I’m back from my annual pilgrimage to Hong Kong, with a bonus side trip to Kuala Lumpur. As I become reacquainted with life in the Eastern Time Zone I thought I’d share a few mobile insights from what I saw overseas.
This final installment will document my quest for the ultimate mobile souvenir from China, the elusive Xiaomi Mi3
To find a Chinese smartphone in Hong Kong seemed a lot harder in 2014 than it had been in 2013 or 2012; the Meizu flagship store which I had visited on previous trips
was no longer there. And though Xiaomi supposedly has an office on Nathan Road the surging holiday crowds in Mongkok made it pretty much impossible to find.
Fortunately, a day trip to Shenzhen was in our itinerary.
