It was yet another busy week for us at Chinavasion.

We got a lot of traffic from our Iron Samurai LED watch

thanks to a Oh Gizmo post (check it out here: and got a lot of name ideas from some of our followers at the Chinavasion Facebook page.

For everybody wondering about what to stock in general we put our heads together and released Hot 2009 Gadgets, 15+ Of The Hottest Selling Electronics For Resellers and for those just stuck with what to stock there’s the Great Last-Minute Gadget Christmas Gift Ideas.

We also got a lot of questions and we are answering some of the more common ones below so the whole world can see.

So read on as we look at the Chinavasion quality testing process, examine a Gizmo5 alternative for people who have suffered because of Google’s lapse in memory about its ‘do no evil’ policy, talk about different digital TV options and examine our latest windows mobile phone the El Portal.

Do you check the quality of goods before sending them?

Yes, all products you order go through stringent QC procedures before we send them out. These procedures include: function testing to ensure products perform well; checking appearance and packaging, selecting the correct socket type, etc. takes all necessary steps to keep our fault rate at lowest possible. However, sometimes faults develop which couldn’t be detected before. For example, occasionally rough handling by shipping companies and customs inspection can cause damage of a product.

If you have any difficulties whatsoever with the products, you can contact us and we will discuss the issue in an open, honest way. We will help you solve these problems to a level far beyond what you will receive from any other China-based seller.

Do you have any DTV products that work with ATSC or IMDB-T?

While many Chinese suppliers have focused on DVB-T Products as this is the standard the majority of the world has chosen there are still a few items out there which can work with the ISDB-T and ATSC signal.

For example, if you live in Brazil, Argentina, or a number of other South American countries, it is more than likely your broadcasters use ISDB-T:


And we’ve got an ISDB-T car DVD coming out very soon.

If you’re in North America or a US colony, then these ATSC devices will be more to your fancy.

And, before you ask, we are getting an ATSC dongle and ATSC car DVD for our shelves in the very near future.

Help! I want to install Gizmo5 on my Odyssey phone, but they’re no longer accepting new registrations since Google bought them. What can I do?

Funny you should ask. We just finished installing Nimbuzz ( ) on the M56 Odyssey and it seems to work well.

For those who don’t know about Nimbuzz, it’s like Gizmo5 in that it consolidates various chat programs into one.

Download their java file with the .jar extension, transfer to your phone’s memory and click on it. The Odyssey will prompt you to install it.

Just click on YES and you have a great Gizmo5 alternative.
