Huawei in big trouble; company must come clean and explain its MWC actions
Did Huawei track the movements of MWC visitors using its security badges?

This is why Huawei haters feel that the company should continue to be punished by the U.S.
In his tweet, ruuki wrote, “Opening the lanyard of one of our competitors in #MWC23 #MWC2023. OK – maybe it is just tracking which demos a visitor sees at our competitor’s booth. Some of the people who found out did not like it at all. Some people forgot theirs in @Nokia booth.”
While this writer still thinks that Huawei makes great smartphones and should have the right to compete worldwide, the optics here look bad and allow those Huawei haters to explain that things like this are why Huawei should continue to be punished by the U.S. On the other hand, visitors to Huawei’s booth were supposed to turn in their badges when leaving the exhibit so why would Huawei hide a tracker in its badges? The company still needs to give a longer and more detailed answer.
