China made up 27% of Q2 smartphone sales (the slowing U.S. was at 16%), says Canalys, with its 199% Y/Y growth far outpacing the 24% seen elsewhere. Samsung (SSNLF.PK) and Apple (AAPL) are doing well in China, though the iPhone's high price makes it dependent on wealthier (and perhaps slower-growing) coastal provinces. But NOK and others are having trouble competing with local vendors. Chipmakers SPRD, MRVL, and QCOM have decent Chinese exposure. (Q1 data)

    I'd like to see a breakout of how Nokia is desperately trying to fend off the unbroken waves of local vendors that undercut everyone.
