Microsoft Resume Sales Of Huawei Laptops Online Despite U.S. Ban
On Monday, Microsoft Corporation announced that it has resumed sales of Huawei laptops on its website after a weeks-long stoppage.
Microsoft is one of America's biggest companies with its headquarters in Redmond, Washington. It develops, manufactures, licenses, supports and sells computer software, consumer electronics, personal computers, and related services.

The action reflects the evolving dynamic for United States companies that have done business with Huawei, which has been caught in the middle of the growing U.S.-China trade tension.
The move by Microsoft is a sign of cooperation with a company that generates a good perceentage of Window's revenue. Despite Microsoft's focus on cloud computing products, Windows still remain cor to the company's business.

Last week a U.S government agency issued an instruction restricting how U.S companies could sell products to Huawei. Shortly after the restriction, Microsoft’s supply of devices like the MateBook X Pro vanished. The agency then eased restrictions for 90 days, leading to changes in the way Google would work with Huawei during that period.
“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 U.S. 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 in an email.

In addition, Microsoft said it would keep delivering software update to Huawei devices that people own today.
“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.
