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.

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


They may not be able to read, but they can definitely count, really really well. Most of them will do complex calculations in their head in a second.

I've met business men in India who can tell you exactly where you are from, even down to the which town you are from, and the fact that you studied in the US for a year etc.
