Xiaomi launched the Mi Crowdfunding program in India in April and the company kickstarted it with two products- the Mi Bluetooth Audio Receiver and Mi Selfie Stick. Xiaomi indicated that the products would only go on sale after each of them were able to garner up to 1000 backers. That goal seems to have been accomplished as the company has announced, via a Twitter post, the success of the crowdfunding program.
Both products are now available for sale on Mi India website. The products retain their crowdfunding price tags which is Rs. 1,099 (~$16) for the Mi Selfie Stick Tripod and Rs. 999 (~$15) for the Mi Bluetooth Audio Receiver.
To recall, the Mi Selfie Stick Tripod is a hybrid of a selfie stick and a tripod and it is equipped with a Bluetooth shutter remote. It can rotate 360 degrees and it can house large-sized phones like Mi Max 2. It is available only in Black color. It features Bluetooth 3.0 and can be used with Android phones running on Android 4.3 or above and iOS devices with IOS 5.0 or above. On its part, the Mi Bluetooth Audio Receiver is a wireless device that can be paired with a smartphone and used for playing music and answering phone calls. Its features include Bluetooth 4.2, headphone amplifier chip, 3.5mm audio jack and 97mAh battery. The battery can be charged fully in 2 hours and can last up to 4-5 hours of playback. In addition, it can be paired with two devices simultaneously, but only of them will be functional at a time.
