China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has stated that Google has too much cotnrol within its smartphone industry with Android and is discriminating against local rivals. In its recent white paper they said that the country had the ability to craft its own mobile OS if it wanted to. In the document they said: "While the Android system is open source, the core technology and technology roadmap is strictly controlled by Google."

According to them Google has apparently delayed sharing source code with Chinese companies that are developing their own operating systems, they then went on to praise Baidu Inc, Alibaba Group and Huawei Technologies for creating their own systems.
