It looks like a large proportion of American tech firms and organizations are consenting to the restriction policy of Trump Administration that confines them from working with Huawei. The most recent of example is Microsoft, a tech behemoth, which already relinquished all their connection with Huawei and blocked the sales of the Huawei MateBook X Pro over its online consumer website, and Arm Holdings, whose contributions in shaping global smartphone tech industry is more than 95 percent.
Through compliance with the Trump administration’s national emergency declaration that abruptly and effectively forbids US tech companies from purchasing and utilizing telecoms gear manufactured by “International competitors” with Huawei being a recent addition in the list. The law excluded Huawei from doing business with US-based tech companies without Government approval, crippling its manufacturing hubs since top tech brands are expanding their distances from the world’s second largest Smartphone manufacturing firm.
After Google at first denied Huawei’s Android permit, limiting it from utilizing the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the US Commerce Department conceded a 90-day relief enabling Google to resume its services and keep providing security patches and program updates to Huawei gadgets.
Huawei MateBook X Pro is no longer available in Microsoft’s online store
The latest development highlighted the Huawei MateBook X Pro expelled from Microsoft’s store— as a direct effect of the policy, Redmond firm is agreeing to the administration boycott. However, Microsoft retail outlets throughout the US will continue selling the Huawei Matebook, but only the standout versions amongst the best models available in the market, until stock is exhausted.
While Microsoft has denied releasing any statement on continuing business with Huawei or preventing Huawei from getting Windows license, the current scenario for Huawei isn’t looking good under the strict regulations imposed by the Trump administration.
Many organizations, big or small, are breaking faith and severing ties with Huawei including British IP Vendor Arm, which is badly affected by the ban as its chip is based upon “US Origin Technology”.
UK mobile carrier EE, meanwhile, has dropped Huawei phones from its 5G network launch in the country.
