Let’s get straight into our top news out of China this week.
Sina appears to be finally taking the rest of the world — or at least Southeast Asia — seriously. Maybe too little too late, but this in combination with its new chat app (see #6 on this list) makes me feel like the company still has some fight left in it.
Black PR is nothing new, but the sheer scale of this firm that got busted in Wuhan is remarkable.
A huge get for Xiaomi, and a testament to how big the company has gotten just a couple years after it sold its first smartphone ever.
China’s most globally-successful camera app nabs some major funding!
Beijing, it sounds like, is finally taking real name registration very seriously. The old days of sneaking around the restrictions might be over.
Sina has a new chat app out, and it actually has some cool features. But is it enough to tempt anyone away from WeChat?
