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 question is: Is one of thos phones that broke in two monts? because quality is also in the case.

I must admit I'm waiting for the catch as at the moment it all sounds too good to be true.

Something already as decent as ZTE Blade ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZTE_Blade ) costs half as much as the discussed phone, also without contract of course. It is on the market for almost a year, no major issues reported. Throwing in a better SoC, battery, more current amounts of memory, and slightly larger screen - all that a year later - can't be that much more expensive.

AND the Blade is up-to-date thanks to CyanogenMod (officially supported phone).
