Google will drop it's name by doing this Spice & Karbonn r shittt , micromax is still ok. GOOGLE should go for this big companies
Smuti, 25 Jun 2014Samsung, Sony and LG don't use that stupid One moniker. They aren't allowed to :P
vijay, 25 Jun 2014Google should have implemented this programme earlier..would have stopped crap 3.5" displ... moreNot really.. System takes time to mature, although companies are trying very hard to bring latest features in reality what they planned vs what market want could be very different.
At first, I also thought about that but there might several things to consider:
1. Country Policy. China phone makers is an obvious good choice, but Sundar didn't pick them maybe because of the strict country policies. While India doesn't really strict the OS features or data.
2. Price. China vs India phones relatively have similar price. Japan and Korea phones are out of question, because of pricey.
3. Market. India has a large market for Android too, not as large as China but it's a good place to test the project because of reason 1, 2, and 3.
What the others think?
I hope top brands would also jump to this system for entry level devices not just their flagship phones..
because Sundar Pichai is indian.. he supports indian mobile... nice strategy
I would like to get a micromax Android, but only if they use Qualcomm chipsets. I won't go for mediatek, instead wait for any Qualcomm snapdragon 410 enabled Android
meyou, 25 Jun 2014Why many use One? But Google use "one" for budget phone.The original Google One by HTC (the G1) was not a budget phone, far from it.
MHanz, 25 Jun 2014Doubtful, money talks. The Chinese have a lot of vested interested in Android based devices. T... moreGoogle left PRC 4 years ago, and there is no money which can buy re-entering after Snowden. Chinese OEMs use Android without Google services [except for export] so called AOSP or their own Android variant.
HTC One, OnePlus One, Android One, Xbox One etc.
Where is the imagination?
This might be the best move for Google, but will be even better for Micromax
