Huawei smartphones: where Hollywood meets Silicon Valley
Described as a more exclusive honour than Hollywood’s WoF by The Daily Mail, a special ‘handprint’ ceremony was held yesterday (6th June) where Chan made his prints in front of an audience including Jaden Smith – son of Will Smith and Chan’s young co-star in the recent remake of The Karate Kid. It is not known where previous prints vanished to, however spokespeople from the Chinese Theatre say that rather than being stolen, the slab was removed to make room for new entries. Also in attendance was fellow Rush Hour series actor and friend, Chris Tucker , who appeared alongside Chan in the hugely commercially successful martial arts/comedy action blockbusters. Giving a speech at the event, Tucker showed his respect for Buddhist and fighting expert Chan: “It was just an honour to be in a movie with him…He’s been a mentor, a big brother.

EDT, June 7, 2013 Visitors to Hollywood Casino in Perryville can now walk through the door with hopes of winning more than a big slots score or lucrative poker jackpot. The casino, owned by Penn National, is offering a series of contests and events in partnership with the Aberdeen IronBirds, a minor league affiliate of the Orioles’. Starting Monday, casino goers can enter to win merchandise signed by IronBirds owner and Orioles great Cal Ripken Jr. There is, of course, something of a catch: Getting an entry form requires getting a Club Hollywood Card, which enters you in the company’s sophisticated tracking and communication program.

Huawei, probably better known as a leading telecoms gear maker under fire from U.S. politicians over its potential links to the Chinese state, is looking to drive sales of its consumer devices, but is hobbled by not having effective consumer retail channels. Traditionally, it co-brands its devices with carriers. In an interview on Friday, Guo told Reuters he sees this changing as Huawei shifts from focusing on the technology in its devices to better understanding consumers’ tastes and perceptions. “In some ways, (designing) a smartphone is in the middle of Silicon Valley and Hollywood,” he said.
