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.

I don't call a phone "Free".. or $200 .. when I have to sign my life away into a 3 year contract up here in Canada. I refuse to sign contracts, period. If I have no other choice, then the most I go is 1 year.

If I can get this phone for $300 brand new (200-250 used), that's perfect.

I'm hoping its bootloader allows for unsigned images (ie Cyanogenmod). Dual booting multiple environments could be really useful.
