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.

AGAIN, this is you taking Google at their word. OHA has to comply with compatibility testing when submitting something they intend to be called Android. There is ZERO evidence that OHA members cannot work on competing OSSes that utilize code that's a part of Android or non-Android code that emulates it. In fact, there are TWO HUGE GLARING examples of just the opposite being true.
