Huawei: Nobody Is Making Any Money With Windows Phone

plans on hold earlier this year. That, after commenting that Microsoft’s platform is not open enough. However, the company made it no secret that it lost out on the venture, and its bitterness was evident in the declaration that Windows Phone does not factor into its immediate mobile strategy. A company executive by the name of Kelly had this to say last month:

“We didn’t make any money in Windows Phone. Nobody made any money in Windows Phone.”
These remarks came when journalists were invited to Huawei’s research and development labs, and it is hard to deny what the Chinese company is claiming here. Even though there have been companies like Nokia and Qualcomm that benefited from the platform, others can’t say the same. Things were slow to pick up, and if the opposite was true, we’d surely have seen some more hustle from companies like Samsung and HTC on the Windows Phone front. Microsoft is currently the only major vendor pushing the platform forward. That’s not to say that the fortunes will not change. Forecasts are not always the most accurate of things to go by, but market research firms are positive that Windows Phone has turned a corner, and is set for notable growth in the near future. But will companies like HTC, Samsung and Huawei, even LG, mark their return to the platform? That be the million dollar question.]]>
