Xiaomi’s business model differs fundamentally from Apple’s. In fact, it’s almost an inverse. Apple is a high-margin company.
Unlike Apple, however, Xiaomi sells its devices at or near cost. A top-of-the-line phone from Samsung can sell for the equivalent of $500 or more in China. Apple has yet to launch its iPhone 6 and 6S in China, but a recent press release suggests the retail price for an iPhone 6 will start at 5,288 RMB, or roughly $861.

Please consider our previous postings about Google Glass:
What you don’t want it to end up being is what a lot of experts call, you know, the ‘thousand-dollar pencil,’” said Eric Carbaugh, a faculty member with the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development. “Maybe we give kids tablets or Google Glass, or whatever it might be. There’s this tech tool that you integrate into the classroom, and what you end up seeing is that those tech tools are essentially used to take notes.”
