"If they put a company on the entity list that means no US company or manufacturer can work with that company. They're banned from working with that company. So Huawei being on that list now makes it impossible for US-based companies and not just US-based companies, but companies who have subsidiaries even around the world, US companies who have subsidiaries around the world can also not work with Huawei anymore."

"You know , pushing Huawei out from using US products and US manufacturers is going to force them to develop something of their own. They're already in the cheap phone market so this is going to actually make it probably better for them, that they have something in house that could work. They could actually make phones even cheaper and sell them in other markets."
Huawei could quickly lose its grip on the No. 2 ranking in worldwide cellphone sales after Google announced it would comply with U.S. government restrictions meant to punish the Chinese tech powerhouse.
The Trump administration's move, which effectively bars U.S. firms from selling components and software to Huawei, ups the ante in a trade war between Washington and Beijing that partly reflects a struggle for global economic and technological dominance.
Google said it would continue to support existing Huawei smartphones but future devices will not have its flagship apps and services, including maps, Gmail and search. Only basic services would be available for future versions of the Android operating system on Huawei's smartphones.
Though the U.S. Commerce Department grants exceptions, the ban announced last week on all purchases of U.S. technology is thus apt to hurt Huawei, analysts say.
San Francisco State University economics professor Anoshua Chaudhuri says Huawei could be forced to develop their own components to replace U.S, technology. That, she says, could help Huawei in the long run.
