Huawei's AT&T deal reportedly just imploded

Huawei's AT&T deal reportedly just imploded

An AT&T spokesman declined to comment, noting that the company hasn't commented on this rumor for the past few months.

Chinese smartphone vendor Huawei appears to have encountered a major stumbling block in its plans to expand its us smartphone business, with the Wall Street Journal reporting that AT&T has discontinued plans to sell Huawei phones.

Congress president to address NRIs shortly
Rahul Gandhi said Modi government has failed to provide jobs which has resulted in tremendous anger amongst the youth. Agriculture GVA growth 1.7% low, fiscal deficit 8 year high, stalled projects also high.

Huawei was expected to announce its agreement with AT&T this Tuesday at CES in Las Vegas, which would have been its first partnership with a major United States mobile provider, according to The Wall Street Journal.

"We will sell our flagship phone, our product, in the USA market through carriers next year", Richard Yu, the president of Huawei Technologies' consumer business, said in a December interview, which was confirmed at the time by a Huawei spokesperson. It isn't clear as to why the deal was called off, and apparently it was more to do with AT&T's decision to back away rather than Huawei's.

Fire breaks out at Mumbai Sessions Court
The studio is located at Kajurmarg in Mumbai where two TV serials were being shot- Bepanaah and Haasil- at that time. News agency Press Trust of India quoted officials saying that there were no causalities or injuries reported so far.

The Wall Street Journal's sources don't cite a reason for the collapse in the deal, and neither firm has provided confirmation or an explanation on the matter.

That placed Huawei's smartphones at a considerable disadvantage compared to Apple, Samsung and other phone makers whose products are readily available from mobile carriers' stores. It's said that Huawei was planning to announce the news Tuesday, aka tomorrow, but now the company's deal with AT&T is no more.

Huawei will still announce U.S. availability of its phones, but likely through other channels like online or retail.
