Google will bring back Android One platform starting in India Last year, Google launched its Android One platform to bring affordable handsets to the developing world but the program quickly disappeared.
Even Google admitted that Android One had "not delivered to expectations" with Google's own Rajan Anandan also confirming that "we had a few hiccups."

Android One had quite a few partners in the developing world, all of which were aiming to create higher volume devices with standardized specs and all running on a stock or near stock Android.

In the coming weeks, Google will 'reboot' the program, starting in India. Google's ultimate goal is to sell handsets for well under $100 in most areas, and in India the "sweet spot" is 'between Rs.2,000 ($31) and Rs.3,000 ($47).'
