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.

I have a pre-order on the S500 Cloudmobile.

Though most people are unaware that Acer even makes Android phones.

I will be on my second when I get the S500, as my S100 Liquid is far too long in the tooth.
