I find how Nubia works with Qualcomm fascinating, especially at a time Nubia's parent company ZTE has continued to invest in their own silicon designs. I am not certain how good ZTE's current version of apps processor is. But I sense that they are making progress.

Re: template for a new generation of Chinese phnoes?

Nubia has nothing to do with Nokia.

as a matter of fact.

N(i)u (pronounced Niu, stands for Bull in chinese)

Bi  (stands for private part in chinese)

In chinese Niu Bi means very awesome, shocking , extremely cool etc.

 

so it's a original brand name indeed.

If you don't live in China, chances are you haven't heard of any Chinese brands such as Oppo, Coolpad, Meizu or Nubia.

Most of them haven't come to the U.S. market yet, and as we all know, the US market where operators' power is strong is a hard nut to crack.

I have, howver, all the respect for nubia -- at least trying with its new brand both in China and U.S. We have no idea how they will ultimately succeed, but following ZTE's efforts at least gives us a small window of the future -- how this might all play out over time.

Is it a coincidence that Nokia and Nubia look interchangable?

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
