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.

Member since:

Google says this is against the OHA, but there are at least 2 other OHA members doing exactly the same thing (Haier with Aliyun and Lenovo with oPhone). Therefore, no, I do not find Google more credible, and no, I will not assume they are being the more truthful party in this case.
