Huawei's AT&T USA smartphone deal collapses

Chinese companies making big statements at electronics show

It also can not be ruled out that AT&T may have been under pressure from Apple and Samsung to abort the Huawei deal as both companies carry some weight for being the two largest players in the global market.

One month before the deal was to be unveiled this week, U.S. lawmakers sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission asking it to review Huawei's smartphone business, claiming Huawei, which also makes network equipment, "poses a security threat to the United States and to our systems". That will join the similarly self-effacing "best phone you've never heard of" slogan the company has started rolling out in the ramp-up to Mate 10 Pro availability. But the plan was dismissed over political pressure from USA lawmakers who saw Huawei as a security threat.

As for why AT&T dropped out of the deal, the reasons were reported to be somewhat controversial.

OnePlus is one of the most popular smartphone makers among hardcore Android fans. The deal died after members of both the US Senate and House intelligence committees wrote to the FCC.

Well, Cambodia might not have its own Wonder Woman but we certainly have super models like Moni Roth, Piya Vega, Sopha Linda, and Chan Kongka to promote Huawei's Mate 10 Pro and they turned up in full force at Huawei's New Year party at Aeon Mall.

As part of their continued support, Fe will find itself at home with Nintendo's solid history of platforming titles. There are free demos available on the Nintendo eShop for Kirby Battle Royale and Dragon Quest Builders .

"The US market is a unique challenge for Huawei, and although Huawei Mate 10 Pro will not be sold by US operators, we remain committed to this market now and in the future", says the official statement of Huawei. More big loss is consumers. Yet its blocking of deals involving Chinese companies in sectors where it has traditionally had an advantage shows its criticisms have more validity if directed at the U.S. market.

Huawei is the fourth-biggest smartphone maker globally because of its massive popularity in Asia, according to IDC.

Huawei "worries about getting the problem fixed first and then worries about getting paid", Union Wireless' customer relations officer Brian Woody told the Journal. It might. An apt example that a Chinese company can secure partnerships with USA carriers is ZTE. At the time, Huawei hit out at global "protectionism". Media reports cited carrier security concerns regarding Huawei's ties to the Chinese government.

The bill introduced this week would prohibit the federal government "from using or contracting with an entity that uses" telecommunications equipment or services from by Huawei or ZTE, or any of their subsidiaries.
