The Flipkart Fiasco:
The launch was announced on 15th july & only those buyers who had registered till the 21st were eligible to buy the phone yesterday. The stock was limited and lasted just 38 minutes and 50 seconds according to flipkart. The high traffic received on flipkart caused it to crash several times because of which many registered customers were not able to buy the phone. They will have to wait for a week when the next sale starts on the 29th of july.
Apologies for the issues our customers are facing… the Mi 3 launch is keeping our site very busy. Working on getting this fixed ASAP.
