Xiaomi Phones may enter the European market early 2013

Xiaomi

Chinese online sources claim that Xiaomi might be releasing its successful phones in Europe as early as Q1 2013. The real question behind this statement is whether Xiaomi has the capabilities to expand its market in a completely uncharted area. Just to start off, Xiaomi will have to invest a lot of money in advertisement in Europe as not a lot of people are familiar with the brand. Finally, the funny part about this story is that Xiaomi has about 1.3 billion people in china to sell to, but that’s not good enough for them, of course.
