A Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology spokesperson has today delivered a statement affirming China's willingness to allow Android devices to operate within the country without restriction so long as they adhere to the nation's laws. This means that whatever China's response to Google no longer obeying its censorship edicts may be, it won't be to disallow Android -- which kind of makes sense considering the growing roster of OPhones out there, all running a remixed version of the dessert-loving mobile OS. Then again, Google's latest power play was to hold back Android handsets from entering China, so we're not entirely sure how much the Mountain View outfit cares about the Middle Kingdom's apparent benevolence.
