Huawei and China’s Telecoms Industry with David Wolf

Updated to include link for download.  Downloading now works.

Recorded on May 21, 2011

For this edition of Artman Talks, we’re speaking with David Wolf about his new book Making the Connection: The Peaceful Rise of China’s Telecommunications Giants.

In our discussion, we focus on the importance of China’s telecom history, the role of client-centered innovation, as well as Huawei and their current image problem.

We also get to hear David go beyond the book to look at the future of Huawei’s development and some of the things they (and other Chinese telecoms manufacturers) can do to continue their aggressive international expansion.

Most surprising fact for me:  For both Huawei and ZTE, due to local preconceptions of poor domestic quality, only a minority of their business comes from China.

Xiaomi vs WebOS with Kane Gao

Okay, this took waaay too long to get up.  Actually, I’ve had it edited for the last week or so, but just couldn’t get around to uploading and posting it.

So, if you’ve been wondering where Artman Talks went, well, nowhere.  This is the problem when your passion has to take a backseat to that which enables your ability to provide for your family (ie a job that pays money.)

Anyway here it is.

If you use Twitter and follow China tech, more than likely you’ve seen Kane’s tweets or spoken with him.  Other than a few notable exceptions, he’s probably the most prolific tech-related tweeter and his job has nothing to do with tech!  He should be a blogger, no?

In this eighteenth installment of Artman Talks, I interrogate Kane about why he is using a dead OS, what he thinks of WP7, and the coming fight between Xiaomi and Meizu, both phones and Android forks made in China, for China.
