Q: The wonder of China

I really think one day everything techno we have will be made in China by some Chinese company with a really wierd sounding name.

Case in point: my friend bought a new phone yesterday for RM 400 bucks. Made in China. Designed in China. Christened the Holiday Q9. Sounds familiar? Check out the Motorola Q:

Yeaps, all that goodness (notice the 2.0 MP Camera vs. the 1.3 MP Camera?) for just RM 400. China's world domination might not be far off. Provided they can improve the build quality.

PS. For those of you sniggering, yes I'm also aware of NOKLA phones floating around. :)

Well ... lets just say ... China folks are good at reengineering ... i think thats how Japan started too ... they didnt really invent anything but they are sure good at improving things

julian said...

Is pretty cheap at 400RM! I wonder about the quality though...

liyuan said...

Heya! looking good? haha.. i want a new phone does that mean that i should fly over to china to get it???

davidlian said...

@micheginny: Yeah, and now that so many things have been invented, it's about adding the "China touch" to them.

@julian: build quality feels cheap. :(

@liyuan: Yeah, I checked in the mirror today, as good looking as ever. And no, if you're looking for a new phone, you can pop by LowYat or Sungei Wang.
