Huawei shuns Windows plans, plays along with Android instead
Huawei, the Chinese phone maker who said something back in August about Samsung’s Tizen OS not worth betting a penny on, has dropped another bomb.
Now, the company says it will no longer do business with Microsoft, per Windows Phone smartphones. The lay off of the deal seems to be caused by lack of sales on Huawei WIndows Phones like the Huawei Ascend W2. who we didn’t hear much about after it was launched.
“For us we think Android is the best choice,” Huawei executive Shao Yang said. “The biggest problem is that Windows is not quite easy to develop independently… a lot of things are defined by Windows [and] they leave a very small space for vendors to develop,” he continued citing the lack of customization available on WPOS in contrast to Android’s open source ecosystem.
Speaking on Tizen OS, “there are no current plans to work on the Tizen platform,” Yang commented. “We are putting any releases of new Windows phones on hold.”
