"If Google did not have such an issue with the Chinese government, they would have conducted a similar event in China too," said a source close to the company.

Back in January, Google threatened China to shut down, citing censorship problems and a hacking attack from within the country. Shortly after the threat, Google delayed the launch of two Android mobile phones in China.

Analysts have said that a conflict between Google and the Chinese government could hurt Android mobile phone makers that wish to increase their sales in the world's biggest mobile market.
