True. And I am sure that in China, where there are multiples of accessories since they are made there, that a number of case options will be made available. 

But I think Xiaomi is on to something. They have the potential to be a serious contender in mobile devices. But right now, they are going to focus on China first.

Apple got some mileage out of it with its original iMac. But then Xiaomi doesn't have a brand that rivals Apple's.

One problem ...
This would be a great idea if people didn't almost universally immediately pop their tablets into protective cases.
