    Red Blackberry: Will a Chinese web giant buy RIM?

    Blackberry China. Going local?

    RIM, maker of Blackberry, is dying. Following ongoing losses, layoffs, management changes, and a diminishing market share, the company hired J.P. Morgan and RBC to help it "review its strategic options". A this point, selling the company or parts of it is the most likely option. We expect the Microsoft-Facebook alliance will be interested, together with the usual hardware suspects, including those from Korea and Japan, and maybe even Amazon. But we think the best outcome would be for Blackberry to be sold to one of China's online media giants. And here's why. ...Read More

    Baidu’s “affordable smartphone”: Lost in the Cloud?

    Baidu's new smartphone | Source: Zol.com.cn

    Baidu, China's largest search engine, launched a new smartphone yesterday in attempt to gain a foothold in the country's exploding mobile space. The phone runs on the Baidu Cloud operating system, and is bundled with 100 GB of cloud storage on Baidu's servers. Baidu partnered with Sichuan's Changhong to manufacture the phone and with China Unicom to provide data packages. Baidu previously teamed with Dell to launch Baidu Cloud, but the venture flopped, probably because the RMB 2,999 price tag made it an unattractive alternative to better offerings in the same price range (see Sohu's coverage, in Chinese). The new phone is officially called Changhong H5018, but we prefer to call it the Bai-Phone. It is priced at RMB 899, under most smartphones in the market, and 3-6 times less than Apple's iPhone 4S, Samsung's Galaxy SII/SIII/Nexus, the HTC One, and the ZTE Era. We encourage every attempt to bring smartphones to the Chinese masses, but despite its aggressive pricing, the Bai-Phone will likely struggle to gain a meaningful share of China's crowded mobile market. ...Read More

    Amazon’s adventures in China’s e-commerce jungle

    Amazon China.

    Amazon, the worlds largest online retailer, is willing to run losses in order to become China's third largest e-commerce site by sales. The company's China chief, Wang Hanhua, described the company's journey as a "marathon" in a Reuters interview earlier this week. Aiming for number 3 might sound too modest for a web titan like Amazon, but looking at the competitive environment sheds light on the company's China challenge. ...Read More
