Google Delaying Launch of Two Android Phones in China Due To Censorship Row

Whoa, the dispute between China and Google just got even more messy, with Google being forced to delay the launch of two Android phones from Motorola and Samsung on the China Unicom carrier.

The launch was initially slated for tomorrow, but with Google announcing last week they'd no longer be censoring search results in China—and then being attacked by Chinese hackers—it's not at all surprising. There's no word on what exactly will make Google go ahead with the launch as planned, but I'm willing to bet my last dollar that the main stipulation is for China to allow Google to continue with its plight against censorship.
