Amazon Japan halts direct sales of Huawei devices

E-tailer still allows third-party vendors to sell Chinese company's products

Amazon Japan has stopped direct sales of all Huawei smartphones, tablets and PCs.

TOKYO -- Amazon Japan has stopped selling Huawei Technologies products through its online store, becoming the latest company to recoil from the Chinese telecom equipment maker after it was blacklisted by the U.S.

The American e-commerce giant's Japanese unit is still allowing third-party vendors to sell Huawei devices on its marketplace, but the decision is likely to steer more consumers away from the brand.
