The Xiaomi Smart Multimode Gateway 2 is now crowdfunding in China for the discounted price of 189 yuan (~US$28); the gadget is expected to retail for 229 yuan (~US$34) in the future. The device is currently only available in white with a casing made from anti-IV material to prevent yellowing and a non-slip silicone pad on the base.
