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.

Alibaba is the bystander here. Acer was breaking their OHA contractual obligations. Simple as that.
Google said that they have to adhere to the contract or the contract is terminated.

All tehy are saying is that Allyun is not compatible and that contradicts the OHA contract. Acer is free to go all Amazon.
