Xiaomi offers apologies to Indian smartphone fans after sales ban

Chinese device vendor Xiaomi has offered apologies to Indian smartphone fans after the Delhi High Court banned the company from selling in India.

Xiaomi global vice president Hugo Barra has posted a letter on his personal Facebook page. The letter acknowledges the sales ban. The company is evaluating its legal options against the court directive following complaints from Ericsson.

The company also claims that it received about 150,000 registrations for Redmi Note on Flipkart in the last two days.

Below is the full text of Barra’s letter:

Xiaomi phone launch

Dear Mi fans,

We have been committed to continue our sales of Redmi Note and Redmi 1S devices in India. In the last 2 days alone, we received about 150,000 registrations for Redmi Note on Flipkart and the momentum has been terrific.

However, we have been forced to suspend sales in India until further notice due to an order passed by the Delhi High Court. As a law abiding company, we are investigating the matter carefully and assessing our legal options.

Our sincere apologies to all Indian Mi fans! Please rest assured that we’re doing all we can to revert the situation. We have greatly enjoyed our journey with you in India over the last 5 months and we firmly intend to continue it!

Stay tuned for more information.
