Xiaomi responds to Apple’s theft accusation


Refuting Apple’s allegations of stealing iPhone technology, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has said, one can only judge its products after using them.

The company was answering to Apple’s design head Jony Ive’s accusation that Xiaomi has stolen iPhone technology and president Lin Bin said Ive should use a Xiaomi phone to know the difference between the two gadgets.

Lin said, Xiaomi is a very open company, which would never force anyone to use its products. However, one can only judge Xiaomi’s gadgets after using them.

While responding to a question in San Francisco about common features between the two phones, Ive had said, he don’t see it as flattery rather as theft.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has surpassed Samsung and Apple to become the biggest smartphone maker in China in the second quarter of this year. Lin said the biggest challenge for Xiaomi currently was to increase its productivity.

In the first half of the year, Xiaomi produced 26 million cell phones and is expected to cross a total of over 60 million this year.

Lei Jun, Xiaomi’s founder, said that Xiaomi would not go public in the next five years.
