The June issue of That's Shanghai is out now – paper-and-ink-form citywide, digital pdf-form right here or in your browser here.

This month we’ve looked at cellphones, and how they are redefining the way people (us included) buy, behave and get social in the PRC. From social commerce to a history of China mobiles, turn to page 58 and get some fascinating (and worrying?) info on the smartphone era. Put your mobile down first though.

In the City Section, That’s Beijing Deputy Editor Oscar Holland has unveiled the disturbing world of stem cells in China (p14), while our very own Erik Crouch went to Shanghai’s first ever Comic Convention to report about the, ehm, ‘cool’ peeps attending it (p19). 

Arts Editor Andrew Chin and Events Editor Zoey Zha have covered literally every single art, music and theater event you should be checking out this month. Anyone interested in a blockbusterized exhibit about Van Gogh or a theater show that’s bee dubbed the ‘Chinese Godfather’ should jump to p44. Now.

We’ve also got an awesome feature about Shanghai's F&B female entrepreneurs in our Eat & Drink section, courtesy of our food queen Betty Richardson. Check p70 for that – badass ladies, we tell you.

See? We’ve given you plenty of reasons to leave your phone aside. Unless you want to read the digital version of this issue, of course…And check the billions competitions we’ve got going on WeChat, while you’re at it. Happy reading.

Marianna Cerini, Editor in Chief
