Meizu’s Bigertech

Meizu is a company that I haven’t paid attention to because they’ve done only smartphones.

Now they’ve set up a subsidiary called Bigertech (yes, one “g”) and have a new Weibo account and new website.

Same-day update: Meizu and Bigertech are on Twitter. Meizu, MeizuTech, Bigertech.
