China: We Won't Limit Android

Fears that Android handsets might not find their way into China have been calmed.  Reuters is reporting today that China will not try to limit use of Android.  So long as the platform complies with Chinese law, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology spokesman Zhu Hongren said China would not place limits.

Two handsets were scheduled to be launched last week on China Unicom’s network but were delayed over the cyber-attack/Cold War between Google and China.  As of now, no announcements have come from Google, Motorola, or Samsung as to when we’ll see them.
