Huawei chucks a round $1bn at developers

It's all about customer biz needs, apparently

Huawei plans to pump $1bn into support for developers over the next five years.

It comes after IBM inked a deal with Chinese data centre provider 21Vianet Group last week, touting Big Blue's cloud computing platform Bluemix at developers working in the People's Republic.

Huawei products director Ryan Ding said, according to Reuters:

"The aim is to help developers create innovative services and rapidly respond to customers' business needs."

The Register sought comment from Huawei. We were hoping to find out more about the company's strategy behind this investment.

But we were told nobody was manning the UK flack desk today. El Reg was promised a follow-up, but we're still waiting ... nothing to do with a certain someone's imminent state visit, surely? ®
