Trump’s miscalculation again? Huawei officially launched a counterattack, and Google is going to suffer this time

On September 30, the global Daily reported a news report about Reuters that a person familiar with the matter disclosed to Reuters that Google’s Android system may be under antitrust investigation in China. The main content of the investigation is that Android makes use of its dominant position in the mobile operating system to stifle its rivals and even launch unfair price competition. If the investigation is true, Google will face antitrust charges. < p > < p > according to Reuters, the person familiar with the matter told Reuters that the antitrust investigation launched against Google’s Android system was initiated by Huawei in 2019. If it really has something to do with Huawei, then Huawei is officially launching a counterattack against Google. Trump certainly did not expect Huawei to do so this time. It seems that trump has failed again this time. However, a decision on whether Google’s Android system is suspected of monopoly will be made in October this year. It is conceivable that once the antitrust investigation is established, Google may receive a huge fine. < p > < p > for the Reuters report, the news agency also commented that if Google’s antitrust investigation is established, it will become the largest antitrust case after the former Microsoft antitrust case. Maybe we don’t know what the former Microsoft antitrust case really means? < / P > < p > here’s a brief summary. From 2000 to 2004, several cities, including California in the United States, as well as South Korea, Japan and the European Union, have launched anti-monopoly charges and investigations against Microsoft all over the world. < / P > < p > according to the relevant information available on the Internet, Microsoft has paid a fine and settlement fee of $62 million in South Korea. In the previous EU antitrust investigation, Microsoft paid a fine of $665 million. This does not include the fines imposed on Microsoft for launching antitrust investigations in Japan and other cities in the United States. Moreover, this is an anti-monopoly case that occurred 20 years ago. If it is calculated at present value, it will cost US $6-10 billion. < / P > < p > in July 2018, the EU’s anti-monopoly lawsuit against Microsoft has finally come to an end. Microsoft was fined 1.64 billion euro, equivalent to 2 billion US dollars at that time. Google really had money, and the European Union’s fines were all $1 billion. < / P > < p > < p > if what is said by Bloomberg is true, then how many billion dollars will Google be fined for antitrust? Five billion dollars? Eight billion dollars? Or 10 billion dollars? < / P > < p > since May 2019, trump has launched various kinds of encirclement and interception on Chinese companies, including Huawei, for various reasons. And Trump’s ultimate goal is not to get part of the fine, but to completely kill companies that surpass American technology in the cradle. < / P > < p > it can be imagined that companies like Huawei and ZTE are leading the world only in a part of technology. They do not have any monopoly pricing or profit manipulation behavior in the world, but they also suffer from unfair treatment. < / P > < p > if the Reuters report on people familiar with the matter is true, once China officially launches an anti-monopoly investigation into Google’s Android system, and India and the United States have already started, then Google is likely to set off a storm previously experienced by Microsoft in the world. < / P > < p > in fact, global high-tech companies like Google, because of their absolute dominant position, often use their advantages to kidnap users, or even arbitrarily set monopoly prices, while users have no choice at all. In 2018, Google was also fined $5.06 billion in the EU’s antitrust investigation. < / P > < p > for a long time, in the global anti-monopoly investigation, the European Union has the most prominent reputation. Even high-tech companies in the United States are constantly falling in the EU. This time, it is time for Google to fall into a trap in China! New product launch
