Xiaomi suspends sales in India

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has suspended its sales in India following directions of the Delhi High Court, restraining sales of its products.

"We have been committed to continue our sales of Redmi Note and Redmi 1S devices in India. In the last two days alone, we received over 1.50 lakh registrations for Redmi Note on (e-commerce site) Flipkart and the momentum has been terrific," Xiaomi VP Hugo Barra said in a post on a social networking site. However, following the order passed by the Delhi High Court, "we have been forced to suspend sales until further notice. As a law abiding company, we are investigating the matter carefully and assessing our legal options", he said. Recently, the Delhi High Court in an interim order has restrained Xiaomi as well as Flipkart from selling in India handsets of the Chinese mobile maker that run on the technology patented by Ericsson.
"Our sincere apologies to all Indian Mi fans! Please rest assured that we’re doing all we can to revert the situation. We have greatly enjoyed our journey with you in India over the last 5 months and we firmly intend to continue it!", he said in the post.
