aceo07, You can get the Mi-2 from merimobiles.com. They have it available for $397 CAD and $399 USD. Before I purchased I found a coupon code for merimobiles, just google it, the one I used was weserve. I was able to get it for $377 with free shipping. I wasn't able to find any bad reviews about merimobiles unlike many other retailers that sell Chinese phones, which is really nice. They don't have stock yet but they expect to start shipping them by Oct 31 at the latest. Hope this helps.
One of the lead devs at MiuiAndroid [the guys who make the fully English translated version of MIUI] is advising people not to buy the M2. He's used two engineering versions of the phone so far, and both of them have dead pixels, and has heard reports of the same problem being had by a few people with the engineering version in China.
Does this change anyone's opinion on the device? Would this sort of thing be fixed for the full retail version?
And just to clarify: no, there's no MicroSD card support. There's USB OTG, but that's it, in terms of removable storage.
I heard this too, I placed my order before these comments about the device, the device gets fully released in 2days which seems little time to change the screen :/ I'm thinking of cancelling my order. I'm from the UK and if the device has problems its going to be a nightmare to get it sorted :/
If i'm not wrong then the launch-unit batch went into production after the engineering units were released. Hopefully Xiaomi fixed the dead pixel issue, along with the other issues the engineering device had.
Appearently Xiaomi is going global at the end of the year, so they will probably take software support and hardware quality (more) seriously too!
It's also due to launch on Friday, for those of you who missed that.

Hi people, I also got this phone.
I come because I need some help, I'm trying to make AOSP running on this phone. It compiles ok and starts using the prebuilt kernel from Xiaomi, but I got problems at the very beginning of booting. I don't if I should make a thread about that..
