Android rules the worldwide smartphone market when it comes to market share, and its dominance in China could have a lot to do with that. At the end of the first quarter of 2013, Google’s platform claimed a whopping 51.4% share of all smartphones owned in China.

Equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, the K900 is yet another “phablet,” but unlike the rest, this one’s equipped with an Intel Atom processor.
