Google Cancels Phone Program in China
Google unilaterally canceled the Google phone (Gphone) development program with China Unicom, signaling a significant adjustment of its development strategy for mobile products in China.
On January 14 China Unicom was not authorized to use Google's Logo and its applications in an internal announcement, and the WCDMA Google Phone release conference originally scheduled on January 20 was canceled, according to a source familiar with the Gphone development program. Weekly meetings between Google, China Unicom, Samsung and Motorola have been canceled as of last week.
