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.

The average 'budget oriented consumer' would have no idea that this device is in any way different then any of the other 100's of models out there.

Given that (a) it's not from a known brand, (b) the screen is not as high quality as competing models and (c) it's more expensive I'd say it's pretty safe to assume it's not going have a tangible impact on the market.
