The Verge reported this week that the current CEO, Eric Xu Zhijun, is no fan of the smartwatch. Huawei rotates CEOs every six months, so the same site also points out that the previous acting CEO can’t have been much of a fan either. This perhaps explains why, as I… [Click for more]
I was going to start with the phrase ‘third time lucky?’ but then realised just how stupidly successful Pebble has been on both occasions it used the crowd-sourcing service to get funds to build some smartwatches.
