News: Is Android's Google Play store at risk? (Huawei)
i have just seen a news report pushed on Android's new service, saying that Reuter's report that Google has blocked Huawei from its services (although open-source components can still be used).
Aparrently this will impact availability of Google Play Store on new Huawei devices - It is not yet clear what impact this will have on existing devices.

Will my Huawei be bricked by Google?
If this report is true, is there any risk that I would be unable to use Google Play Apps that I have already purchased - or just prevented from acquiring updates or using it on new devices?

Note: news report I saw suggested that this action was primarily because of Huawei being placed on an American blacklist, rather than a specific decision by Google - implying that simply switching to an alternative American supplier of Apps might not help.

(I was intending to cut and paste a link to the TNW news report, but Android says that site has a problem with its security certificate).
Update: BBC news report indicates existing devices are [currently] unaffected.
