Huawei exec: Windows Phone isnt open enough and costs too much


Recommended Posts

Asked about Huawei's Windows Phone plans, an executive responded instead by listing the company's issues with the platform, including OS licensing costs, limited customization and "the ecosystem".

From Neowin:

Huawei was one of the four launch partners - alongside Samsung, HTC and Nokia - for the rebooted Windows Phone 8 which débuted in 2012. But as Nokia has come to dominate the platform, with over 90% share of WP sales, Huawei remains an infinitesimal fish in Windows Phones tiny pond.

Having released just two lower-end Windows Phones in the last eighteen months, Huaweis commitment to the platform hasnt exactly been wholehearted and that seems unlikely to change, for now. Last month, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, wpxbox.com spoke with Shao Yang, chief marketing officer at Huawei Device, in an interview that has only been published in the last few days.
