Google Threatened Acer with Banishment from Android

Spy Handler (822350) writes | more than 2 years ago

Android 1

Spy Handler writes "In a Microsoft-esque move, Google threatened Acer with banishment from Android if it went ahead with its new cellphone project with Alibaba (China's version of Amazon), using an OS called Aliyun. Acer has remained silent on the issue, but Alibaba reports that they received notification from Google, stating "if the new product launch with Aliyun went ahead, Google would terminate Android product cooperation and related technical authorization with Acer." Possible reason for Google's upset is that the Aliyun OS, which is not Android, can run Android apps as well as its own."

is Google bipolar? (0)

After beating back Oracle's java lawsuit they go and pull this shit move because Alibaba uses dalvik... which is open source. Nevermind Motorola suing over standards essential, FRAND patents while Google's lawyers ask Congress to eminent domain Apple's patents because they're popular.
