomi is having to become popular in a country like India. Mi 3 was pretty quick in terms of shipping and delivery (I myself ordered one and got the delivery on the very next day).
This has been a familiar story for Xiaomi and if the stats from the Xiaomi officials are to be believed, then Xiaomi has already sold products worth a few million dollars in India.
Important : The Tech Bulletin team has an extra Redmi 1S in cart. Do let us know in comments if you are interested in buying and we will ship the order directly to your location.
