AITO Auto clarifies: "Huawei will fully take over the sales system of Wenjie" is false news

It was reported yesterday that all sales staff at Wenjie will join Huawei's wholly-owned subsidiary "Shenzhen Huitong Business Co., Ltd." and become Huawei's non-staff employees. The visa changes will be completed next year.

It is estimated that after this visa replacement is completed, Huawei will further control Wenjie's sales and service system and control sales strategies and work processes. The rent for Huawei's offline stores is still paid by dealers, and the labor costs of sales staff are borne by Huawei.

In this regard, AITO Auto said that Wenjie Auto has been loved and recognized by consumers since its launch. In order to provide consumers with a better sales and service experience, Huawei will further increase the construction of directly operated stores.

The media report that "Huawei will fully take over the sales system of Wenjie" is false news.

Google's parent company's third-quarter revenue grew 11%, exceeding expectations, but cloud business growth slowed

Google parent company Alphabet released its third-quarter earnings on Tuesday. The report shows that Alphabet achieved revenue of US$76.7 billion in the third quarter, a year-on-year increase of 11%, which was almost the same as analysts’ expectations of US$76 billion.

The company's net profit reached US$19.689 billion, a year-on-year increase of 42%, exceeding Wall Street's expectations of US$18.5 billion.

Sales at Google Cloud, the company's division that provides software and technology services to other businesses, rose 22% to $8.4 billion in the quarter. However, analysts had expected the amount to be $8.6 billion.

Google has invested in its cloud unit to make it the preferred platform for artificial intelligence software, but this quarter's results disappointed investors, and Alphabet's shares fell more than 6% after the bell.

Investment.com analyst Jesse Cohen said Google Cloud risks falling further behind Microsoft's Azure and Amazon Web Services.

Microsoft CEO admits abandoning Windows Phone was a mistake

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella admitted in an interview with Business Insider that Microsoft's strategy in the mobile phone business has made mistakes. He said:

Exiting mobile phones was one of the hardest decisions I've made since becoming CEO.

Looking back, I think it would have been better if we could have innovated across devices such as PCs, tablets and phones.

Nadella succeeded Steve Ballmer as CEO in 2014, and soon after decided to write off $7.6 billion in assets related to Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone business.

Although Microsoft later launched Surface Duo and Surface Duo 2 phones powered by Android, the future of the Surface Duo series remains unclear due to the lack of follow-up products and continuous software updates.

Nadella is the third CEO, following Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, to admit that Microsoft made mistakes in its mobile market strategy. Bill Gates once said that his "biggest mistake ever" was losing Microsoft to Android.

However, over the past decade, Microsoft has been developing apps for iOS and Android.

The company continually updates its Phone Link app to connect iPhone and Android phones to Windows, and Microsoft works closely with Samsung to ensure its mobile Office apps come preinstalled on Samsung phones.
