Blackberry Acquisition? Huawei Pays No Interest
Following Microsoft announced the acquisition of Nokia mobile phone business, the news that Blackberry might be sold began to frequently hit the newspapers, and one of the potential acquirers is Huawei, a Chinese multinational networking and telecommunications equipment and services company.
However, Huawei’s senior vice president Chen Lifang recently responded to the news in an interview. She said that Huawei had not considered buying any mobile phone manufacturer yet! As to her attitude, it seems that they want to rely on their own. Chen Lifang said,” we have achieved a lot in the field of mobile phone manufacturing. ”
Indeed, in recent years, Huawei has made great progress in the smart phone business, and now it has grown into the world’s third largest smart phone manufacturer by sales volume, just behind Samsung and Apple’s.
Also, Huawei is a big fan of the Android OS, so the acquisition of the BlackBerry is clearly not in line with Huawei’s future development strategy.
