  • Huawei wireless deal with South Korea prompts US concerns

    A reported deal between Chinese firm Huawei and South Korea to develop the country's broadband network, has prompted concerns in the US.

    Two US senators have written to the Obama administration saying any such deal raised "potential security concerns" for the US.

    There have been concerns in Washington over Huawei's association with the Chinese government and military.

    But the Chinese firm has repeatedly denied those allegations.

    The worries over its association with the Chinese authorities have been driven, in part, by the fact that the company's founder, Ren Zhengfei, was a former member of the People's Liberation Army.

    Huawei profit jumps on smartphones, U.S. asks Hua-who?

    (Reuters) - China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, known more for its telecom networking prowess than its razor-thin smartphones, is starting to see success in its consumer electronics business, though the key U.S. market remains elusive.

    Huawei became the world's third-biggest smartphone manufacturer last year, mainly due to a fast-growing Chinese market. That is helping cushion the impact of a global slowdown in network equipment spending, which caused the company to miss its revenue growth target last year.

    Consumer devices will also help Huawei buy some time before 4G network upgrades in China lead to more orders for telecom equipment.

    Huawei's smartphone ventures, like its domestic rivals ZTE Corp and Lenovo Group Ltd, have so far focused on selling low- and mid-priced handsets in emerging markets.

        Two years after U.S. legislators branded it a national security threat, China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is planning a campaign to win over U.S. consumers, rolling out new mobile phones and wearable devices backed by a marketing effort.

        China's second-largest smartphone maker, already with more than $40 billion in annual revenue from a wide range of telecom gear and products, is preparing to introduce Americans to several of its smartphones and wearable devices this year, including its youth-oriented "Honor" phone, Huawei officials told Reuters.

          Huawei stakes claim in 'Internet of Things' market with new operating system

          China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL], the world's biggest telecommunications equipment maker, on Wednesday became the latest tech giant to present its own take on the 'Internet of Things' (IoT), centered on an operating system designed to allow household and business appliances to communicate with each other online.

          At an event in Beijing, Huawei executives showcased its "Agile IoT" architecture, including an operating system called LiteOS to control basic devices. This marks the firm's most significant push into a sector that has lured heavyweights from Google Inc to Intel Corp and IBM into pushing their own standards and communication protocols.
