Change the name...
Being called "who are we?" won't sell...
Huawei’s enterprise biz outside of China is crawling along, hampered in Europe by a slower-than-forecast recruitment of channel partners and in the US by government paranoia concerns over espionage. The networking, server and storage kit division accounts for nine per cent of Huawei’s overall revenues of £23bn in 2013, and …
Agreed, if they want to succeed then the first step should be changing their name. It's just one of those words that just doesn't cut the mustard.
There is no appeal, sexyness or serious-sounding-ness behind that name.
Does anyone know what Huawei means, can someone translate it or is it just a name.
Their lower end phones are bloody awful, particularly the Ascend ones.
I would tend to disagree with this to an extent in that my Ascend G330 is well into its second year of use and is still doing pretty well for itself.
Mind you, that tendency is tempered by the fact that I feel that some of the phones that are being brought up as replacements are actually inferior to it, hence the reason why I haven't changed it yet. Things like "we make it thinner but you can't remove the battery" put me off, for example.
Got to agree. Huawei just doesn't have enough technical marketing or product management occurring. They also have zero community management and near-zero engagement with bloggers, media and other thought leaders.
They need both to have good documentation and marketing in English and a seed program that gets units into the hands of well known reviewers so that those people can start putting the gear to the test and saying "yeah, this is good enough for tier 1".
They'll get there, eventually.
