The routing to the IP was passing via dit-inc.us network and there were several interviews with Bill Xia the creator of Dynamic Internet Technology who was on the receiving end of the Chinese traffic at the time. They are in the same business as Ultrasurf but they might be doing a better job of it.
How to do DDOS properly
While I consider it highly unlikely that this was caused by a hacker attack, looking at the results I'm seeing the largest botnet in history.. The number of Internet users in China is estimated around 618 million and this doesn't include the number of servers running in the mainland China. An attack like this can point all their requests to any single IP in just a few minutes. This will dwarf any botnet to date - Bredolab was estimated at 30 million bots
I have a few servers in China and witnessed the problem first hand. While the initial claim was a DNS poisoning of the root and the gTLD servers, it affected only mainland China - no similar issues were found in Hong Kong for example. Our DNS cache logs showed bogus responses from DNS servers all over the world including the bbc.co.uk NS servers - most likely they were changed in transit by the China's firewall.
My best quess is they botched an update to the Great Firewall of China and instead of banning that IP just set a DNS redirect pointing to it. More information on http://websitepulse.com/blog/china_dns_issues

Re: I do understand.
Well they were selling the developer preview phones in two flavors. I got myself a Peak (149 EUR)
CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 8225 1.2Ghz x2.
UMTS 2100/1900/850 (3G HSPA).
GSM 850/900/1800/1900 (2G EDGE).
Screen 4.3" qHD IPS Multitouch.
Camera 8 MP (back) + 2 MP (front).
4 GB (ROM) and 512 MB (RAM).
Battery 1800 mAh.
I don't think they deliberately dumbed it down - I rather think it is trying to make them as cheap as possible to attract more developers
Re: dumb question
I have a Peak - and currently there is only one eReader app (epubreader) which is quite rough but it works. You just copy your books to the sdcard - no cloud sync whatsoever. You might need an Internet connection the first time you open the app because some additional libraries are downloaded from the net.
I've been using a stock Nexus One for years and most of my apps are on SD, no rooting was required just 2 shell commands. OK you need the Android SDK to do that, but it was much easier than setting the ringtone on my wives iPhone 4
Re: Apple losers
They are sold in China only, but being Windows CE 6.0 I wouldn't consider buying on those anyway
I tried Aldico, but FBReader is my thing. It has loads of configurable options and while the Aldico bookshelf looks nice I would rather browse my books by title, author etc.
