Microsoft has stopped selling the Huawei MateBook X Pro in its online store in the wake of the US Government’s blacklisting of the Chinese firm.
The move follows news that Google will be banning Huawei smartphones and tablets from getting Android updates, and suggests that even though the ban has been temporarily lifted, it could mean that Microsoft will indeed be halting updates for Huawei laptops.
As reported earlier this week, Microsoft has refused to confirm or deny that it will block Windows 10 updates on Huawei laptops. This uncertainty means you should probably hold off buying a Huawei laptop right now.
By dropping Huawei laptops from its store, it looks like Microsoft is acquiescing with the US Government’s demand to stop business with the company. This may lead to an official halting of Windows 10 updates as well.
