Huawei Mulling Its Own Smartphone OS
Huawei CEO Wan Biao said that the company may develop its own smartphone platform as a back-up plan in case its relationships with Google and Microsoft sour. "We're devoting resources into coming up with a phone operating system based on our current platform in case other companies won't let us use their system one day," said Biao in an interview with Reuters. "Whatever consumers like, we'll develop." Biao did say, however, that its immediate plans call for more Android and more Windows Phone devices. In particular, Huawei plans to target high-end smartphones, which are more profitable.
