Microsoft has started selling Huawei laptops on their website again after the Chinese company’s products were taken down from the Microsoft Store to comply with US restrictions against Huawei.
It all started last month when the US government placed Huawei on its entity list on grounds that their hardware are potential security risks. The ban prevented the US companies like Google, Android, ARM, Facebook, and more from doing business with the Chinese company. Since then, Huawei was given a 90-day reprieve, easing restrictions that allowed them to continue doing business with their US partners.
The reprieve allowed Microsoft to resume sales of Huawei devices on the Microsoft Store, stating that they are selling existing inventory.
Moreover, Microsoft said that they will continue to deliver software updates to Huawei devices that have already been sold.
According to a Microsoft, their initial evaluation of the US government’s decision on Huawei has indicated that they can continue offering software updates to customers with Huawei devices.
