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 – US$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.

iFiveAirIMP3NetR001

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].
