Xiaomi has gotten a license to enter the virtual telecom game. Could it be the company to bring a spark of life back into that dying experiment?
Xiaomi, the brainchild of investor and tech guru Lei Jun, redefined the Chinese smartphone market by launching an extremely powerful smartphone running on a smartly-designed Android skin at a price almost anyone could afford. Other companies have since followed Xiaomi into the cheap-smartphone fray, but the company’s success has proved difficult to copy. It has also proved difficult to predict, ignoring the expectations for a tablet launch and instead launching a set-top box for online video. Where will Xiaomi go next? We have no idea. But whatever the company does is sure to be interesting.
To be clear, Xiaomi did not announce a smartwatch. Barra says there will be a “decision in the next few months” and for now there are “no solid plans.”
Xiaomi has confirmed it will invest US$300 million in Baidu-backed online video portal iQiyi for an undisclosed stake in the company.
