"The two Chinese firms will target the i6-Goal, as well as a separate Windows Mobile 6.1 version, called the i6-Win, at the China market. The companies have signed sales agreements "with a few well-known mobile phone distributors in China," says Qigi. TechFaith, an established manufacturer of Windows Mobile devices, announced an agreement with Qigi in October, under the terms of which it will become the "exclusive supplier" of phones to the latter company. Qigi, in turn, describes itself as "focused on Windows smartphones," making today's announcement of an Android variant something of a surprise.

"Instead of offering a dual-boot approach, the i6 comes in separate models. According to information posted on the website of Taiwan retailer ePrice, the two models differ only with respect to their operating system ROMs."
