Microsoft giant Microsoft honors US President Donald Trump’s order to remove Chinese technology companies and download Huawei laptops from his shop, without mentioning possible restrictions on Windows.
The Microsoft Store List for MateBook X Pro mysteriously disappeared over the weekend, and Huawei’s hardware search did not show results at the Microsoft Store, The Verge said Tuesday. The report added that Microsoft stores are still selling MateBook X Pro devices in stock.
The potential for Microsoft’s Windows ban can also affect Huawei’s server solutions. Microsoft and Huawei work with hybrid cloud solutions for Microsoft Azure Stack using a Huawei certified Microsoft server.
At the weekend, Google suspended Huawei’s Android license, but Microsoft said nothing about it would prevent Chinese companies from getting Windows licenses.
So far, Huawei has provided a 90-day extension to provide software updates to Android mobile devices and “continue to work on existing networks and devices.”
However, this strict extension does not seem to apply to Windows licenses for laptops, the report added.
American chipmakers, Intel and Qualcomm must also comply with the US government recently.
