The Chinese Based telecommunication company Huawei drops joint operating system. There were plans to create a phone that supported the Microsoft Windows system and the Android operating system on the one device.
The company has announced that they have dropped this idea and are continuing to work with these operating systems separately. Most of the phones they make support the Android operating system.
These two different systems allow a completely different experience for the user; it is going to be a personal preference as to the choice you make. Often the Microsoft Windows phones were higher priced than the Android systems but they, too, have reduced in price and this is fantastic news for the consumers; it gives better options. If you are used to the operating systems on a computer the Windows application on your phone is a smooth transition, but the Android system has improved in recent years and the quality of this operating system is far reaching.
Huawei has been slow gaining a foothold in the market, competing with some of the top name brands, but with great devices often at a fraction of the cost of some of their competitors, they are making great headway in the mobile telecommunication.
There has been no reason given from the company for the sudden change in the move, but speculation suggests this could be due to pressure from the companies involved wanting to keep the operating systems separate.
The Huawei Company was founded in 1987 and in 2010, their profit was CNY 23.8 billion (US$ 3.7 billion). Their mobile phones and their smart phones are competing with some of the top names in mobile phone designs; they are just as powerful and easily used and often come in under-priced of the competitors.
