Xiaomi to Launch Mi Store in US -- but no Phones for Now By Clip Syndicate Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is bringing its products to the US, but perhaps not the ones consumers might clamor for most. The company announced Thursday that it will be launching its online Mi store in US, but it will not carry any phones in the Mi line, Mi Note or Redmi line of smartphones, nor its Mi Pad tablet. Instead, Xiaomi will sell its lesser-known ancillary products such as headphones and its Mi Band wearable fitness tracker. An online store signifies the first step towards its eagerly anticipated entry into the US market. While not a household name, Xiaomi has steadily built up its reputation among the tech savvy as "the Apple of China" with affordable and slick-designed devices packed with high-end components, all with price tags that are sometimes half that of its competitors' products.

Tests were done, and aside from the length of facial hair, the only common denominator was that all the iPhone 6 devices were purchased in Canada. Same phone, purchased at about the same time — only in America instead of Canada. ...Read More »
US Carriers, You'll Have to Unlock Those Phones By Clip Syndicate The days of carriers locking down devices to keep customers in place are officially dead. Starting Wednesday, all US carriers must comply with requests from postpaid and prepaid customers to unlock their devices, as long as certain parameters are met. The rules officially came down in 2013, and the industry group CTIA committed last year to have all wireless carriers adhering to the regulation by February 11, 2015. The debate over phone unlocking has come a long way in just a few short years. Unlocking a phone allows owners to put the device on whatever carrier network they choose. For years, carriers have locked down devices, allowing them only to connect to their own networks. The move was designed to keep customers close and not see them stray to other carriers.
