China gets desperate for Android

Date: 10/29/2008 2:53:05 PM

Plans are in motion for the much anticipated launch of an Android device for China between February and March 2009, but unlike the US launch of the T-Mobile G1 handset, China Mobile has decided not to work with Taiwanese PDA manufacturer HTC and has instead opted for working with Lenovo Mobile to release its first Google powered phone.

US-ordered G1’s have been “pouring into China” illegally since it was released in the US on October 26 through T-Mobile, reports Pacific Epoch, citing the Chinese IT site DoNews.

The handsets are going for a lofty 3,999 remminbi ($584) in Bejing’s Zhongguancun, or consumer electronics shopping area, plus another 500 remminbi ($73) to unlock the phone. Will the G1 go the way of the iPhones in China? Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) has openly admitted it struggled with the gray market for the handsets. In February, there were some 1.4 million iPhones that hadn’t been activated on their respective networks--with China and India’s gray markets supposedly sucking them all up.
