A lot of people seem to think that Android isn't a big priority for Google, believing that any mobile smartphone platform is just as important to Google as Android. We obviously think different and this bit of news looks like Google is fully invested and behind the Android project.
Google has a dedicated team in Taiwan to look after Android and help it grow. This is crucial because of the partners that Google has in Taiwan. Namely, HTC (current maker of the G1 and HTC Magic) and to a lesser extent Acer and ASUS (two computer companies). This makes tons of sense because the biggest hardware supporters of Android are currently located in Taiwan/Asia and Google needs to work with them in order to build better devices.
