Xiaomi, which notably lured Hugo Barra away from Google a few weeks ago, recently announced their Mi3 smartphone lineup, as well as a few TVs. The mobile phone, which is debuting with some really amazing specs at unheard of prices, is the new darling of the Chinese market.
The darling of the show, however, may have been Barra, who used his brief stint on stage to show off his limited Chinese. He assured the audience he’d be living in Beijing, and was working hard to learn Chinese.
The launch also featured NVIDIA co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, who is of Chinese descent but grew up in the US. He admirably finished the NVIDIA portion of the Mi3 launch in Chinese, which could be another sign the world is ready to welcome Xiaomi to the world’s stage.
