Xiaomi to hold more open sales in India starting today; stocks of Xiaomi MiPad are replenished
Speaking of open sales, last week the Xiaomi MiPad was offered sans registrations and inventory that was supposed to last for two weeks was sold out in one hour. The company promised that it would return with more tablets and now we know that the slate will go back on sale in India starting March 30th. The Wi-Fi only tablet will be priced at the equivalent of $209 USD.
All of the devices will be offered by Indian on-line retailer Flipkart, the company that also hosts Xiaomi's flash sales in the country. With the flash sales, consumers were required to register first. Xiaomi would then release a limited number of units for sale. Many times, the devices would be all sold within seconds. With the open sale, a consumer does not have to register in advance, and he or she can purchase the device at any time as long as there is inventory remaining.
Thanks for the tip!
