Huawei plans to release first PC
Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is likely to release its first personal computer next month, as part of the tech firm's plan to catch up with Apple Inc in revenue.
What will be interesting would be to see if the world's biggest telecom equipment maker is able to translate its success story in smartphones market to the PC sector, where demand is languishing in major markets.
Huawei is working with chipmaker Intel Corp on a PC that is scheduled to be unveiled in February, Shanghai-based news site yicai.com said on Monday. The report did not disclose what kind of device the Shenzhen, Guangdongbased vendor will launch.
Huawei sources said on condition of anonymity that the company may release at least one tablet device at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, next month.
The sources said the matter is confidential and there "might" be an announcement regarding the PC business during the event, but nothing has been decided yet.
