Aliyun-OS

China has the biggest mobile market today, with about 1 billion users. Since smartphones currently constitute a small minority of this industry, there is much room for growth. But with Google mostly absent from China, who will fill in the supposed void? Local e-commerce company Alibaba wants to eventually dominate the market with its own Aliyun OS.

Xperia TX SL

Both the Xperia TX and SL are up for grabs on Sony’s Chinese official online store, and they are both kind of pricey. The TX, also known in the past as the LT29i or the “Hayabusa”, is very similar to the “T” flagship unveiled in Berlin and expected to come to the US soon via AT&T.

Lenovo Smartphones

As far as the American and European markets are concerned, Lenovo might not be a considered a well-known smartphone manufacturer. But according to a recent study, the Chinese company was the second most successful smartphone manufacturer in its home country during the second quarter of 2012, with a market share of 11% of all Chinese smartphone sales in the second quarter. For Lenovo, this is most-welcome progress, as it only ranked seventh in Q1 2012 rankings.
