Xiaomi is planning to ship its first Notebook computer in the first or second quarter of next year. The work has already been successfully begun, and the first Notebook computer is being designed by Inventec Corp. According to the Taipei Times,
"Richard Lee, the Chairman of Inventec Corp, yesterday confirmed the company is making Xiaomi Inc’s first notebook computer product in China, with shipments set to begin in the first half of next year".
Richard Lee told reporters in an event held in Taipei city,
“I am upbeat about the business outlook for Xiaomi’s notebook computers, as the firm has more than 200 million registered smartphone users”.
Also, he added,
“I am not sure if the smartphone approach will be applicable to notebooks, but I expect Xiaomi’s entry into the notebook industry to bring something new to the market".
Xiaomi and Inventec Corp are jointly designing and manufacturing Xiaomi's first Laptop in Inventec’s plants in China.
“Given that some of Inventec’s clients are scheduled to launch new products at the end of next quarter, sales contributions from the new products will be limited next quarter, but should become significant next year,” Lee said.
Xiaomi is one of the well known Smartphone manufacturer and it has been manufacturing many devices including TVs, wearables, networking, and home appliances over the years.
According to Bloomberg's recent news,
"Xiaomi’s notebook may compete with such premium computers as Apple’s MacBook Air and Lenovo’s ThinkPad.
Let us hope Xiaomi's Laptops will earn a good name in the market like its smartphones.
