MII will regulate handset quality

20 Apr 2005

The Chinese Ministry of Information Industry (MII) has revealed that it is to begin monitoring the output of domestic and overseas mobile handset manufacturers which have failed product quality tests in an effort to improve the standard of phones available on the Chinese market. The Ministry has not named the companies which will be under scrutiny “to give them the last chance to make improvements within the time limit”. Dow Jones Newswires reports that the MII has carried out an investigation into the standard of handsets from both local and international vendors and it found that product quality from certain manufacturers was not satisfactory.
