Google There's a bit of a story going on between Google, Acer, and Alibaba, a Chinese mobile operating system vendor. Acer wanted to ship a device with Alibaba's operating system, but Google asked them not to, and Acer complied. The reason is that Acer is a member of the Open Handset Alliance, which prohibits the promotion of non-standard Android implementations - exactly what Alibaba is shipping. On top of that, Alibaba's application store hosts pirated Android applications, including ones from Google.

Yes, it is a fork of Android. Not just "Linux + HTML5".

See this: http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/09/15/aliyun-app-store-confirmed-...

If it wasn't a fork of Android then how the heck can it run Android apps? Also, it's hosting a load of pirated apps, Googles included. (which I doubt they're non too happy about)
