One thing that is noticeable is that the Chinese really seem to have a thing for phones with black front and white rear casings as so many of the new phones announced have this type of design.

Not a fan of this colour scheme myself, but it must be fashionable over there!

OK, just want to say that Touch-Us.com are a credible alternative to Merimobiles...had a chat with their customer service and they seem eager to solve any problems!

Actually, I've just noticed that pretty much none of the phones mentioned in this thead appear to support the MHL standard.

In fact, it seems that the newer Huawei phones don't seem to advertise support for MHL either, though a number of their earlier devices did.

Very strange.

Does anyone know what the actual situation with these Chinaphones and MHL support is? Do they not bother with MHL to cut costs?

NEO N003 looks interesting. 1.5GHz MTK6589T, 1080p, OGS, OTG, HDMI (MHL), F2.2 Rear camera. 3000mAh battery. Allegedly $206 from lightake on pre-order for the 1GB/4GB version or $273 for the 2G/32G version.
Aparenty release has been delayed until 25/7 now because of the turbo upgrade. http://forum.lightak...22&TopicID=2715

http://lightake.com/...GB_Black_-64088

If it really is going to be that price then its on my shortlist! Anyone one know what dev support would be like?

The problem is the way I understand it, the 1.2GHz version was never released, they upgraded it to the 1.5GHz version which won't be released until 25/7, so any place claiming to have stock is wrong.

No, it is released, most probably, but it is the same story as with UMI x2, and maybe other phones.
They produce their new model with mtk6589T soc (read: Suddenly Overclocked Chip :))
and then they keep silent about previous 1.2MHz variant.
Look at the topic on neo`s n003 official forum - N003 is 1.2MHz there.
I bet you`ll have both variants to choose :)

Thanks dakok! Finding the right info about a phone is so damn confusing! :wacko:

Right, after google translating 4PDA.RU, I plumped for a Jiayu G4 at Touch-Us.com... there were literally zero phones that fulfilled my needs :P
edit: now just waiting for track...seems to be lots of screenshots on the forum there to show the deliveries and great bubble wrap packaging
