They might be the second biggest cellphone manufacturer in China, but we'd forgive you if you've never heard of TCL Mobile or their arch-rival Ningbo Bird (we aren't making that up, either), but they have a new partnership with Alcatel and are ready to conquer the rest of the world, saying that by the end of the year they'll have a three megapixel cameraphone out that they plan to sell both in China and "the English-speaking countries". We think they're talking about us.
