Chinese fear Google domination

Written by Nick Farrell



Imperialists under the beds

The research arm of China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has warned that the evil imperialist Google has too much control over the smartphone market.

In a report the Ministry added that China had the ability to create its own mobile operating system which could free it from dependence on Android. The report said that while the Android system is open source, the core technology and technology roadmap is strictly controlled by Google.

It said that Google had discriminated against some Chinese companies developing their operating systems by delaying the sharing of codes. The search engine used commercial agreements to restrain the business development of mobile devices of these companies, it added.

Analysts warned that the white paper, which lauded Chinese companies such as Baidu, Alibaba Group and Huawei Technologies for creating their own systems, could be a signal to the industry that regulations against Android are on the horizon.
