Huawei: Experiments for Windows Phone does not benefit the company
Huawei, one of the leading smartphone manufacturers, has revised its plans for the device running Windows Phone. The Chinese company will release only one model with WP from the middle class up to the end of the year, and in the future may suspend the business with such devices.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, senior Manager, Huawei recognized that the use of Windows Phone has brought the company success. Within two years, the Chinese giant is losing money in this business, so as to convince the customers that its devices have advantages over Nokia Lumia.
For this reason, Huawei is planning to cease production of new smartphones with WP and focus on Android devices. «We are concerned that Android is the only option, but we have no choice. In addition, we have a very good partnership with Google,» said Richard Yu, head of consumer products.
According to him, Android is the only platform that Huawei can make a profit. The company has no plans to experiment with smartphones running other platforms (except Android and Windows Phone) or to develop its own operating system, due to the difficulties in building an ecosystem around it.
