As many readers will have noticed, for some time now we have been trying to follow what is happening in the world of technology, with particular attention to geopolitical and strategic implications.
A year ago we highlighted what was happening in the world regarding microchip production, placing emphasis both on hardware manufacturers and on the holders of raw materials and the most innovative technologies.
Today we try to understand what is happening in the world of Huawei.
First it should be remembered that Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications technology giant, has been blacklisted by the US since 2019, as part of a global economic war for technological supremacy.
Four years later, what is happening?
A first result can be found in the Chinese domestic market.
While until 2019 the majority of mobile devices sold by Huawei, in China and in the rest of the world, used the Operating System Android by Google. Today in China there are at least thirty different versions of the operating system based on HarmonyOS, used in various mobile devices and approximately six hundred million users. Needless to say, a good portion of these could have been Android users!
As regards enterprise users, Huawei has developed EulerOS, a Linux distribution for servers.
A second signal can be read in the recent strategic alliance between UNIDO, i.e. United Nations Industrial Development Organization and Huawei, announced last June 15th in Hungary. The alliance aims to strengthen the development of Artificial Intelligence and the manufacturing industry (AIM-Global).
What can I say, perhaps even in this case the sanctions acted in reverse?
We'll see what happens next...
