Despite significant challenges in getting into the US market, Huawei has become the second largest phone manufacture, measured in phone shipments, in the latest report from IDC. The shipping of 54.2 million devices in the second quarter of 2018 means that the Chinese manufacture has moved well past Apple, who was number two behind Samsung until this report. Apple shipped 41.3 million devices in the same quarter.
Overall, Samsung remains the number one phone manufacture in the world, capturing some 20.9% of the global market with 71.5 million units shipping in Q2 of this year. Huawei has approximately 15.8% of the market share.

When the Huawei Matebook X was introduced earlier this year, it caught a lot of eyes. The ultra-slim design and nearly bezel-less display were the immediate wow factors but so too was the overall construction of the Windows 10 laptop. The question, of course, was if the form factor was overshadowed by a lack of performance. In this case, the answer is no.
The Matebook X is a powerful laptop with few compromises. Aimed at taking full advantage of Windows 10, it is designed to be a great laptop for those on the road as well as those in their home or work offices. Speed and battery life are exceptional, making it easily through most of the day before you have to start finding a power outlet to recharge.
Recently Huawei Devices USA sent me a Matebook X to review and having used it for the last couple of weeks, it is an impressive ultra-compact laptop. The display is stunning and the overall performance is great. It should be one on your short list to consider.

The Android Enterprise Recommended program has been expanded and now includes Android tablets for the first time. The new Huawei MediaPad M5 tablets, which were announced as being available in the US yesterday, are now a part of the program.
For those that don’d recall, the Android Enterprise Recommended program certifies devices that meet criteria for manageability, support, productivity, security, and reliability. The idea behind the program is to eliminate the guesswork on which devices are up to the task of being ready to handle the wear-and-tear of being an enterprise phone but also manageable from an enterprise IT perspective.
