Huawei plans to re­lease first PC

The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

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.
