Google is very busy slamming the door in the face of China’s authorities, says business analyst Paul Denlinger in The Guardian.
Paul Denlinger, an internet consultant specialising in the Chinese market, said: “I think what they want to do is keep the door open for being able to come back into China at some later date.
“Going out in a blaze of glory might make some people happy in the US and other parts of the world, but it would slam the door on China.”
But Denlinger said that, in the shorter term, it “looks very bad” for Google’s future in China.
Earlier he also made clear Google needs a license for a mapping service, if its mobile applications ever want to take off in the largest mobile market in the world.
