Announced at the Google I/O last June 2014, and launched in September with the presentation of the first devices in the India, Android One stood as the perfect solution to carry the experience of an Android stock devices of lower ranges which would begin to be sold in emerging markets.
But the months have passed, and the CCS Insight research firm says that you despite the initial enthusiasm for the project, in the last half-year sales of these devices they have failed to pick up in countries where is marketed India, doing that many ask to what extent is this program fulfilling the expectations of Google.
Although initially those who bet on this platform were manufacturers like Micromax, Karbonn or Spice, expected that little by little other names with much more weight such as Acer, Asus and HTC join the program by using Android One their lower ranges, something that finally does not seem to be happening.
And the biggest problem seems to be that getting a few devices with less than 100 euros It is not something out of the ordinary to get do highlight Android One, since other manufacturers have also managed to add to that strip with proposals that use both the full Android and other operating systems such as Windows Phone.
So it can is you speak of failure with Android One? Thus all It depends on the concept with which you want to define to this platform, because although the of a Nexus low cost doesn’t seem to be having much success, CCS Insight also notes that this platform is only a piece more in trying to Google to provide access to the network to emerging countries, to talk about its success or failure would see just how running other programs like Project Loon.
