Huawei bravely raises 2011 sales goal; to ship 20 million smartphones by the year’s end
That is about 5 to 8 million Huawei smartphones more than what was expected to roll out of the company’s assembly lines initially and over six times as much it managed to sell in 2010. Could Huawei be planning to expand its market presence and flood the U.S. with affordable Android and Windows Phone handsets of all shapes and sizes? Well, the main reason for the manufacturer’s positive expectations is that its devices are already selling better than anticipated in its homeland, but we wouldn’t mind if more smartphones like the Huawei M886 Glory make it across the Pacific.
Nevertheless, Huawei will be facing some pretty strong competition if it is to start marketing its smartphones more aggressively in the U.S. Let’s hope that they will do a better job advertising them this time.
