    Google Nexus 7 Denied Entry Into Chinese Market


    It seems that the Chinese government is being a bit petty and anti-competitive. The new Google Nexus 7 tablet was denied from entering the Chinese market. Apparently, the Chinese government holds grudges and has a long memory. Back in 2010, Google refused to make the censorship changes to their services that the Chinese government wanted to impose in order for Google to stay in the country. Google chose the more difficult high ground by sticking to their principles on censorship, while other companies (like Microsoft) compromised their integrity in order to play in the Chinese sand box. It looks like Google's position is causing them some difficulty now.

    Additionally, it appears that the Chinese government likely has another ulterior motive for keeping the Google Nexus 7 out. It basically amounts to preferential treatment for its own companies. It will allow white-box Chinese companies to have less competitive pressure from the big-name player that Google would be in the market. Google was planning to sell over 7 Million units of Nexus 7 tablets this year, but some of that was supposed to be in the Chinese market. Unfortunately, this will put a dent in those plans. Just how much is yet to be determined.

    It's going to take a while for the Chinese market to settle out and become accessible. Even stores like Best Buy don't exist in their western forms over there. It's the new Wild West

    I'm sure there already are some, but there is a large enough middle and upper-middle class there now, as well as tech-savvy twenty-somethings, who want the real tech from known companies. Again, it will take time but there will be a push for name brand gear.

    some major brands have made it into the china marketplace Nike and Apple are leading the pack but I'm sure others will join them shortly.

    There's already a knockoff of the iPhone 5 available in China, and Apple hasn't even introduced it yet.

    screw China. It already baffles me how our government blows them, but I can't get a damn cigar from Cuba... Good for Google for actually having principles
