Following the recent ban placed on smartphone sales on Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has shut down its Indian website for an unspecified amount of time. The ban was a result of Xiaomi allegedly infringing on Ericsson’s Standard Essential Patents (SEPs). In an Open Letter to the Indian Xiaomi enthusiasts, Hugo Barra, has acknowledged the ban on its devices. The VP of Xiaomi also apologizes to the fans for not being able to ship the 150,000 Redmi Note devices. Here is a copy of the letter as posted on Xiaomi India's webpage.
