Why can’t Xiaomi sell phones or tablets in the US?
Patents, that’s the short answer. A few weeks ago the company had to recall its devices from India due to a lawsuit from Ericsson. The Chinese company used Ericsson technology to connect to wireless networks and did not pay for it. For three years Ericsson tried to negotiate with Xiaomi before taking legal action.
This forced Xiaomi to negotiate with Ericsson, after all the Indian market is crucial for the Chinese company. Recall that Ericsson owns a good number of connection patents. He recently had an incident with Apple where both companies sued in the US.
Xiaomi needs to build its patent portfolio, something that will take time but will be vital if it wants to conquer the rest of the world.
via Xiaomi will start selling products in the United States – Wayerless.
