It seems fairly ridiculous to hype a product so much pre launch and then not have it available or so little stock.   Its bad preparation and narrow sighted.

How would you know how many units were available? In China they sold 200,000 units in 5 minutes. it's frustrating not to get one (I didn't unfortunately!) but sometimes it's about luck and nothing else

I personally have no idea how many pads were made available.   it could have been 2 or 20,000.    lol.  No one knows and it's the other guy who made that point about numbers and  not me.  
My point is that there is little point to hype up a product so much pre launch and then can't meet consumer demand.     It's not good business or indeed good publicity.   It irks me so much that the UK isn't treated seriously by Xiaomi.   I would love to see Xiaomi behave more  like a global player and not cherry picking it's markets so decisively.

But the early bird offers are always limited to certain numbers, they wouldn't obviously bring their entire stock in to sell it at reduced price. My hope is that they bring it back soon because even the original price is very tempting!
