In other words - a non-story or at most a story about quality issues at the reborn Nokia.
But luckily the URL pointed to China ... so we can make the story about that ... with a big red communist flag, talk about mass surveilliance, human rights, future invasions and so on ...
I don't really think this is because of racism; I mostly just think it is because we are idiots that prefer big hyperboles rather than simple explanations of non-issues.
To me it is obvious that it is Nokia that is sloppy and having quality issues.
Because it gives more attention.
The real story here is that the venerable brand of Nokia now is being used to sell sub-quality phones.
Nokia isn't being shielded in the article.
On the off chance that you're a native Chinese speaker, are you able to figure out what the purpose of device self-registration is? My Chinese is unfortunately not good enough to easily find information on it.
