Best Buy to Stop Selling Huawei Phones After Inventory Depletes

Huawei has suffered yet another blow in their efforts to break into the US smartphone market.  Retailer Best Buy is reportedly not replenishing their current inventory of devices such as the Mate 10 Pro and will cease selling them once inventory is gone.

The news adds to what has already been a very rough start to 2018 for the Chinese manufacture in the United States.  In January both AT&T and Verizon pulled out of carrier deals with the company after being pressured by the United States government to do so.  This forced Huawei to look to retail channels like Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg and B&H Photo.  So far, only Best Buy has indicated they will not be selling the device any longer.

Best Buy Now Selling The Nexus 6P 64GB for $499

The big box retailer Best Buy is now another option for those of you who are looking to pick up the new Nexus 6P.  This weekend the US retailer started selling the aluminium finished 6P with 64GB of onboard storage for $499.  That is the same price as the Google Store but you can pick it up locally at many of the brick-and-mortar stores and of course order it online for delivery to your home, office or your local Best Buy.

To this point here in the US you have pretty much had to go to the Google Store to get the Nexus 6P although you have been able to find them sporadically on eBay or Amazon.  The rumor was that Best Buy would be picking up the 6P at some point but it was unclear when it would be and, more importantly, if it would be during the holiday season.  It made it – barely – which certainly is a good sign as Google works to get the phone out to other outlets.
