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.

What make companies so happy about smartphones? High-end smartphones is a high margin market, unlike the feature phone market.

It was obvious that one day, one manufacturer would choose to operate with a smaller margin to grab market share.
