The rapid growth of Chinese major information appliances maker's to the global enterprises is often explained as "compression of time" effect by enjoyment of latecomer advantages. On the other hand, as to core technologies, there are NEW TYPE of latecomer disadvantages coming from (1) complexity and acceleration of technology developments, (2) higher licensing fee, and (3) technology protection by strict IP (intellectual property) or "Black Boxes" which hide proprietary/ unique/specific technologies not to be copied. This paper analyzes how have the three major Chinese information appliances makers (Haier, Changhong and TCL) overcome the above mentioned NEW TYPE of latecomer disadvantages. Then common factors will be extracted to clarify the innovation process to become the global enterprises.
