There’s no regret having the Xiaomi MI3 almost 8 months ago, even shipped it all the way from Xiaomi’s hometown China. Differently.
Singapore and Malaysia can now order a Xiaomi Mi Note smartphone from Chinese electronics company Xiaomi and have Xiaomi Mi Note delivered through Uber.
That is an excellent tandem for the impatient Xiaomi fans including me. According to Xiaomi’s marketing strategist, Hugo Barra announced the on-demand delivery scheme on Facebook, calling it a first-of-its-kind collaboration between the two hot start-ups.
“The process for ordering a phone is nearly the same as for ordering a standard Uber pick-up: Customers open the Uber app, then use the slider at the bottom to choose “Xiaomi,” after which orange-colored Uber cars will show up on the map.”
At any day, Malaysian and Singaporean fans may quickly press the order button and payment will be charged to the customer’s credit card linked with the Uber account, with delivery of a Mi Note to follow within a few minutes, says Barra.
On the brighter side of moon, it may take a little while for me to change my Xiaomi Mi3, which I still consider it, a random luxury.
