Aliyun, the chinese Android

The Chinese web and eCommerce giant Alibaba has developped, for one year, its own Linux-based mobile operating system (OS) called Aliyun. It hopes to become the “Android of China“. It wants to offer an alternative to its builders countries and argues that user experience promised by Google is not as good as in China where many services giant are restricted by the government (search, maps and even Gmail).

A report from Sohu IT cited Alibaba Group’s chief strategy officer Zeng Ming as saying the Aliyun OS is gaining traction among mobile phonemakers. “We want to be the Android of China and we have quite a lot of new partners in line,” he said.

This new OS, Aliyun, based on Linux, will offers an emulator to run Android applications without trouble. Even if the Android company Google contends is its own Linux-based mobile operating system, Aliyun should not be dubbed as a variant of Android.

 

 

Furthermore, the Aliyun OS uses virtual machine and runtime environment software different from Android, and was also designed to run Aliyun’s own Web-based apps.

Notwithstanding Google’s hostility, Chinese ecommerce giant Alibaba is to spin its mobile operating system, Aliyun, into a separate company and invest $200m in the project to build a significant OEM and developer base.

Aliyun is already running on two smartphones including the K-Touch W700. In May 2012, more than a million devices equipped with Alibaba OS were sold in China.
