CDMA or not? Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had questioned himself over last night about whether his company to release a CDMA version Xiaomi phone or not. He is worrying the CDMA version will not be attractive and it could cause the company a great loss. Therefore, Lei Jun had established a poll on Sina Weibo to question its fans.

The poll (Sina Weibo) indicated 46.47% (12480) of fans say they don’t need a CDMA version Xiaomi while 37.95% (10191) say they need it, and the remaining say they have no opinion.

There is one major problem to release a CDMA version, the money. The company will need to throw a buck of money for the CDMA patent fees and a better processor. Therefore, Lei Jun hesitated to make the decision. Despite there are 46% indicated they don’t need it, there is 37.95% (10191 votes) saying they want it. The question comes to “is that enough to generate profit?”. If so, why not?
