According to the industry insiders, iCloud smartphones enables users to store personal data on remote servers. Some mobile phone operators say the launch of the new smartphones marks a revolution of the market.

Wang Jian, Chief Architect in Alibaba Group said, "We aim to tell consumers that a new era of smartphones is coming, that people using a smartphone without the cloud service will be left behind. It will become just as common as people preferring to buy phones with built-in cameras."
