The global VP of Xiaomi, Hugo Barra has mentioned that the company will not enter the North American markets until 2015. The reason behind this is the busy schedule the company has with plans to break into 10 new markets simultaneously this year. He gave out the info while speaking at the Indonesian Cellular Show.

Xiaomi’s resurgence in the market has been widely acclaimed and it’s only logical for the company to expand into markets like North America and Europe where value for money devices have historically sold well. It seems like some regions in Europe might get Xiaomi devices this year in addition to China’s neighboring markets of course.

Whether the company will be successful in its global endeavors is only for time to tell. But Xiaomi’s workforce certainly has the capability to conquer even the biggest markets of Asia if it can manage to keep up with the demand.

The company is known for devices like the recently launched the MiPad 7.9 and the budget RedMi Note phablet, which is almost too identical to the iPad Mini with the words “Retina” being floated around in the product page as well. It is also involved in the TV business with the recently launched 49 inch 4K TV carrying an unbelievable price tag of $640.
