First Mtk Android 2.1 Smartphone Cell Phone W Wifi, H6

Shanzhai mobile phones was initiated by MTK phone chips because MTK chips let people make mobile phones without needing a big investment. With a few versions of MTK chips, China shanzhai phone makers have been copied, designed and manufactured millions of MTK phones over the years and at the same time it has bought fortune to the Shaizhan industry. But it seems MTK phone sales brake has been stepped since smart phones like iphone and android phones begin to boom. I do not think MTK will surrender so easily and it would embrace the tide too. See, right, it is introducing its smart phone chips. A few days ago I saw this android mobile phone H6 based on MTK chip MTK6516. I think MTK6516 is sending a message to the mobile phone industry that “I’m coming again!”. Clearly MTK6516 can support smart phone system like android. Good thing is that the first MTK android phone H6 I saw started from Android 2.1, rather than old verions of android o/s like 1.5. MTK phones success came from enabling people to enjoy multimedia features on mobile phones without costing a lot. Can MTK do this again on high end smart phones? I hope it will and if it can bring down the owning cost of a smart phone like android phones considerably, it might make another history. For this H6, the retailing price from us is USD149 and this should be an acceptable price for customers but let’s wait for future even low cost models. (One pity when I test it, the app market does not work on this phone. I have no idea if the feature could be added if someone makes an OEM order.)
