Huge market but where is the money?

Look at Nokia and Motorola who poured lots of money and resources in the 
Chinese market. It worked well in the late 90s, but nowadays Chinese 
handset vendors have more than 50% of the market, and Nokia and Motorola's 
share are less than 10%. Absolute sales number are now much higher though. 
Chinese handset vendors are marketing/planning companies who outsource 
design/manufacturing and only do the marketing. Guess who indirectly 
financed the know-how used in those design shops.

You can find a more detailed article about this in the wireless watch 
newsletter at www.japaninc.com.
