That’s what PadHz is claiming, based on a report from the “Taiwan Economic Times” — the original source of which I cannot find [Google Translate].
Apparently this is Google’s reaction to Microsoft dropping its Windows 8.1 device licensing fee to US$15.
I don’t know that this will break many hearts. It’s interesting to see Google push around a partner like Asus, though.
What’s next? Google somehow forbidding the emulation of Android on Windows desktops and devices?
