Looks like I might be almost right
For a good while now, I have forecast that Apple/Samsung spat will look like two kids having a playground pissing contest when Huawei gets going properly.
The only part of that prediction I want to change is that it will happen sooner.
Huawei has two hurdles to get over: technical ability to generate product - which they seem to have licked and building a brand that is strong enough to overcome barriers such as xenophobia.
It was only 50 years ago that Japan was that place that made crap toys that broke the day after Christmas. Now they are the country most people associate with quality and premium electronic brands.
Twenty years ago Korea was viewed as some squalid country that couldn't make anything. Just ten years ago nobody would have suspected that a Korean brand would out-cool Apple.
Why should it be any different for China? The only difference is speed. The Chinese will do it faster.
