    According to Reuters, citing a source close to the matter, Google was forced into suspending business with Huawei that “requires the transfer of hardware and software products.”

    “Huawei Technologies Co Ltd will immediately lose access to updates to the Android operating system, and the next version of its smartphones outside of China will also lose access to popular applications and services including the Google Play Store and Gmail app,” Reuters noted.

    This effectively means no further Android security updates for devices new and old, including the recent P30 and P30 Pro, Mate 20 Pro, and many more.

    Google’s actions come after the U.S. Commerce Department’s announcement on Wednesday, which placed Huawei and some 68 affiliates on a so-called Entity List, a trade blacklist, following an executive order signed by U.S. President Trump.

    This could happen to any other phone supplier: Lg, Samsung, Nokia etc.
    Boeing could be forced to stop selling spare parts to any country the US is in conflict with. Bad for the credibility of the US to use their products as a political weapon against their customers. Mixing politics with business is not a good idea.

    But it may get Android R once the situation calms down to a low roar.

    I don't think so. Once Huawei moves away from Google, it will be for good. Once the trust is gone, it won't come back.

    Its not even conflict

    The Yanks have been asked exactly what evidence they have against Huawei repeatedly and have never provided anything.

    **** this.

    Maybe the same reason the UK has doubts about Huawei.

    None of that article came from anyone official

    Fact is if you actually look beyond the smear campaign, by the billionaires running the media with US business interests, the UK and others have not found any evidence to not trust Huawei.

    BT fully vetted out Huawei before awarding them contracts and Huawei passed.

    Which is why they are in the discussion to take on our 5G upgrades.

    Its only the megalomaniac Trump who keeps spouting off but wont provide evidence when asked.
    And off course others have to say the same for politics

    Don't blame Google or Android. They didn't place the ban.

    I just ordered my P30 Lite this morning. If I'm not going to get updates and have access to the Play Store, I'll have to return it.

    I would cancel the order or return it once you get it because this is a massive blow to Huawei. I wouldn't take the chance on getting Huawei phones, just not worth it now.

    This is huge, I got my P30 Pro on launch. I KNOW they are working on their own OS but it is not the same. This is what happens when all huge companies are US based.

    US wants to dominate the 5G by selling their own stuff and their own terms and can never play nice with competition. Hence they came up with this nonsense to ban Huawei.
    So far as with wars, zero proof of anything. However there were millions of documents as proof on wikileaks on their shady deals and fake pretext for wars.

    It's a shame as paying customers get dragged into the mix . Hopefully they can find a solution.
