Shanzaiji (Bandit Phone) Culture
In 2008 alone over 250 million Shanzhaiji handsets where produced. The handsets are mainly targeted for China’s rural markets and are extremely cheap feature-to-feature compared to established brands (starting at $40). Shanzhaiji manufacturers have a wild ambition to innovate and endlessly cater the needs of customers. They are able to constantly adapt, innovate and tweak their offering as the turnaround time is only 3 months for a handset (instead of the 9 months that established brands need). The revolution is heavily supported by the Taiwanese Mediatek which has a 90% share of Mainland China’s mobile chip set market.
