Another US tech giant is distancing itself from Huawei.
Microsoft (MSFT) has removed the Chinese company’s laptops from its online store. A search on Friday for “Huawei” returned no results for any devices, and links to the latest models now show error messages. Microsoft (MSFT) declined to comment on when the products were removed.
The move comes after the United States placed Huawei on a trade blacklist, barring US businesses from selling tech and components to the company. Under the new restrictions, Microsoft can no longer supply its Windows operating system to Huawei, which the Chinese company uses in its laptops.
Microsoft spokesman Andrew Pickup said Friday that the company is “not offering comment on this topic in any capacity.” Huawei did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
It is just the latest setback for the Chinese tech giant.
