Alibaba Is Spinning Off A Team To Focus Exclusively On Aliyun

Posted Sep 21, 2012

Alibaba Group is building their own mobile operating system called Aliyun and it is powering a device called the Acer CloudMobile, which means that the Chinese e-commerce company has already hit the ground running.  Alibaba is going to be spinning off a team to focus exclusively on the Aliyun operating system.  Google is not too happy with Aliyun because they claim it uses certain aspects built into Google Android.  Alibaba is also investing $200 million into the Aliyun spin-off to be as strong as Android in China.
