Google restringe o uso do Android pela Huawei
May 20, 2019 -- Google afasta a Huawei de algumas atualizações ao sistema operativo móvel Android, depois de a Administração Trump adicionar a Huawei à lista das empresas com que as firmas dos EUA não podem negociar sem uma licença específica.
Google allows smartphone manufacturers to use Android and its basic services for free. But transfer of hardware, software or services to Huawei or technical interaction would be restricted by the U.S. order.
That would strip Huawei phones of Google maps and other services that require direct support. That might hurt Huawei where consumers can pick other brands that carry the full suite of Google features.
The U.S. government says Chinese suppliers including Huawei and its smaller rival, ZTE Corp., pose an espionage threat because they are beholden to China's ruling Communist Party.
But American officials have presented no evidence of any Huawei equipment serving as intentional conduits for espionage by Beijing.
