Report: China Won't Ban Google Android
January 28, 2010 6:28 AM
Even though the Chinese government and Google aren't seeing eye-to-eye, Google's Android system won't be kicked out of China
The Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced it will allow Google to promote its Android mobile platform in China, despite a current ongoing Internet privacy matter between the U.S. tech company and the restrictive Chinese government.
Google, which opened a headquarters and began promoting in China after Microsoft and Yahoo, said it is still mulling a decision to close down its Chinese Google office and the Google.cn web site.
The Chinese government has rarely denied censoring internet material its citizens receive and share, but fired back and accused the United States
government of Web censorship and subversion
President Barack Obama's administration has had difficulty working with the Chinese government to help promote human rights and Internet freedom -- it's unlikely the matter will be resolved any time soon, political analysts noted, saying both sides still have to engage in more dialogue.
The three major Chinese wireless providers in the country, which are all state-operated, have received permission from the government to promote and sell Android devices.
"As long as it complies with Chinese laws and regulations, and as long as it has good cooperation with operators...
their use of the system won't be limited
," according to the MIIT.
China's stance on Android is extremely important for Google and phone manufacturers that are utilizing the open source mobile platform. For example, Motorola plans to open the SHOP4APPS, a Chinese-based Android app store, which will be available by mid-February.
Sony Ericsson also won't delay the launch of an Android smartphone this spring, despite tensions between the United States, China and Google.
"Well, we didn't have anyone in line that got shot waiting for our system." -- Nintendo of America Vice President Perrin Kaplan
