Huawei deal to sell phones via AT&T falls through

Visitors walk past Huawei's booth during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

"We were hoping that the AT&T partnership would pave the way for similar deals with other USA carriers", a Huawei manager told The Information. The Wall Street Journal was one of the earliest to publish reports regarding the carrier's decision to pull out of the deal. The Mate 10 Pro as well as Huawei's other phones will only be available as unlocked devices from various online stores like Amazon and from Huawei's own online store.

The deal reportedly died after members of both the US Senate and House intelligence committees wrote to the FCC.

Amid reports of ongoing talks between the two companies, AT&T has announced Huawei phones will not be part of its handset offerings.

In a statement to Reuters on Tuesday, Huawei said that the usa market presents "unique challenges" and that the Mate 10 Pro will not be sold directly by us carriers.

"On Tuesday, Huawei will introduce new products to the US market, including availability".

Huawei has always been viewed with suspicion in Washington because of alleged links to the Chinese government. However, recently there were reports suggesting that the deal has failed.

In any case, all is not lost for the company since there are other carriers that it can do business with.

For now, part of Huawei's plan is to reach out to USA consumers using alternative channels such as online and physical retail stores. However, Huawei will continue on its determined campaign to pierce through the lucrative North American market. That may be good news for consumers, but that not might bode well for Huawei.

Seemingly unmindful of the setback, Huawei made known of its resolve to have a get-go on the USA market.
