Mirroring Apple’s annual WWDC, where devotees would pay to listen to Steve Jobs showcasing new products, Xiaomi company only charged their fans 199 yuan (US$31) to attend the Beijing launch party, with the proceeds going to charity and offer attractive free gift for every attendees. Over 1,000 people flocked in to the event. Enthusiasts came from all over the country, were all lining up in a Bauhaus-style art hall in Beijing, enticed by hardware that matches the iPhone 4s at just half the cost. We don’t like the venue for the event, because most of the time all attendees were under the hot sun while waiting outside the entrance, without any cover, and the air-conditional was terribly weak inside the event hall, which created heavy sweating.
this is very similar to Steve Jobs’ presentation.
