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 wasn't google who made that story public. [...]
That shows Acer is driven by less chinese business culture. Just a very poor western babarian business style to drag your weakness, your loses into the public.

It wasn't Acer who made the story public either. It was Alibaba who went to the press, forcing Google to react. I don't see Acer complaining loudly anywhere.
