You misunderstand my question. Why was the choice of a blocksize of
1024 made?

I'm trying to understand how many devices, and why any other
manufacture would make, what seems to me, to be a completely insane

How long has Huawei been using a 1024 byte blocksize? And why? And
for how many devices? Essentially, I'm trying to figure out if this
was a Huawei-specific mistake.
