Recently, Huawei filed a lawsuit against the US government – the reason was the ban on using Chinese telecommunications equipment. And even if the legal confrontation has just begun, Huawei already has a plan of action in the event of a loss.
The company has issued an ultimatum: if it is not authorized to enter the American market, it will abandon the Android and Windows operating systems in its products.
Huawei Executive Director Richard Yu stated this in a conversation with Welt:
We have developed our operating system, so we have a plan B in case we have to leave Android and Windows.
The South China Morning Post publication reports that Huawei began working on its operating system seven years ago. According to Yu, the company would like to continue using Google and Microsoft products, but if the United States continues to push it out of the market, they will pass on their operating system without hesitation.
These threats are directed not so much at the United States government as at Microsoft and Google. Probably Huawei expects US companies to persuade politicians to relieve pressure, thus avoiding a new round of commercial waves. After all, if the second smartphone manufacturer were to abandon American software, it will be bad for everyone.
