Starting on October 28, the new 20,000 unit batch of UMi X1 will go on sale at a reduced price of 999 yuan ($159).

It’s exactly a month to the day that the last batch of 20,000 was released. So looks like current output is at 20,000 units a month. Though, this is what’s released to the public. It’s very possible additional units are being produced for retailers and wholesalers.

Those buying outside China will likely be purchasing the phone at more than $159, but still should see a reduction in cost from the current $250 price tag retailers are touting.
