Google Android Test Center in Taiwan?

Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs seems to have quite an interest in Google Android. The Department of Industrial Technology is trying to get Google to set up an Android certification center in Taiwan to speed up development of Android for the mouth watering masses. According to Wen-jen Ho, director of Multimedia Technologies Laboratory:

The OHA, while waiting for High Tech Computer (HTC) to roll out its first Linux smartphone based on the Android platform, has not yet decided on how to carry out the certification process for Android-based mobile devices, Ho noted.

Android devices are expected to be manufactured in Taiwan and China, but with all the political problems concerning China and Taiwan you can almost bet that this move by the Taiwanese Government is a way to one up China. But hey, what do we care? If it means cheaper phones for us, we’re all for it!
