Google controls too much of China’s smartphone sector: ministry


This is the official statement of the ministry who has authored a white paper as reported by Reuter. The paper focuses on the Google’s control over China’s smart-phone by its android OS. “Our country’s mobile operating system research and development is too dependent on Android,” the paper, posted online on Friday but carried by local media on Tuesday, said.”While the Android system is open source, the core technology and technology road-map is strictly controlled by Google.”

They also blamed Google for discriminating against some Chinese companies.As per the paper,Google uses commercial restraints to the business development of mobile devices of these companies.

Many are seeing this as a sign of putting  regulations on Android for the benefit of domestic companies.Though many Chinese companies like ZTE,Huawei uses Android platform for the mobiles.Is China planning to build new OS to take on Android or is it just to tell the world that only Chinese can control China.

What do you think on the Chinese stand?
