China's Huawei leads international patent filings: WIPO

Viewed as barometer of a country's technological progress, China sees double-digit growth in filings

Reuters

BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd became the world's No. 1 applicant for international patents in 2014, a United Nations agency said Thursday, underscoring the innovative strides made by Chinese technology companies.

Huawei was followed by San Diego-based chipmaker Qualcomm Inc while Huawei's crosstown rival ZTE Corp, which was the world's leading applicant in 2012, took third place in its number of filings, according to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

Qualcomm deal sparks China smartphone patent skirmishes

Settlement has allowed wireless patent holders like ZTE and Huawei Technologies to seek royalties

BEIJING (Reuters) - Last summer, lawyers from Chinese telecoms gear maker ZTE Corp began writing to half a dozen local handset makers it believed used its patents. Its message was simple: it's time to pay up.

ZTE's efforts to collect patent royalties - months ahead of Qualcomm Inc's China antitrust settlement this week, according to people with knowledge of the matter - shows how that deal has already changed the way China's booming smartphone industry does business.

China's Baidu pays price of mobile shift, fourth-quarter revenue disappoints

In spite of report that revenue from mobile searches surpassed PCs

Reuters

BEIJING/BENGALURU (Reuters) - Baidu Inc's shift to smartphones has come at a cost: the Chinese internet firm forecast lower-than-expected revenue growth for the first quarter as its share from less profitable mobile browsing grows at the expense of PC searches.

Baidu shares fell more than 9 percent in after-hours trading in New York after it also posted a lower-than-expected 47.5 percent rise in fourth quarter revenues. Its revenue forecast of 12.65-13.07 billion yuan ($2-$2.1 billion) for the current quarter came below analysts' average expectations of 13.62 billion yuan.

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Chinese smartphone maker ZTE Corp plans to invest 1.5 billion yuan ($240 million) in wireless charging technology for vehicles in 2015 and more than 2 billion yuan next year, a senior executive told Reuters on Thursday.

ZTE's director of corporate strategy, George Sun, also said the company had signed agreements with more than 20 cities in China to provide wireless charging technology for public transportation, in a significant boost for the country's electric car industry.

Chinese mobile data usage to make great leap forward

3 top carriers expected to market aggressively to rural China

Xiaomi to start small in U.S., with earphones and bands

No plan for phones and tablets now, partly because of carrier subsidy structure, which eliminates Xiaomi's cost advantage

Reuters

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Xiaomi [XTC.UL], China's largest smartphone company, will begin selling headphones, smart wristbands and other accessories online in the United States in coming months, taking its first tentative step onto Apple Inc's home turf without its signature Mi mobile devices.

The company also said it is close to securing a manufacturing partner in Brazil, which will help it skirt punishing tariffs on imported electronics when it begins sales in Latin America's largest economy in the first half of this year.

China's internet population hits 649 million, 86 pct on phones

Huge part of China's potential remains untapped in smaller cities and rural areas

Reuters

BEIJING (Reuters) - China had 649 million internet users by the end of 2014, with 557 million of those using handsets to go online, said a government report on Tuesday, as the world's biggest smartphone market continues its shift to mobile.

While growth is slowing, China's total internet population still rose by 31 million in 2014, said the report by the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC).

Growth in mobile internet users was faster, at 57 million.
