The creation of smart phones that will utilize the Windows platform is something Huawei intends to carry on doing despite all odds. Although there have been worrying news regarding the purchase by Microsoft of Nokia’s hardware unit for a cool $7.2 billion, Huawei is set in its ways to remain committed to Microsoft.
In the capacity of a vital sidekick of Bill Gates’ brainchild, Huawei will remain constant in its efforts to provide devices for the software giant. Many experts predict that this latest deal will derail the process for Huawei. But the Chinese company’s execs remain adamant and confident in their ability to persevere in catering to Microsoft.
Microsoft’s economic web of interdependence will go on. It cannot be broken or abandoned by the mere addition of a new player. The majority of Huawei’s devices are facilitated by Android. However, in the beginning of 2013 it launched the Huawei Ascend W1, which is a Windows-compatible device.
Meanwhile, there have been reports of Microsoft’s plans to make its own hardware. But that won’t make an iota of difference to Huawei. The two are strategic allies and as close as two peas in a pod. The question of a parting of ways simply does not arise. But the future remains an unpredictable entity so any prognostication is too early for now.
