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.

You should inform Google that they should be kicking out at least 3 OHA members this week then.

Haier is an OHA member and produces both Aliyun and Android phones. Lenovo is an OHA member and has produced both oPhone and Android phones. And Acer. Satisfied?
