    Wait, the prizes are Apple products? Is this some kind of joke? Where's the Galaxy Tab or Samsung Android Laptop? This is why I think the Chinese are so very, very wierd!

    There are lots of prizes. Hopefully I can learn from the great Pele and whip out a beautiful theme in hopes to win a MI ONE.

    Maybe it was down to shipping issues to your country, not 100% sure but I can find out in the morning when there is a staff member to ask at Xiaomi?

    Cheers,
    Mark

    wierd? I guess you means weird.
    If you can have a choice,which one do you want most?Samsung Android Laptop?Macbook Air?
    Apple's products are the most useful non-windows devices of the world,of course,we use android phone,but you really can't say android is the best os in laptop.

    An Android tablet would make more sense. Yet to see a real commercial android laptop product.... not sure I want to... :D

    I think considering all things, macs are GREAT for android development out of the box with little or no change to the system drastically. Seems an appropriate prize as well given the worlds designers generally use apple products.

    Designers are also more towards iPads for functionality. Just saying :)

    Spoke to my friend at Xiaomi and it seems you MAY enter the competition. If you do experience problems or feel that there is some stipulation to prevent you from entering please let me know as soon as possible and I will try to resolve the issue for you.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    So has there been any announcement? Admittedly I can read Simplified Chinese, but I can't see any new developments on the site which would indicate a winner and runners up ave been announced.

    Since theme support pretty much sucks, I don't know what has happened. Its difficult to build themes for the contest when they don't work properly.
