We have been hearing about Google’s Android Silver program for a while now, the program is said to include high end Android smartphones from a range of manufacturers, and the device are rumored to come with stock Android like Google’s Nexus devices.
Now according to a recent report, the Android Silver program has apparently been out on hold, the news comes in a report from The Information, who have said that the project stalled in July.
The Android silver program apparently stalled, when Nikesh Arora, who was one of the chief architects in the program left Google, and there have been reports of Google employees questioning whether the program would be a success.
There are also reports that Google’s manufacturing partners and the mobile carriers have both had a mixed reaction to Android Silver, which could be another reason why the project has been put on hold.
Obviously the mobile carriers and smartphone makers would prefer to release devices that come with their own customizations, like they do at the moment, rather than releasing high end devices that come with stock Android.
As soon as we get some more details on exactly what has happened to Google’s Android Silver program, we will let you guys know.
