Google passes up on attending Nexus One event in China
The tension between Google and China have escalated to the point that the web searching giant has called off an event they were scheduled to attend in China surrounding the Nexus One. They were planning to attend a regional event to show off its first smartphone to software developers in Beijing, but they do plan on introducing the handset in Hong Kong and Taiwan next week. This last minute move clearly shows the fragile relationship between them since January when Google threatened to shut down its Chinese version of the site – which was prompted by problems of censorship and a hacking attempt that originated from within the country. An anonymous source close to Google said, "If Google did not have such an issue with the Chinese government, they would have conducted a similar event in China too." Analysts have said that this long lasting standoff would affect those mobile phone makers who had bet on the Android platform to increase sales in the world's largest mobile market.
