By now most of you may already know that the attractively priced Xiaomi M1 phone will support both MIUI and original Android ROMs (though not simultaneously on its dual-partition system); but earlier today, CEO Lei Jun confirmed that October will see the release of said device's original Android 2.3.5 ROM, meaning the keen beans won't have to wait long after the Xiaomi M1 Phone's launch in the same month. Xiaomi M1 phone is on pre order now, and will deliver at Mid-October. The price is about $399.99 at some online store.
More interestingly, Lei Jun also announced that his Beijing-based chums will be rolling out a original Android Ice Cream Sandwich build in January, which is about two or three months after official launch date. Sounds about right if you look at previous releases, and we shall look forward to observing the Android Ice Cream Sandwich battle between the Xiaomi Phone, and the rumored Samsung Nexus Prime.
