Xiaomi might be coming to America! Alleged February 12 event scheduled in San Francisco

Xiaomi might be coming to America! Alleged February 12 event scheduled in San Francisco
Xiaomi didn't seem in a hurry to probe the American market for the next few years, which doesn't mean it won't pursue the American dream in other ways. According to inside sources, the company has scheduled an event for February 12 in San Francisco, California - just 46.3 miles away from Apple's base of operations. 

But what does Mi have to do on US soil? Well, there are many possibilities. It could be setting up shop or announcing new hardware. It could be partnering up with US companies. It could be opening a research and development center. It could be ex-Googlers Hugo Barra (VP of Global Devision at Mi) and Jai Mani (lead product manager) showing Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun around while eating tons of gelato. If this alleged event is for real, we'll learn soon enough. We're genuinely curious what Xiaomi has been up to this time.

If you are not in the know about the million-selling Chinese company's achievements so far, check out its impressive army of smartphones. This lineup is the reason why everyone's talking about Xiaomi today.

China is doing anything to protect chinese companies....so other countries and unions like EU and USA will DO exactly the SAME to protect their own companies...

If Apple go after Xiaomi, you can expect some mysterious new laws and regulations to get introduced in China that Apple will have to pay and jump through hoops to bypass. No way on earth the Chinese government would allow one of their biggest commercial success stories to end up with a bloodied nose, and no way on earth Apple would allow China to slip away as a market. Should be interesting..... *grabs popcorn*

You actually think Apple fans will buy these Chinese crap. They buy a €699 iPhone for a reason.
