Chinese mobile phones were long ago removed and the “Three ITO” of bad phones, poorly constructed and were crude copies of the most desired on the market. But this week the ghosts around the Chinese mobile came back with the withdrawal of the sale on Amazon of the Chinese mobile BLU, who now return to the store.

YouTube Network and Google Play Music will be merged to create a new service

Amazon removed the BLU mobile phones from its store after being aware of the serious fact that these phones had a malware installed factory that collected data from users, who were sent to a company in the Asian country, something that is obviously not tolerable in a New mobile.

BLU Chinese mobile phones return after a “false alarm”

It has been through a tweet as the Chinese company has announced that its phones are re-sold on Amazon after a “false alarm. ” Obviously it is a way of removing iron to a rather serious problem of privacy for the users of these mobiles. Specifically the  Blu R1 HD, which had been sold in the Jeff Bezos store with pre-installed malware, which collected data from users as diverse as browsing history, call logs, text messages, IMEI, IMSI, Wifi, MAC address and a list of installed applications.

Hey BLU fans! After a false alarm, BLU devices are now back up for sale on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=blu%20phones&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ablu%20phones  

All information that was collected thanks to the firmware and other software developed by the Shanghai Adups Technology Co. Well, it seems that the main change for the Chinese mobile BLU has returned to the Amazon store is that they have committed to change by Complete this aspect of their mobiles. In fact, they will stop updating through OTA through this Chinese company, ensuring that they will bypass the updates using Adups OTA to adopt the Google Drops.

However, the BLU phones come back to Amazon after removing this software in future units and updates, but the question that remains of this whole problem is the following, did BLU know the practices Shanghai Adups Technology? Which would be quite serious, or simply this company leaked the malicious software to collect user information for their own benefit. In any case, this is a major setback for BLU, one of the most important emerging Chinese manufacturers, and that with this “affair” could have put in doubt its credibility in the market, at least for a while.
