Samsung finds no evidence of underage workers at supplier HTNS Shenzhen

With so many companies recruiting outside factories to manufacture parts for their devices, we often hear about the working conditions at these factories. Samsung is something of an outlier in that it makes a lot of its part in-house, but there is still a small need for outside help, which means that the company isn't immune to controversy when one of its suppliers is allegedly operating outside the rules. One of these suppliers, HTNS Shenzhen Co., was recently accused of hiring underage works, allegations that Samsung discussed this weekend in a release on Samsung Tomorrow.

EROS 10-inch Shenzhen tablet: nice idea, shame about the battery

Can't wait until next Wednesday?  Have to have a sizeable webslate right now?  Then get yourself to China, my impatient friend, and pick up this 10.2-inch EROS tablet, an Atom N270 based Windows XP/Windows 7 machine that's on sale there for under 3,000 yuan ($440).  Your money gets you a 1366 x 768 resistive touchscreen, 720p HD video playback and some reasonably clean (if uninspiring) design.

Shenzhen HT560 MID packs VIA C7 CPU

Given how popular Android has tuned out to be among no-name tablet manufacturers, it's almost a surprise to see a new Windows XP slate.  Still, the Shenzhen Seed Industrial Co. HT560 has a few tricks up its sleeve: behind the 5.6-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen lurks VIA's 1GHz C7 processor rather than the Intel Atom we've come to expect, paired with 1GB of memory and between 8GB and 32GB of SSD storage.

Shenzhen MacBook Air clone packs 3G, removable battery, $249 price tag

MacBook Air clones coming out of China aren't in short supply, but the constant refreshing has at least pushed them beyond Apple's official model in some respects.  Shanzai have been taking a look at the Shenzhen Tong Men Tech Company's latest offering, and while it lacks some of the official Air's style, its removable battery, integrated 3G, relative surfeit of ports and $249 price tag go a long way to making up for it.

NSA snooped on Huawei and the Chinese Government

With each new day, a new skeleton tumbles out of the NSA closet; today we look into the news about spying on Huawei and the Chinese Government. It is common knowledge that the US government has been inquisitive about what is happening in China - so tracking former Chinese President Hu Jintao, the Chinese Trade Ministry and banks is predictable.
