Is the Sino-Google Inc (GOOG) Cold War Heating Up?

Page 1 of 2

A white paper produced by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology implicated Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) as a roadblock in the development of homegrown mobile operating systems, Reuters reported.

The white paper, which was posted on the Internet last Friday and released to the Chinese media today, said: “Our country’s mobile operating system research and development is too dependent on Android … While the Android system is open source, the core technology and technology road map is strictly controlled by Google.”

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)The paper goes further, saying that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has put off the sharing of software code with some Chinese companies that are working on their own operating systems.

The Ministry may have been inspired by the incident last fall when Google allegedly threatened Taiwanese company Acer with the cancelling of its Android license if it continued to develop its A800 smartphone for use with the Aliyun OS. Aliyun is an Android derivative developed by the mainland Chinese company Alibaba.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has found China to be a problematic place to do business. In 2010, after facing up to the fact it had been acquiescing to the Chinese government’s Big Brother approach to communications control, it pledged to stop censoring

That decision didn’t sit well with the authorities, and now when users type in unacceptable search queries, they are met with error messages, such as “This webpage is not available.”

But Android has been hugely successful in China. The largest Chinese phone makers, Huawei and ZTE, as well as makers of the least expensive white-label smartphones, all use Android as their operating systems.
