Xiaomi, the company run by ‘the Chinese Steve Jobs’, offers Airplay support on Smart TV


Xiaomi, the Chinese company noted for its similarity to Apple’s marketing style, has launched a Smart TV which claims to have AirPlay support. We’re not sure if Apple licensed AirPlay or if it, like a few other things (pictured below),  is a hacked version.

Xiaomi chairman and CEO Lei Jun has been described as ‘the Chinese Steve Jobs‘, dressing in blue jeans and black shirts for his Apple-like product launches.

The company makes a range of Android handsets which closely resemble iPhones. Xiaomi recently overtook Apple in smartphone market share in China, a position Apple hopes to change with the launch of the iPhone 5C.
