Huawei: Mobile For Everyone

Very Fast, But Not In Spain

The Chinese giant Huawei begins to wake up and if we talk about smartphones aspires to become a referent. They started 25 years ago with telephone networks, but 10 were switched to mobile phones and now they dedicate 44% of their workforce to R & D.If at the beginning they were dedicated to the low range, now pretend to look brand and be someone in the world based oncovering all possible ranges with their many models.

At CES in Las Vegas presented theAscend D2(Full HD 5-inch screen, 13 megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM), the terminal luxury, and the Mobile World Congress 2013 its star is theAscend P2(screen 4.7 inches, 13 megapixel camera and 1 GB of RAM).They sell it as the fastest smartphone in the world, but only if you surf on 4G networks that in Spain at the moment do not exist.

“I can buy a Ferrari and the roads are not ready to run with it.It’s not Ferrari’s fault, it’s the roads. “With this analogy explains Javier de la Asunción, one of Huawei’s marketing managers. The day we have 4G in Spain, the Ascend P2 will be the fastest smartphone. Until then, it is a high-end LTE mobile.

However, despite the untimely forecasts of the Ministry of Industry, Javier de la Asunción believes that we will see 4G in Spain before the next Mobile World Congress.He also insists on changing the image of Huawei: “We fled the stigma of cheap Chinese gear.” 

A Comprehensive Repertoire

From the most basic and economical range (the Y210), Huawei is climbing in quality and price to its most expensive models, includingAscend Mate, a phablet (half phone, half tablet) of 6.1 Inches.   

Gigantic smartphones that will not fit into a pocket until someone makes the biggest pockets.”But we do not force anyone,” says Javier de la Asunción, “we have all kinds of sizes and prices so that each consumer chooses the one he wants.I do not think people will end up concentrating everything on the same device, but we will have several devices that will connect to the same cloud, to a single source of content. “

And is thatHuawei is not limited to smartphones and phablets. They also havetablets like the Media Pad, 10.1 inches and with a keyboard that can be removed, or a whole repertoire of connectivity accessories, including different types of routers and gadgets useful as a USB stick that generates a WiFi network for domestic use.
