XiaomiTool Lets You Manage Multiple Xiaomi Devices
If you’ve had your eyes on the headlines of the tech industry, you’ve surely noticed the name ‘Xiaomi’ mentioned on more than one occasion. For the unaware, ‘Xiaomi’ is the name of an OEM that many analysts predict to be a rising power in the mobile market, with headlines calling the company the ‘Apple of the East’. Perhaps there’s merit to all this, because after all, Xiaomi’s new phone, the Redmi 1S, sold out in India within 4.2 seconds. So, if you’re looking to purchasing a Xiaomi device, such as the Redmi 1S, you may want to check out XiaomiTool.
