Convincing people that you aren't secretly spying on them must be tough if you happen to be the world's second largest provider of telecommunications equipment – Huawei. Several weeks ago, the company was accused of using its hardware for collecting information for the needs of the Chinese government. Of course, Huawei denied the allegations, but that surely wasn't enough to calm people down...

Sadly, the color of justice is green. So that doesn't always hold true.

Software code can be re-flashed quietly via hardware backdoors and the sort of things you can do with virtual machines would make it all but impossible to trace all sorts of naughty things. Not worth the risk. Remember, Huawei has a very unique structure and close affiliations with the China military.

I'd love to see their source code. One thing that worries me about their new processors is that they wont be easy on the dev community and therefore see no support. Would be a shame...
