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.

Code written for Davlik won't run on a Java JVM. There fore making it incompatible Java.


It will if the APIs are available.

Don't confuse Java the language with Java the virtual machine.

It was an unfortunate decision, that Sun's marketing decided to call both the same name. At least in .NET and Android, language and VM have different names.
