PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Let's continue our impromptu Asian theme for today, and move from South Korea's Samsung to China's Xiaomi. "China's Xiaomi Technology is a fairy tale for nerdy entrepreneurs. Less than three years after its founding, the smartphone maker is valued at $4 billion and evokes Apple-like adoration from its fans, some of whom are desperate enough to skip work for a shot at buying the latest product the day it goes on sale."

I thought they just used MIUI as their UI, but after a quick googling, I saw that they developed MIUI, which uses Cyanogen at its core, and later made available to the public to translate and port to other devices. Very interesting. I would love if any Android OEM would use Cyanogen as their stock android OS.
