Acer CloudMobile To Use Alibaba’s Aliyun Instead Of Google Android

Posted Sep 13, 2012

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.
