Nowadays, just bring a smartphone and you can master your life in many cities of China. In addition to the mobile payment, you may use the smartphone to search for the most authentic cuisine in the neighborhood, track your delivery order, and find yourself the best transportation. Moreover, you can also use the APP on smartphone to get in line or to find someone to help with running errands. Hence, it’s probably more appropriate to describe today’s China as “a country at your fingertips”.

Almost all problems can be solved by a smartphone. Such a convenient life in China benefits from the diffusion of the smartphone as well as the rapid development of mobile network infrastructure within the country. Even the farmers in remote rural villages can sell their self-grown food to the restaurants in big cities and communicate with customers any time and any place with the assistant of Internet and smartphone. Mobile Internet creates new opportunities for regional economic development.

Only five years ago, some people still wondered when China would step into the credit card and cashless era. Today, mobile payment is the start of a new era for China. And as the largest developing country, it’s not difficult to find China’s huge market potential for smartphone and mobile network.
