Want China Times
Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi will open its first “Mi Home” in Taiwan next
month, a showroom for Xiaomi fans to try out new products and hang out with each other, in an attempt to build a loyal community of fans.
The showroom will sit close to the Xingtian Temple station on the Taipei Metro with over 2,500 square feet of floor space, providing more tangible services and experiences beyond e-commerce such as maintenance, product returns, software upgrades and accessory purchases, said Xiaomi global vice president Hugo Barra.
“We’ve designed it like we design our own home. It’s cozy, it’s spacious, it’s very, very comfortable. And it’s there for you to come not only if you have a problem with your Xiaomi product, but it’s just a beautiful place for you to just spend some time in it,” Barra said at the Taiwan launch of the Mi 4i smartphone last week.
