Welcome to the latest report of Huawei technology, now even though things are heating Huawei says we’re going to still open a phone store in the UK. They’re still expanding we covered the story recently about Huawei being cast out of the UK being shunned even more than that not just you can’t continue to supply our 5g networks but we’re going to force everyone to rip out the equipment that’s already there we’re going to force all the Telco’s that they have until 2027 to get rid of this stuff we feel it’s a threat.
Here’s the variety of reasons why we feel like it has to go and then Huawei comes out a few days later and says yeah we’re going to open three phone store in the UK now to be clear that initial report didn’t have much to say about the consumer devices that Huawei makes and the ability for the general public to go buy those things and use them on whichever network they want so this wouldn’t necessarily be impacted by that but it does seem kind of odd that a couple of days after you get some news like that.
Network of Huawei phone store
You talk about spending a boatload of cash to open a phone store Huawei has unveiled plans to open three experienced stores in the UK just days after the government confirmed the company would be banned from participating in the rollout of 5g networks. The Chinese mobile phone giant already has its own branded stores in Madrid and Paris but nothing in Britain it was the first one that was going to open in October.
so they’re doubling down they’re saying we’re going to stay here for a while they’re saying you know what we’re going to keep trying we’re not going to lay this one down just yet and that’s kind of been their status up until this point things continue to stack up against them and they still they continue to do what they can amid the onslaught that appears to be heading their direction from all directions. Heading from all directions but they say we’re going to open these experience phone store but I have to be honest with you will if I’m a citizen in the UK and I’m following the news I don’t know how comfy I am splurging on that flagship p40 pro plus right now to be clear I’m not saying it’s not going to be served but you have the google piece and now you have the 5g piece and
So the experience phone store there and you know I go take a walk around but then I’m wondering to myself do I want to put this money down am I confident that’s a good move. so it’s increasingly difficult but Huawei thinks they’re going to a couple of people they don’t mind spending a couple of bucks to put their brand in some high profile locations and that’s often how some of these flagship phone stores operate to be a clear part of it is selling you stuff but part of it is you get a free billboard in a prime location that will cost you some dollars on its own.
