Last month, Microsoft removed Huawei's notebook lineup from its online store, as a result of a new order to crack down on the Chinese technology company. While the software giant you remained silent If Huawei will still be able to get Windows licenses for its range of laptops, devices are now starting to come back online this week.
Twitter user WalkingCat noticed that Huawei's laptops are back, and we noticed that the MateBook 13, the MateBook, and the MateBook X Pro are all available again. The MateBook X Pro is currently listed as "out of stock", but the rest is available for purchase again.
The edge reaches out to Microsoft to comment several times when Huawei laptops removed last month, but the company refused to make a statement. Microsoft is no longer silent.
"We have assessed and will continue to address the many commercial, technical and regulatory complexities arising from the recent addition of Huawei to the US List of Entities of the Export Administration Regulations of the Ministry of Commerce," Microsoft spokesman said in a statement The edge. "As a result, we resume the sale of existing inventory of Huawei devices on the Microsoft Store."
The important words are "Existing Inventory" – when we asked Microsoft if the company was planning to continue to store and sell Huawei laptops, its spokesperson doubled his answer: "Microsoft Store sells an existing inventory, compliant with US standards in force.
Huawei has since postponed the launch a new Windows-based laptop that was due to be unveiled at CES Asia last week. It is not clear exactly what new Huawei laptop was planning to announce, but it has already been unveiled the MateBook 14 and updated its MateBook X Pro range at the MWC earlier this year.
