Acer Cancels Aliyun Smartphone Release In China


Acer has cancelled the release of a new smartphone based on the Aliyun operating system in China, after receiving pressure from Google.

Acer planned to hold a joint press conference with Alibaba Group in Shanghai on September 13 to debut CloudMobile A800 smartphone, which is based on the Alibaba-developed Aliyun operating system. However, the company canceled the conference and according to Alibaba, the cancellation was due to pressure from Google. Acer did not confirm or deny the claim.

"Regarding the abrupt cancellation of yesterday's press conference with Alibaba in China, Acer expresses deep regret and sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience caused to our media friends," Acer said in a statement. "Acer will continue working with its strategic partners in China to create improved product and service offerings, and looks forward to sharing the results of our win-win developments in the near future," the company added.

Although Acer is not among leading vendors of Android smartphones, the company has reportedly received a notification from Google that Google would likely cancel cooperation with Acer on the development of Android smartphones and related licensing.

The CloudMobile A800 is powered by a Qualcomm S4 MSM8260A 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM and a 4.3-inch 1280 by 720-pixel touch screen.

China-based K-Touch and Haier have already released phones based running the Aliyun OS.
