It looks like Motorola will be the big smartphone winner in China after scoring three huge contracts with rivals China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom. The outfit says that it has contracts to provide all three with Android-based smartphones.
In a statement Motorola said that it has launched eight Android-based smartphones and covering the WCDMA, CDMA and TD-SCDMA standards in the Chinese market. Motorola hopes to strengthen its market position with further cooperation with China's big three, the statement said.
Motorola and China Mobile will offer the Android-based OPhone 2.0 (TD-SCDMA) MT810. With China Unicom, Motorola will introduce the WCDMA Android-based A1680. For China Telecom, the US vendor has the XT 806 Android 2.1 device. All three smartphones are under the Ming series line.
China has been a devil of a market for suppliers to get into. Apple in particular has spectacularly failed to dent this huge market.
