PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While US Android users are all full of glee that they're finally getting the Samsung Galaxy S II in the United States, a far more significant Android smartphone is being developed... In China. It's faster than any other smartphone, has a beautiful and fluid user interface, top-notch hardware quality, a dual-partition setup so you can keep using the phone while it updates... And will sell for a mere $310, no contract or whatever other nonsense. Hello Xiaomi Phone.

Huawei has done something far better already :

It is not a phone as good as this Xiaomi, but it is good enough. Thanks to Google, it has stuff like speech recognition/transcription which is unvaluable in a country where many people don't know how to write (yes, even people rich enough to buy this phone may be illiterate. You'd be surprised to meet successful business(wo)men who can neither read nor count).

Maybe worth a news?
