Emerging markets also seem to be appealing for growth potential. I expect that contracts limit market dynamics in the US.

Emerging markets, in many cases, are ahead of us when it comes to mobile payments and conducting financial transactions via a mobile device, so this is a good strategy.

Some of the best priced Smartphones with the newest technology & features that don't require a Wireless Carrier Contract are available through --Tab l e t Sp r i nt-- which is in the U.S. and carries the top China-based brands, including ThL and all products they offer have U.S.A. FCC and CE certification, one year warranty and may be used on GSM Networks AT&T, T-Mobile, and Straight Talk in the U.S. -- one of the best new models is the THL W100 ($164) -- with Quad core performance, a 4.5" high resolution screen, dual SIM slots and most of the same features typical of smartphones twice the price. Tab l e t Sp r i n t--also features four new Android tablets this month worth checking out--

What's not to like for under $200!? Is LTE worth the extra $ when HSPA+ 21Mbps isn't bad? It's not as thin as the X, but it's still less than 1/2" thick. It's missing 802.11ac, but it still supports 802.11n. The screen is small, but is that really a problem?

Overall, it seems like Google-rola made appropriate trade-offs for a cheap phone! It is perfectly adequate for my kids. If I want to pay $150-200 more, I can get the Nexus 5 and get more memory, 802.11ac, and LTE. I wish the Moto X was priced similar to the Nexus 5 and Google-rola would have two winners.
