Xiaomi Mi 3 sale: Will Flipkart crash again?

Xiaomi is all set for a sale again on Flipkart! The phone has created a huge buzz after its launch in India. After the webstore giant crashed all three times when they organized a sale for Xiaomi Mi3, customers were quite unhappy with the responses. At the last sale, Flipkart crashed and later claimed that their entire stock of was sold out in 60 seconds.

However, the website is all set for a new grand sale which will start at 2 pm today with some tips for the customers. Home page of Flipkart suggests that people wishing to buy the phone should be logged in to their site 2-3 hours before the sale actually begins. The registration for the sale has now been closed which will allow only the registered members to try their luck to get the ‘Dragon in your pocket’.

    It is very much possible. The web server queues requests and as soon as the offer opens, the queued requests are processed. Once the limit is reached, it closes the offer. This could happen in milliseconds. The real problem is, the stocks are too small. 15000 and 20000 phones are nothing for India’s market size. Why should Flipkart ruin their reputation by making it a farce? It is not like they are making thousands of crores out of this. Their margin is quite slim.
