Huawei will get the next Nexus deal
Google finally turns to Chinese vendor
Google is going to rope in a new supplier for its next Nexus. According Kevin Yang, director of China research at iSuppli, Google is set to tap Huawei to make its next Nexus.
It will be the first time Google has turned to a Chinese phone vendor for Nexus duties, but it will serve the search engine well for getting its foot in the door in the lucrative Chinese market. China is trying its best to shut out foreign tech companies and this is a little harder if Google is partnered with one of the big Chinese companies.
