@Bakare.You are right,some how the so called China phones have started to make sense to consumers and the phones are gaining more ground in the market place right now. Infact consumers think about these phone before thinking of brand like Nokia and the likes just because they are quality phone-agreed but expensive when compared to china phones
@Adeniji taking into account the larger percentage of China population leave on low wages/salaries. High quality design mobile phones - notable famous ones like Apple's iphone, Rim's Blackberry and Samsung surely attract high prices in market so as to maintain profit margin.
So to promote local manufacturing mobile devices in china, i think low quality design phones will attract larger number of consumers, who may find it difficult to fork out more money on high end smartphones.
Eventhough this is great news for handset manfacturing people. China government should control the gray market to maintain the healthy relationship between seller and user as there is no gurantee for the products bought in gray market.
Increase in sales of smartphones in China is not surprising considering the fact that larger percent of the population shopping for low price phones. And besides, it also reported that target market for Gray phone manufacturers is also in Africa region.
If they are of high quality - EDGE, 3G and able to meet the standard regulatory requirements, i cant see reason for them remain unlicensed.
It's glad to read the shipments for smartphones will raise in China, however, as Handset/ Headset designer It was very surprising to read about the small gray handset manufacturers, I've been many times in the sotuh area in China, never heard of this before.
This is great news for handset makers. I'm curious about how many more smartphones they would sell if China didn't have so many restrictions on their social content for their citizens. If sales of smartphones are growing this fast while helping to eliminate counterfeits, most companies should have a positive outlook at Chinas market.
This is such an inspiring article. Could it be that China is offering more features on that smartphone than other manufacturers or lower price and what of if the reason for such increase in shipment is as a result of preference for quantity over quality.
If all there conditions apply then we should expect to see more of china's consumer good in market.
