Google has delayed the launch of its new mobile phone in China amid a diplomatic row with Beijing over censorship laws.

The decision is a result of Google’s threat to pull out of China if restrictions are not lifted, said a person briefed on the move.

The company has decided it would ‘not be a good experience’ for consumers to receive a phone right now with its applications, said the person, who spoke anonymously.

Marsha Wang, a spokeswoman for Google Inc., however, only said today’s planned ceremony with local carrier China Unicom Ltd. was postponed.

She did not give a reason or say when the launch might be rescheduled.
