Xiaomi partners with Uber to deliver your new Mi Note

Xiaomi is partnering with international transportation network company, Uber, for an on-demand delivery of the Xiaomi Mi Note smartphone to its buyers in Singapore and Malaysia.

The idea is simple, if you’re in Singapore or Malaysia, just open the Uber app on your smartphone, use the slider at the bottom to select “Xiaomi”, hit request, and an Uber car will deliver your new Mi Note smartphone to your doorstep. The payment will then be charged to your credit card tied to your Uber account.

“This is an awesome and first-of-its-kind collaboration between two of the most innovative tech startups in the world.” said Hugo Barra in his Facebook post.

      You have to realize that the site is also being read by subscribers in Malaysia and Singapore as well. Over 100,000 readers are from the US, 50,000 from Singapore and 20,000 from Malaysia. We don’t expect that 100% of all stories will concern you. :) Hope that’s okay with you.

      Opinyon lang. Baka iyong mga subscriber sa mga ibang bansa kaya nagbubukas sa site na ito dahil gusto nilang mabalitaan ang kaganapan dito mismo sa pinas. Kung ang concern ng mga nasa ibang bansa ay may sarili silang site doon na mas detelyado ng husto. Ganoon pa man ok na rin na mabalitaan natin na mayroong ganoong nangyayari sa ibang bansa. Salamat pa rin sa may akda dahil pinag hirapan itong article na mangalap ng inpormasyon para mailathala rito.

      We can’t really help it if there are Filipinos in other countries who read our blog.

      I don’t understand what the fuss is about. We publish these stories for you to read for free. Don’t know why you think you can demand what stories we cover and for whom we write it for.

    • abin says:

      Yet your posts are not really related to the Philippines, right?

      Yes, you can’t help it if Filipinos from other countries are reading your blog. They visit your site for the local technology news.

      One of the reasons we do this is to raise awareness. We got similar reactions when we started writing about Xiaomi products even when they’re not available locally at the time. They can’t buy the product yet but they were made aware which is an advantage especially when Xiaomi finally did arrive in the country. The same idea applies here. Just because it’s not relevant to you or at this moment doesn’t mean it’s not relevant to everyone else or in the future.
