By the end of 2011, the number of China's mobile phone netizens had reached 356 million, up 17.5 percent compared to that of the end of 2010 and ranking first in the world. It is expected that the number will reach 600 million and exceed the number of China's traditional Internet users in 2012.

More than a half of the world's mobile phone terminals are produced in China.

China's mobile Internet is growing rapidly and keeps generating new industrial patterns, business patterns, commercial modes and considerable economic benefits.

However, behind the great prosperity, China's mobile Internet industry is still facing a huge challenge. It is an urgent problem currently faced by China's mobile Internet that how China should change it from the "most exciting market of the world in the mobile Internet era" to a leader and innovative region of the industry.

Only if China makes technological breakthroughs can it truly win the right to speak globally.

The CEO of Apple uses the word "unimaginable" to describe the sale in the Chinese market. China is turning into the most exciting market of the world in the mobile Internet era.

However, in the industrial chain of the global mobile Internet, China is just a super-large market, a manufacturing base and investment destination with good return, but not an innovative origin.

The lake of fundamental and core technologies and the insufficiency of innovation ability have been the "Achilles' Heel" of China for a long period. Currently, in a lot of mobile Internet applications and commercial modes in China, relevant U.S. products still could be seen.
