Huawei announces their Ascend Mate 2, a followup that actually impresses

A few years ago, Huawei decided they’d go their own way. In their move from a device maker for the stars to a device maker for the people, Huawei did what they’d always done — and we liked — but put their name on it. The Ascend Mate, the phone many consider the first “phablet”, helped to raise awareness to the brand, and ruffled a few feathers in the process. With the Ascend Mate 2, Huawei is at it again, and bringing the same energy and focus that made our heads turn the first time.

Huawei CEO to French media: “We have decided to exit the US market”

Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei has some words for the US government and US tech companies. In light of a push in recent years by some officials and tech execs to shun Huawei and ZTE based on their alleged collusion with the Chinese government to spy on the US, Zhengfei said Huawei is "exiting the US market."

IDC shows all phone shipments rise but Nokia

It would appear that we've got a bit of a rarity going on this quarter for phone and smartphone shipments across the world according to the IDC. This device tracker seeks out shipment numbers, you should keep in mind, not smartphone and non-smartphone sales, so you're not seeing the end result, just the part of the equation that's out before the devices are sold to end consumers. The rarity we're seeing this quarter is the drop in only one device vendor out of the whole tracked bunch - that's Nokia - though it would appear that this brand does remain in close contention with the rest of the top brands worldwide for smartphone and non-smartphones (the one total category) combined.

Huawei ban upheld in Australia following government review

Huawei ban upheld in Australia following government review

Huawei, alongside with ZTE, has been the subject of concerns and scrutiny by the United States government and others, with fears revolving around possible spying that could be taking place on behalf of the Chinese government. The maker has previously been banned from use on Australia's National Broadband Network, something that was recently reviewed with the anticipation that the block would be ended. Such was not the case, however.
