China Mobile Awards Bulk of its $3.2 Billion 4G Contracts to Huawei, ZTE

The major bulk of the contractual winnings went to ZTE and Huawei. And the Western smart phone manufacturers were in a state of chagrin at the rebuttal. Their advances had not paid off in the long run. China Mobile was the coy mistress and it chose its wooers to be two Chinese giants. They would be the ones to take its systems to the next level of 4G technology. Telco equipment creators were also looking forward to signing a contract with the Chinese company. But local talent was preferred over Occidental influence. Over half of the contractual pie went to homegrown firms. Only one-third of the whole deal was awarded to Western interests. 

The hopes of Ericsson and Huawei had been pinned on China Mobile’s 4G sector in China. They wanted to see it expand and flourish. To reach a worldwide market was the original goal. China Mobile had a clientele that numbered over 700 million. The amount of subscribers that this company catered to was the largest chunk by population on a global level. Huawei and ZTE have won 25% of the contract respectively which speaks volumes about their reputation. Meanwhile, Alcatel-Lucent, Nokia Siemens Networks and Ericsson got merely a slice of 10% each from the contractual cake. China Mobile plans on constructing over 200,000 base stations before 2013 expires.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
