MoMo Beijing #28 Shanzhaiji (山寨机) 2009-05-11
| 更多

By now you probably heard the term “Shanzhai” or “bandit”. Trend, counter-culture, anti-mass market, there are many ways to describe it. In the telecom industry, the estimated 250 million “bandit phones” or shanzhaiji (山寨机)manufactured in 2008 had a deep impact on the results of tier 1 manufacturers and major local brands. This #28 session titled “Shanzhaiji: Creative copycatting, industry threat?” will investigate the economics, legal, creative and cultural aspects of what has been recognized as a major force in the mobile market. The event will take place at OrangeLabs’ Innovation Gardens in Zhongguancun.
