Google cancels the Chinese launch of two new Android handsets

Updated 4 years ago

Google’s Android mobile platform is now officially caught in the crossfire in the major row between Google and the Chinese government. Google played its Android card by announcing Tuesday morning that it is postponing the January 20th launch of two new Google Experience handsets with China Unicom. Google reportedly felt it was “irresponsible” to release the two offerings from Motorola and Samsung when its future in China is on such tenuous ground. Left sitting on the sidelines and remaining silent are China Unicom, Motorola, and Samsung, all of whom have declined to comment on the matter.
