50,000 Xiaomi MiPad tablets sell in less than four minutes
Of course, Xiaomi used the "Hunger Marketing" technique that it has perfected with its handsets. Hype the device, and sell a limited number online, that is a quick definition of the sales method that the upstart device maker has been using. With its new tablet, Xiaomi sold 50,000 units in 3 minutes and 59 seconds.
The 16GB model is priced at 1499 Yuan ($240 USD), while the 64GB slate will cost you 1699 Yuan ($270 USD). Of course, those who missed out on buying an Xiaomi MiPad this time, will be anxious to make the cut with the next sale. Xiaomi has not commented on whether it will offer the MiPad outside of its home market.
