As you know the Acer CloudMobile is using Alibaba’s operating system Aliyun instead of Google Android. The change was made last-minute. So why did Acer do it? Supposedly Google threatened to cancel Acer’s license to use the Android operating system.

The Acer CloudMobile has swapped from Google Android to Alibaba’s Aliyun OS. The dual-core CloudMobile is expected to be released in China tomorrow for ¥2,999 (approximately $474). This makes it the most expensive phone in the country. Acer chose the cloud-based Aliyun OS for Chinese customers because of its ease, especially for first-time smartphone users. Acer plans to explore Aliyun for follow-up devices as well. One more will be released next month and more will arrive in 2013.
