Chip makers not dealing with Huawei is a non-issue as Huawei make their own
Could you still sideload Google services like you have to on a China ROM anyway?
Galaxy Note 10 Pro, 20 May 2019Good opportunity for non-USA mobile companies come up with a new OS. We are not here to buy us... moreThey already have. Ever heard of /e/ Foundations? Google search /e/ OS and you'll see a very ambitious yet cool project.
donald t., 20 May 2019we need new alternative to replace ios/lagdroid monopoly. oligopoly*
those who say's here that we will have 3rd os for phones i can tell its not impossible to come but it won't work there is a lot who tried to fit in this world but they all fails. the only successful os are symbian, android and ios but symbian is discontinued now so only android and ios nothing more followed. Us developer of apps and games we love to develop for android and ios. we are millions so if there would be another os to come then maybe 10,000 developers will try and then if they would be bored and no money making of our apps in there then we will stop.

Life is so much simpler during the early day... moreLife is so much *simpler* with smartphones today: no newspapers, no magazines, no going to the movie theatre or waiting for movies to be released on TV, no CDs, no watch, no need to start up your computer in many cases ...etc.
nobody will trust google anymore. playstore can be replaced in few months. if huawei do not take 30% from developers like google does, most will publish on its store. see epic games

I don't know of a single map app that has all the features that Google maps offers.
Apple os is the biggest beneficiary.
Microsoft once want to build their offices in India for development purposes but Bill gatea was forcely step off by the government.
Amercan companies are controlled by USA government.

Apple is declining f... more100% this is shity way of protecting an inefficient corporation grown too big and some darling investors bought these stocks at peak, good way to leverage political pressure to reverse fortunes of trillion dollars corporations..
People just can't live without smartphones nowadays. It was so much simpler during the early days. Guess that's how technology revolves around us. Now we are glued and become slaves to our phones. If you really want a phone, just stick to an old symbian phone will do. Just a simple basic functions. No worries with spyware, hacks and viruses. It can probably survive a bomb blast. Lol.
Anonymous, 20 May 2019So you're admitting these companies do spy for the CCP or is China suddenly a benevolent dicta... moreEveryone is spying each other, where is the question of benevolence! But USA somehow thinks that they only have the RIGHT spy on others and others only have RESPONSIBILITIES to surrender to USA!! Not going to last long! Glad this has happened, I am sure Google and Apple will be challenged with alternative OS..
Good opportunity for non-USA mobile companies come up with a new OS. We are not here to buy useless ridiculously expensive Apple Boy iPhones so that Apple stocks can go up!! USA behaving like erstwhile USSR and China is becoming more competitive (of course they have their own rule which is restricted to China, never impose on other countries like USA). Not that I like China or USA but USA is becoming anti-competitive far too long!
