FYI Acer and HTC are Taiwanese(ROC), not Mainland China(PRC).

I thought they were very well known outside of China. We even have forums on AF for the ZTE Blade, Engage, Flash, etc. Same with the Huawei Ascend, etc. ZTE and Huawei(both Chinese) have a huge international telecoms presence, with phones, 3G modems, plant, switching, transmission, etc. In fact apparently the US Govt. isn't too happy about it.

Samsung Dive is an example.
The cheapo unknown brands is what you normally see on Ebay and sold by Chinese wholesalers, That have no official distribution and support channels outside of China, and they often don't have much support inside of China either.

Isn't multi-windowing something that's only happened with 4.1 and 4.2? - a feature of the Android OS? I don't think Huawei and ZTE are pricing their phones aggressively outside of China, AFAICT they can just as expensive their Taiwanese and Korean counterparts in the UK.

Lenovo doesn't do much with cell-phones outside of Asia, but everyone knows their PCs and laptops of course(they bought IBM's PC division). Lenovo does offer a cloud storage service for their Android phones, similar to Samsung Dive.

We used to laugh at Korean cars...we don't now.
We laugh at Chinese cars.....
