About Abacus

Once, China just built the rest of the world’s products. Now they’re building their own, coming up with new solutions to serve an enormous population at home. But what does that mean for everyone else?

Based in Hong Kong, the city that blends East and West, we’ll bring you all the latest news, reviews and plenty of video showing what’s happening in consumer technology in China.

But they aim to go beyond the headlines to bring you a deeper context, breaking down who the big players are in China’s tech scene and how they rose to prominence.

As Chinese technology grows and spreads, so does the need to understand what’s driving it. That’s Abacus’ goal. Abacus is all about China tech for the rest of the world. Read press release HERE.
