Breaking: Microsoft gets license to sell software to Huawei, Google awaits
On Thursday, Microsoft said it has acquired a US government export license to sell its software services to Huawei.
“On November 20, the U.S. Department of Commerce granted Microsoft’s request for a license to export mass-market software to Huawei. We appreciate the Department’s action in response to our request,” a Microsoft spokesman told Reuters via email.
Earlier this week, the US Commerce Department confirmed it has begun issuing licenses for some companies to sell goods to Huawei. However, it was not immediately confirmed which products have been approved for sale to the Chinese tech giant.
A U.S. official said of roughly 300 license requests, about half have been processed. Roughly half of those – or one-quarter of the total – have been approved and the rest have been denied.
However, Huawei has been anxiously awaiting a license for Alphabet Google to supply its mobile services to new models and helps to sell its products in the global markets.
A different source confirms that some licenses for sales of cell phone components and non-electronic components were approved.
Back in May, the US Commerce Department added Huawei into the Entity-List and imposed trade restrictions that prohibit it from buying US technologies.
Soon after the US trade blacklisting, Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO, Richard Yu told Huawei has abandoned its current plans to launch new MateBooks due to the lack of accessibility to required components and software services.
Recently, a new leak reveals that Huawei is working on two new MateBooks that will come in 14 and 15-inch display sizes. And this new news will really bring some ease to launch these new laptops in the market.
