At Barcelona MWC, we seldom see booths from Chinese companies other than ZTE, Huawei and Lenovo. Aside from these tech giants, few Chinese companies demoed their products at this year’s tech gathering. Of those who did, Meizu, Meitu Phone and LeTV are upstart domestic hardware manufacturers. In the app category, keyboard app TouchPal caught our eye, alongside Cheetah Mobile and App Annie. 

TouchPal has been focusing on the overseas market since its establishment, maintaining close cooperation with numerous telecom carriers and smartphone manufacturers. (HTC’s latest flagship product the M9 has  TouchPal pre-loaded as the default input method worldwide). Karl Zhang and Susan Li, two of TouchPal’s co-founders, have become frequent visitors to MWC.
