Huawei Global Analyst Summit: Day 3

by Neil Mawston | 4月 25, 2013

Our Wireless Device Strategies (WDS) team has been pleased to attend Huawei's 10th Global Analyst Summit in China between Tuesday 23rd to Thursday 25th April, 2013.

Huawei has been outlining over three days its worldwide strategy for mobile devices, services, enterprises and networks in 2013.

Our summarized findings from Day One (Tuesday) and Day Two (Wednesday) can be viewed here and here.

These are three of our top findings from Day Three (Wednesday), the final instalment:

1. Huawei remains the world's number one vendor of dongles. This gives it a good relationship with global carriers and enables cross-selling of phones and tablets.

2. Huawei's smartphone unit is market-ready to support TD-LTE technology when it launches in China in H2 2013 or H1 2014;

3. Huawei is focusing mostly on Android and Microsoft platforms for smartphones / tablets this year. Other emerging operating systems are a wait-and-see option.

Overall, the Huawei Summit has been very interesting. Huawei is not yet a "Samsung killer" or "Apple killer" in the cellphone world, but it is clear they are in its sights.

See you next year.
