HUAWEI Bluetooth + WiFi + SD + Android Q Rights Restored!

Just as quickly and quietly as HUAWEI lost their Bluetooth, WiFi and SD alliance memberships, they were restored!

They were also added back to the Android Q Beta program! Seriously, what’s going on???

Has HUAWEI Turned The Tide?

These sudden, unexpected changes must be a welcomed reprieve for HUAWEI. And the PR value cannot be understated.

Yet there is no clarity about why the WiFi Alliance, the SD Association and the Bluetooth SIG changed their minds about being subject to the Trump ban.

Obviously, they would not have done this without some sort of dispensation or waiver by the Trump Administration. This could be an olive branch to HUAWEI, in return for some concessions from the Chinese government.
