Huawei to get into the notebook business

William Xu, HuaweiWhile some vendors are getting out of the declining PC notebook business, it appears that Chinese giant Huawei will introduce notebooks next year.

Huawei is already in the X86 server business and this year launched smartphones, which according to analysts, sold really quite well.

Digitimes reports that Huawei will use a Chinese original design manufacturer called BYD, and that company will make so called 2-in-1 Windows 10 notebooks. Xiaomi, a smartphone competitor is using Taiwanese ODM Inventec to make notebooks for it.

Huawei already has a pretty developed channel worldwide, and the move is likely to dent business by Lenovo, HP, Dell, Acer and Asustek.

The move could also lead to lower prices for PC notebooks, as the market develops.
