    This info has been culled from what is essentially an Apple iPhone article and the iPhone's struggle in China with China Mobile.

    China Mobile has twice the number of subscribers as China's next two largest mobile players China Unicom and China Telecom.

    Meanwhile, rivals are circling, eating away at Apples smartphone market share. Samsung Electronics, Lenovo Group and little-known Chinese brand Coolpad held the top three slots in the third quarter, according to IDC.

    All three have relationships with China Mobile and offer smartphone models at different price points. Apple competes exclusively at the high-end, and even there, rivals are rolling out models with China Mobile. Last week, Nokia said it planned to release its latest Lumia smartphone with Chinas top carrier, which is also expected to launch Research in Motions new Blackberry 10, analysts predict.

    if true, this is a huge achievement for RIM. It's something Apple still hasn't been able to do.

    Not to generalize.. but I will here Most folks in China are heavily into name brands and anything that will cement them as high class. If RIMs marketing position is for business and not for gamers I think it will be adopted well over there.
