China's brands gaining in China
The FT reported this week that Best Buy's Shanghai stores have witnessed a rapid turn away from Japanese and Korean brands and a move towards Chinese ones. Lenovo, Haier and TCL were mentioned specifically. It would be interesting to find out what products are involved in this trend. I suspect foreign brand mobile phones remain strong, but perhaps Chinese consumer are moving towards cheaper Chinese brands in computing.
