Huawei has announced it is dropping all plans to make future Windows Phone smartphones. The reason is quite simple - it didn't make any money from manufacturing Windows Phone devices.
Huawei's spokesman went even further, stating that nobody has made any money from the Microsoft's OS. We guess it is referring to Microsoft's newest partners (Blu, Lava, Micromax, Prestigio, Yezz, among others), which opted for the free-of-license Windows Phone recently.
Huawei is a fast growing manufacturer with growing market share and its decision should be a blow to Microsoft's plans or aggressive Windows Phone expansion. Microsoft is trying to expand the WP market reach using massive price drops for the holiday deals and while this might be working, it seems its partners aren't doing as well as they would have hope for.
Microsoft will be announcing a unified Windows 10 for all devices (phones, slates, PCs) next year. The Desktop version is already available for download, while the mobile should be detailed early next year. Hopefully this provides the Microsoft's OS the necessary boost it needed for so long.
Windows phones is dead. I worked there. I used it. There is no need to buy it after my free one breaks. Going iOS all the way for the eco systems. Windows has little to no apps now.
Well said mate..
It doesn't matter if they leave, we still have the LUMIA Brand. Goodbye Huawai.
