Tech Talk: Ep10 – How South African consumers are affected by U.S ban on Huawei

And so are companies like Nike, Apple

Huawei, the world’s second-biggest smartphone manufacturer based in China, has been suspended to do business with companies like Google, Intel, Broadcom, Xilinx and Qualcomm.

The news follows after U.S. Commerce Department added Huawei to its Entity List – meaning most of the companies mentioned above will need government approval to do any sort of business with Huawei.

In this episode, we discuss how South African consumers will be affected, especially those who already own Huawei smartphones. It does not end there, as this could open the door to retaliation against U.S. brands from hotels to sportswear e.g Nike, Apple and more.

We also catch up on the latest news:

– Telkom partnership with South African government to put fibre connection in Townships like Soweto

– WhatsApp launching ads on their platform in 2020

– Apple announces the return of iPod – the new iPod Touch
