In more my balls are larger than your balls news, China Unicom (think Verizon for the Chinese if you're ignorant to the whole foreign thing) insists it will not be partaking in Google's mobile technology since Google doesn't play well with archaic Communist entities.
Best of luck with this entire plan. Seriously.
China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd. won't use Google Inc.'s search function on its smartphones, even those using the U.S. search giant's own Android mobile operating system, because of Google's decision not to censor search results in China, according to a report Thursday.
The telecom company, which is currently working with handset manufacturers to develop a few Android-based phones for its subscribers, will leave the choice of an alternative search engine to those manufacturers, the Financial Times reported.
"We are willing to work with any company that abides by Chinese law. ... We don't have any cooperation with Google currently," Lu Yimin, president of Unicom, was quoted as saying in the report.
Google cares why?
Fuck China. I mean, don't mess with them but mostly and in a completely general sort of way fuck them.
