Huawei Tablet When Will It Stop?

yes, you should have.

 

ignorance is no bar to authority here.

 

everyone an expert.

Well, the wife was kidding me.  She said, "we can give it to my sister."  We give her sister's family all my tech errors.  TV's, phones, computers, tablets and so on.  They are quite well equipped with smart watches as I bought 5 and still don't have what I really want.

Here's another good article from Ars Technica on the same subject, with basically the same key points:

 

https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2019/05/google-reportedly-ends-business-with-huawei-will-cut-it-off-from-play-store/

 

Quote

Google issued only a terse one-liner, saying "We are complying with the order and reviewing the implications." On Twitter, the company's official Android account was a bit friendlier, saying "For Huawei users' questions regarding our steps to comply w/ the recent US government actions: We assure you while we are complying with all US gov't requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device."

 

But Huawei's future phone and tablet devices will be a whole different matter, 

 

Quote

the next version of its smartphones outside of China will also lose access to popular applications and services including the Google Play Store and Gmail app..... The real killer is the loss of the Google Play Store and Google Play Services, which unlocks access to the billions of Android apps and popular Google apps like Gmail and Maps. Reuters claims this will only happen to "the next version" of Huawei's smartphones, presumably meaning existing devices with the Play Store will continue to work.

Some of the options are listed in this thread...

 

Very few of them are good.

 

Again, if you've ever had a device which was blacklisted you'd know what one might expect.

Fundamentally, the only way Huawei can now continue using Android onto its smartphones is building its own custom version of Android using AOSP (Android Open Source Project) code, exactly how developers of custom ROMs do. Unlike custom ROMs, however, Huawei might not be able to strap GApps along with the package without going unnoticed by Google.

 

All in all, the situation is really bad for Huawei. The only plausible options it has for now is to either finally start rolling out its own operating system that it has reportedly been working on, in the anticipation of the day when the U.S. finally obstructs its usage of Android. That might be a challenging shift since most Huawei users are habitual of Android and the Google ecosystem. But, so long as the operating system resembles Android in terms of experience and allows the installation of Google apps, it should be useful. However, we haven’t seen any previews yet, which means that it might not be ready for use just yet.

 

Alternatively, Huawei could continue to tinker with Android and use AOSP builds to continue providing EMUI updates. However, in that case, it will not be able to support Google Play Services and other Google apps. This will limit the users to rely on Huawei’s AppGallery, which has a relatively smaller number of apps, even though that wouldn’t resolve the issue with Google apps.

It looks like a valid additional piece of news on this topic was removed... So I'm going to repost it without the original added comment I made on the subject:

Chinese technology giant Huawei has been granted a 90-day temporary license to maintain its networks and continue dealing with UScompanies, scaling back the restrictions imposed last week when the company was added to a blacklist by the White House.
 

The US Commerce Department will allow Huawei to purchase US-made goods in order to maintain existing networks and provide software updates to existing Huawei handsets.

 

 

https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-plans-temporary-exemptions-to-huawei-blacklist-11558397319

U.S. officials said Monday they would grant a handful of temporary exceptions to an export blacklist against Huawei Technologies Co., giving some suppliers and customers of China’s telecom giant a 90-day reprieve from tough trade penalties.

 

In an order scheduled to be published on Wednesday, the Commerce Department said it would grant a temporary license for U.S. exports to Huawei and dozens of its affiliates. The U.S. issued the blacklist order last week on grounds that Huawei was a national security threat.

No. It is the other way around. America can listen to your subversive activities on all of your devices. But they have a problem doing that to a Huawei device 'cos it lacks the back door.

 

There is too much disarray in America. Nothing to fear.

Throw it in the toilet bowl, that way Beijing won't be able to listen to your subversive activities.

I gave one away but not for that reason but because it blocked me from using VPN.

Anyone who's had a device which becomes incompatible with Play Services knows what's coming for the OP.

 

It ain't pretty.

 

You'll have to flash a custom ROM, or wait for Huwaei to push their own custom ROM based on AOSP.

 

It won't be a brick, but forget about Youtube, Drive, Chrome, Play Store, Apps (even side-loading).

 

Suspect developers will try work-arounds. Some may work. 

 

Pray Store.

 

 

 

 

 

They could always switch to Microsoft.it will be windows phone .

 

Microsoft stopped selling Huawei products but has remained silent if it will revoke license .

 

google license has been extended by 3 months to August.

 

i have a feeling once the hype is over, all will return to normal but perhaps Huawei will have to pay license fee to google and google may limit some access.

 

too many people around the globe are using Huawei products, some groups could easily file lawsuit against US and will win compensation for having to buy new phones, this would run into billions of dollars .
