President Yoshida: Introduce my personal situation. Six years ago, I also came to Huawei. At the time, I was at So-net, mainly responsible for fixed networks. At that time, we planned to start this service in 2013, and we chose Huawei's terminal. Although we also have a voice against Huawei and it is only a small contract of 10 million US dollars, we came to Huawei in 2012 and found that Huawei welcomes us. . We heard the introduction of the vision and heard the idea of “customer-centric”.
Ren Zong: On the 3D lens, we are willing to strengthen cooperation with Sony. Of course, the following content only represents my personal opinion and does not represent the organization's opinions. After I have spoken, they will go to the leadership to convey whether the leadership accepts this point and will tell you after the resolution is formed.
First, in the research of the lens, we have a lot of advanced technology, you can consider authorizing you to tell us about our advanced technology, let Apple use, but we do not reversely ask Apple to tell us their secrets. I hope that in this world, we will work together to serve human society.
Second, in terms of power technology, we should be the leading Apple. Can we consider supplying power modules to Apple to improve the power consumption of Apple phones; or we authorize Apple to produce only patent fees.
My thoughts are very open, but I still need the company's board of directors to approve my ideas.
President Yoshida: It seems that from a certain period of time, Huawei has defined the open strategy. Does the open strategy mean coexistence with partners?
