Yesterday it was reported that Google, along with a slew of chipmakers, would be suspending its business operations with Huawei. In real world terms, it would mean that Huawei devices would no longer have access to Google-owned apps, the Google Play store or get Android OS and security updates - other than what is available through an open source license. Huawei has now responded to the decision.
