每个手机厂商都有自己在社交网络上的“发言人”,他们既起着宣传、透露公司产品动态的出口,同时也起着连接用户、担当“临时客服”的作用。小米是雷军、卢伟冰、林斌,华为是余承东,一加是刘作虎,努比亚是倪飞。常程在加入小米后,并未浪费此前在联想积累的几百万粉丝,也加入小米“发言人”阵营。

OPPO此前并没有类似的角色,直到近两年才逐渐跟随“主流”推出自己在社交网络上的“代言人”——沈义人。

88年出生的沈义人在与余承东、雷军、常程等人的潜在竞争中并未落入下风,“OPPO”品牌也被他运用的有声有色。

印度,一个万亿级消费金融市场

海外投资笔记 01月30日

分享海外投资最有价值的资讯干货

  你对印度的印象是否还停留在浮满垃圾的恒河水岸?     还是街头脏乱的印度小吃?     还是火车吊挂的拥挤人群?     还是破烂不堪的贫民窟?     种种碎片印象演绎了一个落后、穷迫、破旧的印度。如果您以偏概全的认为这就是整个印度,那就大错特错了。     印度,人口总数13.4亿,占世界总人口的17.8%,是世界人口第二大国。   这个“开挂的国度”潜藏着巨大的消费潜力和成长空间。印度借助全球化带来的先进科技和生产方式正快速发展着,逐渐形成了一块蓄势待发的肥沃之地。   ....

Doug Young 12月03日

财新传媒英文部编辑

Bottom line: Huawei's new push into India looks like a smart and well-timed move to take advantage of the country's emerging middle class, and could help it take the global smartphone crown by the end of next year.

As it creeps up on its goal of becoming the world's largest smartphone maker, the controversial Huawei appears to finally be waking up to the potential of the fast-growing India market. That's the key takeaway from some Indian media reports last week, which quoted a company executi...

过去十年,中国在全球经济中拥有压倒性实力,现在也没有迹象显示中国实力会削弱。许多公司试图把握中国科技热潮,但从中受益的企业寥寥无几。随着全世界开始迈向5G,经济领域在发生变化,并且中国很有可能将成为引领者。与此同时,中国也希望在5G方面拔得头筹、向全世界表明他们是领...

Bottom line: Apple should be able to extend its return to growth in China into at least one more quarter, while Xiaomi should also be able to continue posting strong double-digit growth for the next year.

Bottom line: Smartisan's new funding and plans to produce 5-6 smartphones a year look like an anomaly in the highly competitive market, and it's unlikely to survive as a standalone entity over the next 5 years.

Smartisan gets new funding

Bottom line: Xiaomi's rising market share and securing of $1 billion in new financing underscore its nascent turnaround may have some legs, even as its position remains tenuous in the cutthroat market.

金立守正出奇,开抢OPPO、VIVO地盘

郝智伟 06月02日

前《IT经理世界》杂志资深记者

孙子兵法说:“凡战者,以正合,以奇胜。”行军打仗如此,商场竞争也是如此。尤其在“前有狼,后有虎,中间还有小白鼠”的科技产业,企业必须这样“守正出奇”,才能既保持核心特色,又掌握趋势风口,从而长远地生存发展下去。

没错,所谓“守正”,就是要在竞争激烈的商场“红海”,找到自己的定位,由此形成差异化竞争,集结优势兵力、资源,做“一针捅破天”的产品,如此,实现颠覆式创新,单点突破,聚能成势,这是“安身,立命”;此后,借助旧势,高举俯冲,“出奇兵”,扩张商业边界,由此,实现规模经济、范围经济,满足旺盛...

SMARTPHONES: Oppo Lands in India Protest Storm

Doug Young 03月31日

Bottom line: A mass protest against Oppo in India over a Chinese manager's desecration of the national flag won't impact the company beyond a week or two, and reflects cultural sensitivity issues Chinese firms will face as they expand abroad.

Bottom line: Oppo's major new cricket sponsorship deal shows its commitment to India, but may have to be renegotiated if and when the company's fortunes decline in the next 1-2 years following its meteoric rise.
