Friday FAQ image
It’s been a busy week at Chinavasion.

Not only did most of the team arrive back at work and but we saw the launch of the GIANT 7 Inch Touch Screen GPS Navigator (FM Transmitter, Bluetooth) with the very clear 800 x 480 screen resolution.


We also managed to come out with the very disruptive Chinese New Year, unscathed with happy resellers and quicker shipping than competitors could ever dream of.

So without further ado lets look at some of the more common questions we saw this week.

The CVFD-M83 has skype on the image available but the product description doesn’t tell about skype, it tells about the Gizmo only, so does the product have skype?

You say this phone has Skype but I can only see writing for Gizmo5/Nimbuzz, so does the product have Skype?

When we started getting in WiFi-capable phones like the Odyssey – WiFi Quadband Dual-SIM Cellphone w/ 3 Inch Touchscreen and the Thunder – Quadband Dual SIM Wifi Touchscreen Worldphone we realised a fantastic potential, the ability to make calls for free with Voip services like Skype!

And while you can’t run Skype directly through some of our phones it is actually to your advantage because Nimbuzz and Gizmo5 is essentially Skype on amphetamines!

Not do they let you log into your Skype account and do everything that you could do through Skype normally, you can also use it to log into several other IM/VOIP accounts all in the same interface.

I want to set up a dropshipping account with you, how do I do that?

Not only is dropshipping from Chinavasion completely free it’s also really easy to do as well.

There is no need to special dropshipping account with us all you need to do is to follow the steps in this blog How To Order And Shop Online With Chinavasion.

The only difference between a dropshipping order and one that you will send to yourself is that you will put your customer’s address in the shipping address section.

You can learn more about dropshipping from the blog Dropshipping Made Easy, China Dropshipping Explained.

Or, if you really want to make some profits in the year of the tiger read our Hot Dropshipper Tips For A Successful 2010.

To combat this we suggest informing customers of a potential delay and perhaps purchasing a low level of reserve items.

By doing this you should be able to get through the holiday unscathed with lots of sales and no angry customers.


Product Review



The Robot – 2.8 Inch Touchscreen Cellphone with Android OS [CVNC-M80]
It’s finally happened, the very first China cell phone with the Android OS has emerged and it is good. Behold….. the robot.

  • Is this a an original Android Cellphone? Yes, the Android (OS) Operating System is an Open Source software, available from Google for developers
  • Can I use this phone in the United States? No. This phone is a dual band GSM 900/1800 cellular phone. It will work in Europe and other parts of the world that use the 900/1800 mhz standard, but it will not work in North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico)
  • Do I really need to set my computer to Beijing time in order for the software to work?Your computer needs to have its home city and date style to be Beijing style. You can set the date and time on your computer to your local time, but the computers home city and date format should be set to Beijing.
  • How can I forward or delete a text message?
    When you are browsing through your text messages, you can just touch and hold down on the screen for 2 seconds and a pop up window will appear with options to delete, forward, etc.
  • Is there a faster way to put the phone in silent mode?
    To put the phone in silent mode, press the power ON/OFF button and you will be given the option to switch off the phone or put it on silent mode.
  • How can I access the App Store directly from the Android superphone?
    First, go to using your computer, and download an app called “AndAppStore”, This app lets you access the (free) store directly on your new Robot Android superphone and download apps, wallpapers, pictures, and more. Download the “AndAppStore” and install it via the included Micro SD card, then run the File Manager on the Robot superphone, and install the “AndAppStore”.
