Analysys says that this shows China's smart phone is a promising market full of business opportunities.

Analysys International thinks that the features of the major four operating systems and seven platforms are key factors to determine the market growth rate and market share in China's smartphone market. Among which, the convenience and speed of the OS, the high integration, low power and low cost per unit of chip set in smartphone platform will be premier contributors to smart phone performance and market share.

"The relatively short lifecycle of smartphones requires that the designing period of smart phone should also be shortened," said Fu Xinghua, analyst from Analysys International. "Multi-SOC (System on Chip) should be adopted to optimize the design and SIP (Silicon In Package) should be used to improve the efficiency of IC."

He added that "Efficiency on design, manufacturing and packing will determine the chip performance and launching time of product to enter the market and thus has a critical influence on the market share."
