They WILL become the mainstream alternative to MS and Apple over the next few years and Lenovo has recognised / encouraged this.
It wouldn't entirey surprise me if at some point down the road MS realise that keeping their PoS going is hugely expensive and they take over Canonical. Ubuntu becoming their main OS progressively, Windows becoming eventually a legacy VM within Ubuntu.
Gupta is fairly dismissive of ... Xiaomi's strong figures...
...People won't have the confidence to splurge £1,000 (or more) on a new phone. Gupta expects that manufacturers will align their product roadmaps with this new reality, producing more devices in the $300 to $500 range...
Gupta clearly not understanding why Xiaomi gained sales unlike the others. Xiaomi are priced right where most people are prepared to fork out for a very decent spec and quality of phone, those people not being drawn in to the number of GHz, 3-4 lenses, extortionate pricing, fashion.
All these China lovers here, and only loved by those who hate Trump. For the record, I dislike both.
For those of you only born yesterday and not possessing any significant world history (UK and US school history lessons don't count...even if they might exist), China has been copying western tech for decades, it's the quick and obvious route to catch up. Our spies do it too for our benefit. It's a fact of life.
As for Wah-way, surely no large tech company in China is not free of the reach of the State and its spies. And before you cry...it's exactly the same with US companies, and no doubt UK companies.
