Dominoes continue to fall for Huawei in the wake of a Trump-led US trade ban. An internal ARM note It exposes the chip giant’s decision to pause “all active contracts, support rights and any outstanding commitments,” according to the BBC.
Although it is based in Cambridge, England, the company suffers from the trade problem due to its use of technology originating in the United States. The move is just another indication of how complex the problem will be in extracting US-based technology from these devices. If confirmed, many believe it could ultimately doom Huawei.
Huawei offered TechCrunch a pretty standard response to the news, once again talking about politics. “We value our close relationships with our partners, but we recognize the pressure some of them are under, as a result of politically motivated decisions,” he wrote. “We are confident that this unfortunate situation can be resolved and our priority remains to continue to provide world-class products and technology to our customers around the world.”
Google was one of the first to respond to Huawei’s inclusion in the US Department of Commerce’s “Entities” blacklist, and got support for Android. Other partners, including Microsoft, have been largely silent on the matter.
