Microsoft continues sale of Huawei laptops

Microsoft Corp. said it is once again selling Huawei laptops online, after a weeks-long break due to the ongoing trade war between China and the United States which led to Washington blacklisting the Chinese company and restricting its business with the US companies.

"We have been evaluating, and will continue to respond to, the many business, technical and regulatory complexities stemming from the recent addition of Huawei to the US Department of Commerce’s Export Administration Regulations Entity List. As a result, we are resuming the sale of existing inventory of Huawei devices at Microsoft Store," a Microsoft spokesperson told CNBC.

The US tech giant also said that it will keep delivering software updates to Huawei devices. "We remain committed to providing exceptional customer experiences. Our initial evaluation of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s decision on Huawei has indicated we may continue to offer Microsoft software updates to customers with Huawei devices," Microsoft said.
