As you can see from the video, the phone vendor is an enthusiastic girl who seems pretty familiar with the phone, selling the phone like it was […]
08/17/2011, While we can’t verify the validity of the photo you see above, it appears that the photo was taken at a Wintek factory where workers were inspecting the alleged iPhone 5 screens.

08/16/2011, While China isn’t exactly known for creating original products when it comes to their own design, once in awhile we’ll be surprised at the devices they can come up with. Case in point, Oppo’s first ever smartphone, the X903. Running on Android, this phone sure doesn’t fail in the looks department but it is only mediocre when it comes to specs, especially when put up against other high-end devices from […]
08/15/2011, A while back we reported that there have been discoveries of fake Apple stores in China. These stores copied Apple’s own stores right down to the uniforms and interior design. China then proceeded to shut down some of these stores and recently even more stores got shut down, but it looks like some of these owners got wise and managed to find a way around it by renaming their stores.
08/12/2011, We do know that Apple has already begun proceedings against fake Apple Stores in China, and their cause is further aided by authorities in China’s southwestern city of Kunming have managed to pinpoint yet another 22 unauthorized Apple Stores.

08/11/2011, The Meizu Forums (in Chinese) is buzzing because Jack Wong (Meizu’s CEO) said that the upcoming Meizu MX was going to use a quad-core system on a chip (SoC / processor) to power its user experience.

08/10/2011, China is slowly but surely building up their military presence and power, starting sea trials of the country’s first aircraft carrier. This aircraft carrier had humble beginnings, coming in the form of a 60,000 ton warship which was purchased as an empty shell from the Ukraine in 1998, and it has taken over a decade to transform it into what it is today – a fully fledged aircraft carrier. This […]
08/08/2011, Love or hate Apple, you’ve got to admit that they create insanely popular products that seem to blend extremely clever marketing and innovative products, which is why it’s really not surprising to find out that there are people out there who have been creating fake Apple products or attempting to smuggle them into the country and making a quick and tidy profit. While the concept of smuggling isn’t exactly new, […]
08/05/2011, It wasn’t too long ago that we reported on fake Apple stores popping up in China. When we say fake we mean that the shops have been designed to look like official Apple retail outlets, from the furniture used, to the interior design, right down to the uniforms that the staff wear. In fact the staff think that they are working for Apple, when in reality they are not.
