Xiaomi Financed At Valuation Between US$40-$50 Billion

Weibo:

Xiaomi4050BValueWeibo

The link (use Chrome) mentions the history of Xiaomi valuations:

2010 – US$250M
2011 – US$1B
2012 – US$4B
2013 – $10B

I’m beginning to think this company is going to need all the money it can get its hands on. For patent licenses and design infringement court cases.

Hisense Vidaa Pad Coming To America

Hisense Sero 8 Pro tablet hits the FCC, high-res display and all

But will we get all the colors?

I’m disappointed English-language JD.com carries only the Tyrant Gold model. That red color is killer.

This could be the first Rockchip 3288-based tablet to be sold in America. I’m a bit excited over the prospect of fondling it. I hope it gets in actual stores (wake up, Best Buy!).

iFive Air Gets A Second Review

iFiveAirIMP3NetR001

Over at IMP3Net [Google Translate].

The only surprise is that the back camera isn’t condemned. But the samples offered as proof are reduced in size, so I’m unconvinced.

Ramos i9s Pro: Dual-Boot Android/Windows 8.1

Ramosi9sZOL001

This tablet doesn’t interest me.

But it’s notable for these reasons:

1) As Intel’s first partner in China, Ramos has really been trying to improve quality control and create a distinct look

2) It’s the second dual-boot tablet from Ramos

2) It has 64GBs of storage

See coverage at IMP3Net [Google Translate], full specs at PadHz [Google Translate], and beauty shots of the tablet (Windows 8.1 version) at ZOL [Google Translate].

“Forget It, Jake. It’s China.”

So one can from a competitor looks like another. The original can maker sues and is awarded damages and a restraining order.

But this doesn’t seem to apply to tablet, smartphone, and other designs. How does that even work?
