Huawei May Create Its Own Smartphone OS

Shenzhen-based Huawei might not be as big of a name as Apple or Samsung here in the states, but the 25-year-old company has taken the number-two position globally in communication networks. Last year, Huawei alone brought in close to three quarters of the industry's total revenue. Since China is expected to become the world's largest smartphone market, the company is in an excellent position to take on tech giants Apple and Samsung in the smartphone arena.

With plans for global branding of its Android-based product line and an additional Windows 8 Phone line, Huawei hopes to establish itself here in the states. Taking notice of Samsung's recent loss against Apple, Huawei has prepared itself for the worst. Knowing it may one day run into problems with its competitors, the company told Reuters it has even been developing its very own operating system. Though it's unlikely we'll ever see Huawei's mobile OS, we can definitely expect to soon see this company become a fierce competitor in the U.S. market.

    This should be a fantastic product judging from the high quality that is ubiquitous in China!

    Honestly, if they wanted to, why couldn't they make a kick butt, inexpensive, smartphone?

    How weird. Nokia is ditching its own superior OS for a crippled walled garden POS while every other chinese dips-hit is 'making its own OS'.

    We are doomed, really we are!

    The Chinese government owns Huawei. Expect backdoors to be included in the new closed OS.

    That 'dip-shit' has more employees than Nokia or Apple. This is not some hole in the wall outfit!
    Still, I'd not want a phone with an OS from China. Don't trust them :-)

    Because we live in capitalism and companies are in the game to profit from.
    If they want to milk old tech to get the job, they will do it for as long as its viable.
