Huawei ban list and timeline: Google, Microsoft, Android fallout

Today we’re going to run down the effective Huawei ban list, the basics in China-based spy fears, and the fallout. This has a little to do with ZTE, a lot to do with China’s government, and what might be the worst bout of luck a company ever had (with regard to their native country’s timing for a trade war with the United States). But most importantly, we’re going to list all the places Huawei’s been banned, rejected, or removed in the recent past. SEE: Updates at the end of this text.

Back in January of 2006, a Newsweek report suggested India’s Intelligence Bureau suspected Huawei “had ties” to China’s intelligence apparatus and military. British government officials had similar concerns during the proposed 2005 Huawei bid for ownership of the electronics and information technology firm.

In 2011, Verizon and AT&T had to send the US Commerce Department information about potential China-based spyware. In 2012, the bans began. Have a peek at Huawei and ZTE could “undermine US national security” say lawmakers from October of 2012. A large part of this had to do with embargoed equipment sales in Iran and Huawei’s apparent bypassing of that embargo.

Huawei / US Government / Market Timeline:

• Huawei faced a ban in Canada in 10/12 (October, 2012)

• US government purchase of China-made tech banned in 03/13

• Huawei said they’d “exit the US market” in 12/13

• US bill sought federal ban on working with ZTE and Huawei in 01/18

• AT&T backed out of a Huawei deal in 01/18 (link below)

• Verizon dropped Huawei phones in 01/18

• Best Buy pulled Huawei phones from store shelves in USA in 03/18

• Huawei, ZTE banned from military base retail stores in 05/18

• In Australia, Huawei banned from use of NBN 5G network 06/18

• Huawei phones banned from use with video app VLC in 07/18

• DNC warns Democrats in US government to avoid Huawei and ZTE 08/18

• ZTE, Huawei banned completely from US government use in 08/18

• Huawei phones banned from 3DMark benchmarking software for cheating, 09/18

• All major US carriers drop Huawei, US gov pressures parent companies in 12/18

• Huawei banned from government contracts (and use by government officials) in 12/18

• The US DOJ hit Huawei with charges of fraud, sanctions violations, etc, in 01/19

• Google banned Huawei from key Android apps and updates on May 19th, 2023

• Qualcomm, Intel, Xilinx, Broadcom cut off Huawei hardware on May 19th, 2023

• Microsoft removes Huawei laptop from store shelves, May 21st, 2023

In October of 2013, Huawei suggested that it’d take one decade to convince the USA that they were safe to use. When this article is set to go live, it’s been a few months shy of six years since Huawei made that prediction. In July of 2024, Google teamed up with Huawei to make the Nexus 6P – since then, things have been decent between the companies (until this month).

It January of 2023 that Huawei was supposed to bring a major smartphone to a US-based carrier. At the last minute, government pressure seemed to be too much for AT&T and AT&T backed out of the deal. As that deal break-up was made public, the Huawei CEO went off-script at CES 2023 about the USA’s attitude toward his company. He did that again in March of 2023.

The investigation on Iran trade did no favors for Huawei in April of 2023. At this point it was apparent Huawei was developing its own OS as replacement for Android – perhaps in anticipation of Google’s eventual souring of relations in the USA.

There was a publicly-readable collaboration allegation that Huawei and the Chinese government’s intelligence community collaborated at some point before April of 2023. That allegation came from the CIA on April 21st, 2023.

UPDATE: Now that Google’s effectively banned Huawei from a future with Android, things must look bleak at Huawei headquarters. After the initial ban, Google revealed a 90 day extension. That ban also apparently did not include Google Play and security from Google Play Protect – and both will continue to function, for now. Stay tuned as this timeline extends.UPDATE 2, May 30, 2023: While Huawei was temporarily removed from the roster at the Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and SD card alliances, they’ve been reinstated once again.

Android 10 Release Dates And Phone List

Android 10 release dates and phone list

A report today suggests Google’s next OS update for smartphones called Android 10, or Android Q, will be released in the first week of September. This schedule fits with the phone list that’s already been in play for the Android Beta program for the software that’s just reached its final Beta earlier this month. All the Google Pixel phones are on the list, that’s almost a given, but what other devices will get Android 10 right away?

If you’ve been using the latest Android Beta software for Android Q – recently re-named Android 10 – you’ll more than likely see a final update to Android 10 in September. This goes for the Google Pixel, Pixel 2 and 3, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 XL and 3 XL, and the Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL. These are just the Google-made phones that’ll get the update straight from Google.

The ASUS ZenFone 5Z was part of the beta program and will therefore almost certainly get the final update to Android 10. This also goes for the Essential Phone PH-1, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, LG G8 ThinQ, Nokia 8.1, OnePlus 6T, OPPO Reno, Realme 3 Pro, Sony XPERIA XZ3, Techno Spark 3 Pro, Vivo X27, Nex S, Nex A, Xiaomi Mi 9, and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G.

This Beta program began in March of 2023 with Beta 1, then moved to Beta 2 in April, Beta 3 in May, and Beta 4 in June. Users found Beta 5 released in July, then paused, then continued not long after a brief bit of mishap. The final pre-release beta update was Beta 6, and it sported gesture tweaks aplenty.

The rumor today suggests that September 3, 2023 is the official Android 10 release date for the public. This suggestion comes from a pair of tech support screenshots shared by users to PhoneArena this morning. It’s a logical date to release a software update if one wants to hit the first business day of the month.

If we look to past updates, we see a slightly willy-nilly approach to day-of-week releases. Like the August 6, 2023 release of Android 9 Pie (that was a Monday). The August 21, 2023 release) of Android 8 Oreo was also a Monday.

The August 22nd, 2024 release of Android 7 Nougat was… also a Monday. Marshmallow, which was Android 6, was released in October! That version of Android was released in 2024, on the 5th of October, which put its release on… a Monday. It would seem that it’s pretty likely Google is apt to release their next version of Android on a Monday too – unless they do, indeed, decide that releasing on September’s first business day (aka not Labor Day, which is on September 2nd, a Monday.)

Either that, or we’ll see Android 10 released later today, a Monday, the 26th of August. September 9th, a Monday, would be outright.

Beyond The Ban: Revisiting In

Where are we today with banning the Internet in schools? It was all the rage about three years ago. It would seem that technology has taken us farther away from the dark ages of the scary Internet. Mobile devices have underscored the fact that people have access to the Internet almost anywhere and at any time. Social media has gained a much larger acceptance with the public. Learning through social media has achieved a legitimate place among educators. Even the airlines have revisited their policies on in-flight Internet access. It is becoming more and more apparent to educators and parents that kids can gain access to the Internet without the help and guidance from schools.

Misguided Restrictions

The very laws — FERPA, COPPA and CIPA — that schools often hid behind in order to justify banning were originally designed to protect kids from unscrupulous profiteering companies that attempted to acquire personal information from minors. It was never the intention of these laws to require schools to ban teachers and students from accessing the Internet for the purpose of learning. How districts felt the necessity to ban adult educators, as well as kids, always baffled me. Nevertheless, these were the laws many administrators cited as the reason for doing so. I imagine that there are still some misguided people continuing to invoke these laws, while feeding into and off the fears of parents, fueled by tech companies selling security software. Yes, access to porn is always the big consideration, as it has been for as long as I can remember, and I go back many decades to before the Internet. I question whether a school-wide ban of the Internet is an effective and efficient counter measure when consideration is given to what else has been shut out by such a ban.

Common sense should be guiding force of Internet security for schools. Certainly the early grades of elementary school need less access and more monitoring, but the best thing educators can provide is the proper attitude and a huge emphasis on digital citizenship. The very best example that will benefit kids is the proper modeling from adults, teachers and parents. The more kids know early on about their personal responsibility, as well as the consequences of poor judgment on the Internet, the better prepared they will be when they become less monitored and less controlled.

A common sense policy for kids would reduce the restrictions as the kids got older. Certainly, teaching kids early insures at least a preparation for the realities of the Internet whenever the time comes, inside or outside of school, that each child is personally exposed in an unfettered way to the Internet. One thing we can be sure of is that day will come, and when it does, knowledge will be that kid’s best defense.

Training and Guidance

We prepare kids to drive with driver training courses. We require a minimum number of hours before they get behind the wheel on their own. They do, however, get behind the wheel on their own. This most often takes place before they leave high school. We need a similar approach to driving on the Internet. The world in which our kids will live already requires them to be Internet savvy in order to exist in a tech-driven culture, let alone to effectively compete in that world.

We can say that if a teacher is effectively engaging kids in meaningful learning, then there should be no problems with discipline or kids freely accessing their devices. In reality, however, that doesn’t always hold true for even for the best of teachers. The fact is that older students may need guidelines for when and where to use mobile devices. We do as adults, so why would kids be any different? We are often asked in certain establishments or venues to turn off our devices, and we comply. The best school policies for acceptable use should spell that out for kids as well.

My favorite policy is for red, yellow and green zones. The green zone is free use of devices. This would account for cafeteria, library and common areas. The red zones, where devices cannot be used, would be the auditorium, gymnasium or a pool area. The yellow zones would be places where devices could be used with permission — classrooms and labs.

Teachers have the right to maintain classroom guidelines, as classroom discipline has always been a primary function for teachers. Today, however, that requires many more decisions for many more complexities, far more than teachers had to face in previous years. That can be scary, but not insurmountable. We need to teach our educators new methods to deal with new technologies that will continue to develop. Banning the use of technologies is a shortsighted fix that does not enhance learning. With a newfound focus on expanding broadband in all schools, these are policy considerations we need to address now, and not after the changes have been made.

How To Download And Install Google Play On Android

Since 2012 when it was launched, Google Play has grown to become a one-stop shop where Android users can download apps, music, games, movies and videos, ebooks and more. Some of this content is free while others are available for purchase, plus there are instant apps you can use without having to install the app.

Most Android phones come with Google Play preinstalled, but there are others that don’t have it, which means you can’t access the entire range of its offerings.

If you picked an Android device that doesn’t have Google Play on it or just want to install the latest version of the app manually, we show several methods here for downloading and installing it.

Download Google Play from APK Mirror

For older Android phones (pre-Oreo), go to Settings and enable installation from Unknown Sources before going to APK Mirror to download the Google Play app. You’ll get a prompt to allow the download and installation, so tap Yes to confirm the action.

If your Android phone is a newer version, such as Android 9 (Pie) or Android 10, you can install Google Play manually using these steps:

1. Open Settings and go to Apps.

2. Find your mobile browser, for example Chrome, and tap on it.

3. Scroll down to the Advanced section and tap “Install Unknown apps.”

4. Select Allow from this source. Once you’re done with these steps, you can disable this option.

5. Go to chúng tôi and search for the latest Google Play version to download the APK. If you get a message saying, “This type of file can harm your device,” tap OK. Go to your notifications bar, open the APK download file, and tap Install.

How to Install Google Play Using Your Computer

Besides installing Google Play on your smartphone, you can use your computer if you don’t have a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection.

Using this method, download the Google Play APK to the computer using the same instructions above together with your phone’s file manager app.

1. Download the latest Google Play app APK version from APK Mirror, and then connect your phone and computer using a USB cable. Copy the APK to your Android phone and open it from the file manager app.

2. Open the APK, give the necessary permissions and then tap Install.

3. Once you’re done, remove the permissions you gave on your device (install from Unknown Sources) from the file management app if you won’t be sideloading APKs again. Sideloading helps avoid APK installation issues when using a USB cable with your phone and PC.

From now on, when a newer version is available, your sideloaded Google Play app will update automatically.


Now that you know how to install Google Play on your Android device, it’s time to explore and learn the content available on the platform. If you’re new to the store, take time to go through the home screen or use the search bar to find some cool apps, music, movies, games or ebooks and other exciting content while you’re at it.

Best Huawei P20 And P20 Pro Cases

We’ve scoured the web to bring you the best cases for both the 5.8in screened P20 and the 6.1in P20 Pro. Whether you want to show off the awesome colours with a clear case or want something hardier, here are the best.

If you’re looking to upgrade, we also gathered the best P40 and P40 Pro deals here.

Official Huawei P20 Colour Hard Shell Case

Huawei itself has a great selection of affordable official cases including this hard shell. It keeps your P20 slim and sleek but with decent protection from drops and scuffs. The black case is nicely understated but does cover up the bold colours of the phone.

Pick it for the P20 for £18/$19 from Mobile Fun. Options for the P20 Pro are available on Amazon for under £5 in the UK ($17 in the US).

Official Huawei P20 Smart View Flip Case

If you’re after a flip case, this official one from Huawei is smart. Not only does it provide screen protection, the window design means you can view the time and notifications even when the case is closed.

It gives access to all ports, buttons and the camera, and you can even talk on the phone with it closed. A great all rounder.

It costs £5.99 on Amazon. The P20 Pro option costs around £32.

Olixar FlexiShield Huawei P20 Case

Olixar continues its excellent line of affordable gel-style simple cases with this for the P20. The extra grippy material means you won’t be dropping your previous phone in a rush.

It’s not the most protective case should you drop it from a great height, but for peace of mind under a tenner it’s a worthy option.

Pick it for the P20 for £4.99/$6.99, or for the P20 Pro also for £4.99/$6.99.

Love Mei Powerful Huawei P20 Protective Case

This is one of the oddest cases we’ve seen for a while, but we kinda dig it. It’s also pretty much guaranteed to save your breakable Huawei P20 from any sort of harm given its complete protective design.

It also makes the non-waterproof P20 water and dust resistant. With access to all ports via flaps and a lanyard loop, it’s a niche but fully featured option.

It’s available for the P20 for £23.99 and P20 Pro for £30/$31.

Official Huawei P20 Pro Silicone Case

Another official case from Huawei at a great price point. If you want the best fitting silicone case for your P20 Pro, this is it.

The blue colour in particular stands out for us, and there’s a microfiber lining on the inside to keep the glass and metal body intact. Just be aware that like other silicone cases it may collect dust on the outside.

Pick it up for the P20 for around £7 and the P20 Pro for around £11.

Spigen Rugged Armor Huawei P20 Tough Case

No case roundup is complete without a Spigen Rugged Armor case. The company keeps the designs similar for its range and offer subtle protection, though it does cover up the phone completely save for the screen.

It has a carbon fibre texture and is flexible enough to easily get on and off the phone.

Availabe for the P20 for £7.99/$19.99 and for the P20 Pro for £7.89/$19.99.

Acer Aspire Timeline 3810T Laptop

The Acer Aspire 3810T, aka the Acer Timeline, has two things going for it: This model is one of the first laptops out the gate to use an Intel CULV processor (in this case, the 1.4GHz U9400). The 3810T also has a sharp style that’s sure to grab attention. How does this laptop stand up to the MSI X340 or to the HP Pavilion dv2 (which uses the first-gen Athlon Neo CPU)? Pretty well.

But where do you peg a portable like this? Is it a high-powered tweener, or is it a low-performance ultraportable on the cheap? That depends on whom you ask. The dv2 stretches the definition of a netbook. The X340 is a slim, plasticky, poor-man’s MacBook Air. The Timeline is a sleek, solid notebook, but it’s the size of a conventional ultraportable. Measuring 12.67 by 1.13 by 8.97 inches and weighing 3.5 pounds, this system could be easily confused with a traditional laptop.

Among the Timeline’s handy and unique features are a couple of touch-inducive shortcuts. A Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n toggle sits next to a shortcut to Acer Backup Manager (an easy-to-use software utility) and a quick toggle for a battery-saving mod.

Camping below all that is a good-sized touchpad. It has the same texture as the wrist rest, and the only indicator that you’re in the strike zone is a slight speed bump surrounding the area. The mouse-button bar has an odd lip that your finger can slip into so that your thumb can rest while you navigate. I’m not particularly crazy about the cheap plastic feel of both the wrist rest and the button, but the setup certainly gets the job done. I know it’s an entirely different class, but I wish that more portable makers would take a cue from the Asus Eee PC 1008HA, which has golf-ball-like dimples dotting the active touchpad area. And metallic buttons on the Timeline wouldn’t hurt, either.

The screen is nice–provided that you use the Timeline only indoors. The glossy 1366-by-768-pixel panel has colors that pop. If you saw this system on a store shelf, you’d be drawn in by the rich reds and blues that don’t drown each other out. Try typing on it outside, however, and you’re looking into a fairly expensive mirror. It’s not exactly unusable–I wrote half this review outdoors. But the display is extremely dim, and making out much more than black text on a white background under broad daylight is hard. In short, it’s just the continuing curse of the glossy screen coating.

As for the software, yes, you get some of the usual trialware (Microsoft Office, for instance). However, Acer has also thrown some helpful applications into the mix, ones that might be worth your while to try. Beyond Office, you get Microsoft Works, the eSobi news reader, the aforementioned backup utility, MyWinLocker for safely stowing files, and Orion, a soup-to-nuts IM/communication client. Oh, yeah–you’ll also find a host of obnoxious casual-game demos in the “Acer GameZone” that you’ll probably want to uninstall the second you power the Timeline up.
