The announcement has been made by TomTom, the Dutch company that has signed an agreement with Huawei, to supply its maps and navigation services on its mobiles. The signing of this agreement would have been a long time ago, but it was not until this Friday when it was made public.
With the use of the open-source version of Android, Huawei mobiles were left without the support of Google Maps, one of the most popular services among smartphone users.
The fact that this agreement has been signed some time ago raises suspicions that this new navigation system could be materialized in March, with the presentation of the Huawei P40.
We will still have to wait for the details of this alliance that allows, once again, Huawei to trick the consequences of Trump’s veto. The race to increase the catalog of applications on its platform has been one of Huawei’s priority objectives. Currently, Huawei’s application gallery has a total of 55,000 applications, a much higher number than the 11,000 it had last summer.
Despite everything, it is very far, from at least equal, the three million apps that make up the Play Store catalog.
