A Chinese government white paper has said China is "too dependent on Android," and accused Google (GOOG) of discriminating against some Chinese OS developers by delaying code sharing, as well as trying to limit their ability to do business. While the paper made no recommendations, analysts see it as an indication that China could be set to impose regulations on Android.

    The Chinese government imposing regulations on an open architecture because they are not getting free access to the code quick enough seems like a stupid complaint. What are their options for smart phone OSs? Maybe should work on their silly alphabet more and produce something original in the arena of new ideas instead of stealing other people's content.
    1.6 billion people should have something more to contribute to mankind other then noodles and gun powder. Maybe they should look to the Arabs. They also have contributed much to civilization as Obama likes to tout.

    For the past 15+ years Cn has been trying to develop its own OS so it was not too dependant on Microsoft. Should have tried a bit harder! ...

    If you substituted Apple for Google in the headline, Apple stock would go down 10 points. Google goes up. FUS.

    China has not come far enough. Don't blame the west. The west did nothing to china. It has been 4000 thousand years not a 100 for China to come around. It is an alarming worldwide trend. Too much central government planning. Too much interference and loss of individual freedom. It is not just restricted to China. It is a world wide trend that unfortunately will not end well for mankind.
