Yesterday, there was news that almost delighted Xiaomi fans in the US. Almost. A carrier, who you may or may not have heard before, that rode on T-Mobile's network, started offering Xiaomi and Meizu smartphones. Suddenly, the Internet was ablaze with two pieces of news, in rapid succession. First was the unexpected, and totally unannounced arrival of Xiaomi phones in the US. And the other was to point out that it was not legit at all. Now both Xiaomi and US Mobile are putting in their two cents each.
