New York Times: Bits: Chinese Company Aims Big With Android Smartphone: a “$150 smartphone that is similar to an iPhone user experience.” The company said it wanted to show that it could create a technologically advanced smartphone at a more affordable price.

The Ideos seems to have global ambitions. It runs on Android, predictably.
This is not really news. By now China has a track record. It was only a matter of time before some Chinese company entered the Android market.
It is the PC, Mac thing all over again. Android is PC and Android is poised to take over the iPhone in sheer volume.
