Sony Ericsson:no plan to delay Android phone in China
TOKYO (Reuters) - Sony Ericsson, a cellphone joint venture between Sony Corp and Ericsson, has no plans to delay the launch of a phone that runs Google Inc's Android operating system in China, the company's chief executive said on Thursday.
Google this week postponed the launch in China of two mobile phones which use the Android platform, in the first sign its business in the country is starting to be affected by a dispute over hacking and censorship.
The manufacturers of those telephones, which were scheduled for launch in China on Wednesday, are Motorola and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd.
Sony Ericsson Chief Executive Bert Nordberg said at a news conference in Tokyo that the firm plans to launch its Android phone, dubbed X10, in China and the rest of the world this spring.
