Issue highlights include:

Lay of the Land:  Upward Mobility: India, China Battle for Markets

The next great battle in the mobile phone market will be fought in India. You probably knew that. A familiar scenario of indigenous mobile manufacturers (in this case, Indian mobile handset vendors) struggling against established mobile phone companies (like Nokia and Samsung) does not apply here.  Rather, unfolding is a race between India and China. The established players are confined to barracks rather than at the front line. Chinese OEMs and ODMs have long been critical to the emergence of India's mobile phone market.  Now, Indian handset vendors are waking up. While establishing their own design and development centers in India and sometimes in China, Indian handset vendors are now angling to ship their phones designed in India back to China.
