Chinese smartphone giant Huawei’s next flagship Smartphone — the P40 and P40 Pro will be unveiled in March, but without Google Mobile services, according to Huawei Consumer Group CEO Richard Yu.

Since Huawei was blacklisted by the US government from using US tech, Huawei hasn’t been able to license Google’s software. Android 10 is open source, meaning Huawei is able to access it freely. Google Mobile Services, which is needed to access the Google Play Store, and apps like Maps, Uber and even Google Podcasts, require a license, which Huawei is barred from getting, CNET reported on Tuesday.


The upcoming P40 Pro will run on Android 10 OS without Google Mobile Services which means there will be no Google Play Store and no Google Maps.

Earlier in November, Huawei CEO Ren Zhengfei reiterated a warning to the US government that once the company’s Harmony operating system (OS) becomes operational, it may affect companies like Google as there will be no turning back from there.

In an interview given to CNN, Zhengfei had said Washington will eventually help competitors gain if it continues to place restrictions on who US companies can trade with.

The US Department of Commerce in May put Huawei on its Entity List over the so-called “national security concerns.”

Huawei said in a statement on May 20 that the US export control decision is in no one’s interest and will do significant economic harm to the American companies with which Huawei does business. (IANS)

Tomatoes are a staple in the Indian diet, be it a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian dish

Tomatoes are a staple in the Indian diet, be it a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian dish. It has to be a part of each meal in some form. As puree, paste, flavour, or diced into the dal. This tangy, sweet, and juicy ingredient was not always Indian. In fact, it did not even grow in India until the British sanctioned it. It is a product of colonization and has come a long way to become part of our everyday meals.

Originally, the tomato was considered poison. Its actual native is debatable. Some say it is European while others argue that is came from indigenous parts of Spain and Portugal. Either way, it is a plant species that is associated with the legendary Nightshade. It looks very similar to this poisonous plant that tomatoes were not even harvested for a long time, for fear of picking Nightshade instead. It was believed that Nightshade caused the blood to turn to acid and that tomatoes had the same property. Later research proved that the plant itself may be poisonous but the fruit is not.
