Xiaomi MiPad sells out in 1 hour and 50,000 Redmi 2 units are snatched up in Indian flash sale

Xiaomi did turn to the tried and true flash sale model for the Xiaomi Redmi 2. The handset drew 300,000 registrations on Flipkart and 50,000 units were snatched up in seconds. The handset was priced at the equivalent of $112 USD. Another flash sale is scheduled later in the day for the 64GB Xiaomi Mi 4.
Until today's open sale of its tablet, every Xiaomi device sold in India had relied on the flash sale technique the very first time it was offered in the country. Judging by the results, it seems that the company made a good call with the MiPad.
Thanks for the tip!

Did anyone notice that they didn't reveal how many Redmi 2/Note 4G devices were sold during Singapore's flash sales? Must be because of poor sales.

All I read is: "Xiaomi produces very few units". Imagine if LG, Samsung, HTC or Sony did this. Would not be taken good by costumers, just look at OnePlus One. The west world is not easily fooled and go for what is available instead of playing games.

If Apple and Samsung did flash sales, they would sell more than a million in 1 minute. These (Xiaomi, One Plus one) companies are total farce. They sell 50,000 in 1 minutes then they don't sell for weeks/months. So it's not 50,000 in 1 minutes, it's actually 50000 in 1 month/week.. And if you use these devices, you will immediately know how sub standard they are. I have used them many times, and I see them with people I know every day. The only good thing about them are cheap. Rest everything is B grade.

No Money into R&D and Less Advertising budget= Very Cheap Phone. Ofcourse These types of phones are a benefit to the consumer but there is also a disadvantage the OEM will not spend more money in R&D because their consumers like a bang for the buck device. BTW I don't hate Xaomi. Just my Opinion.

Lol! 50,000 sold is equivalent to 1,000 iPads sold for the same amount. Keep selling Xiaomi you have a ways to go. Plus a tablet like this are throw away tablets. People who buy more expensive tablets keep them for roughly 2-3 years.
