Google has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware or software and technical services.

Android apps will continue working on Huawei smartphones, but they will immediately lose access to updates on the operating system.

Future versions of Huawei’s Android smartphones will lose access to many apps, including Google Play Store, Gmail, YouTube and the Chrome browser.

The US on Thursday blacklisted Huawei, making it hard for the company to do business with American counterparts.

Arabile Gumede (in for Bruce Whitfield on The Money Show) interviewed Craig Wilson, Editor at Stuff Magazine.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and scroll down for more quotes from it).

All of its devices are run on Android… All of its laptops run on Windows… There are talks of them working on their own operating system… But it’s a two-horse game… one wonders if [they will be able to compete] …

Craig Wilson, Editor - Stuff Magazine

The Chinese… will retaliate…

Craig Wilson, Editor - Stuff Magazine

If I’m not sure I’m going to be able to run apps… such as Gmail… it’s gonna make me reticent to buy a Huawei…
