BREAKING, Trump Tariffs Starting To Take Devastating Toll On China



Alphabet Inc’s Google has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware, software and technical services except those publicly available via open source licensing, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Sunday, in a blow to the Chinese technology company that the U.S. government has sought to blacklist around the world.

Holders of current Huawei smartphones with Google apps, however, will continue to be able to use and download app updates provided by Google, a Google spokesperson said, confirming earlier reporting by Reuters.

“We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications,” the Google spokesperson said.

“For users of our services, Google Play and the security protections from Google Play Protect will continue to function on existing Huawei devices,” the spokesperson said, without giving further details.

The suspension could hobble Huawei’s smartphone business outside China as the tech giant will immediately lose access to updates to Google’s Android operating system. Future versions of Huawei smartphones that run on Android will also lose access to popular services including the Google Play Store and Gmail and YouTube apps.

“Huawei will only be able to use the public version of Android and will not be able to get access to proprietary apps and services from Google,” the source said.

On Friday the U.S. Commerce Department said it was considering scaling back restrictions on Huawei to “prevent the interruption of existing network operations and equipment.” It was not immediately clear on Sunday whether Huawei’s access to mobile software would be affected.

The extent to which Huawei will be hurt by the U.S. government’s blacklist is not yet known as its global supply chain assesses the impact. Chip experts have questioned Huawei’s ability to continue to operate without U.S. help.

Details of the specific services affected by the suspension were still being discussed internally at Google, according to the source. Huawei attorneys are also studying the impact of the blacklist, a Huawei spokesman said on Friday. Huawei was not immediately...

  1. From what I understand devices from that company are crammed with hardware based espionage
    devices and that the their rejection by the American government had to be devistating.
    This was not so much a tariff, but an outright ban. America is the number one user of
    smart phones so the Chi-coms must be crapping peach-pits.

    America's next move should be to have them produce a million devices and demand to be allowed
    to pick a few hundred random samples and have them analyzed by our techno-nerds before we
    would allow them to ship them to America. After that, the government should continue a
    random testing program to make sure they did not pull a bait and switch number.

    Presedent Trump is aware that an actual trade war will do more damage to China that will us.
    Trump has already beaten them!
