Huawei is offering generous revenue splits to bring developers onto its AppGallery store

Huawei has had a very obvious problem since the 2019 trade ban took effect, preventing them from using Google’s apps and services. Yes, losing Gmail and YouTube hurts, but it completely blocks access to millions of other Android apps on Huawei devices. To counter that, Huawei has been pushing their own AppGallery store where Huawei […]

Huawei says it may ‘never’ return to using Google apps on its phones, even if the ban is lifted

Huawei inks a crucial deal with TomTom for navigation to replace Google Maps
