Huawei are one of the biggest telecommunications equipment companies in the world. They are huge in China although their kit is used the world over. Chances are if you are a BT Broadband customer you are using modems build by them. Huawei make no bones about their desire to become one of the biggest smartphone manufacturers in the world, and a couple of years ago they started their assault on the European market.

GigaOm has been doing some research into the murky area of Android tablet sales and thinks the perception of iPad dominance is misguided. Google do not come clean with many tablets stats for some reason. Oh, sorry. Yes! Because Android tablet sales have been shocking. But that’s might change if Kevin Tofel’s article is on the right track. We know that Android tablet activations only include devices that use Google accounts for the device and apps.

Apple has lost its injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in an Australian federal court. As of Friday afternoon, the Tab can be freely sold and advertised. This represents a significant step in the ongoing battle between the two companies which has been waging for several months. The initial ban granted in October stifled demand for the Samsung device which was viewed as the primary competitor to the Apple iPad 2. But the news is good for the Korean company ahead of Christmas and they Read more [...]
