Google Deep Sixes Android Phone Launch In China

If you were wondering if Google was serious about pulling out of China, this might be the first hint that they are. According to The Globe And Mail the launch of two Android phones in China has been postponed:

One person briefed on Google’s decision said it was linked to the company’s threat that it will shut its Chinese-based search engine if restrictions aren’t eased.

The company concluded it would “not be a good experience” for consumers to receive a phone right now with its applications, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the issue.

Google really seems intent on proving that they aren’t joking when they say that they want things to change when it comes to their dealings with China or they’re leaving the country.  It will be interesting to see how China responds to this as I can’t imagine them being happy about this news.
