Technology leapfrogging by a late adopter of technologies means skipping intermediate technologies and adopting the latest technologies. In this way, this late adopter would be exposed to unprecedented opportunities offered by the new technologies. This case study focuses on China’s attempt at leapfrogging to mobile phone telecommunications technology. It provides a description of the underlying forces involved in shaping and influencing this leapfrogging attempt. Students or readers are encouraged to analyse this case from their contextual perspective—may it be from the standpoint of a competing country, foreign investor, competing marketing corporation, policy maker, or consumer. Instructors of teaching cases may perhaps consider assigning different roles to students in discussing this case within a group.
