Xiaomi And Hasbro Cross Promotion Campaign In China Brings Us Tablet Soundwave!
Xiaomi (the largest Mobile Device Brand in China) has teamed up with Hasbro to help cross promote their products to the Asian market. Hugo Barra, Xiaomi’s Vice President, took to facebook to inform us of a new venture between the companies.
They companies have created a new transforming tablet device which they are calling Soundwave!! They are saying it will be ready for shipping from China on May 13th and it should be available for about $20 US.
Read the release below:
“Xiaomi and Hasbro are collaborating for the first time crowdfunding a kickass robot model named Soundwave in China. Instead of a vehicle transforming into a robot, this time, it’s Mi Pad 2 that gets the Transformers treatment. How cool is that?
R&D worked really hard to ensure that the color, details and feel are exactly the same as Mi Pad 2. They were challenged at turning such a slim 7mm tablet into a 3D robot, but they managed to do so with a 30-step folding assembly.”
