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.

It's odd that you are drawing absurd conclusions but don't know the facts.

Everyone knew that Acer was releasing an Aliyun phone. And then it was mysteriously canceled at the last minute. Alibaba pointing the finger didn't implicate Acer. It forced Google to admit that it was true.
