Google has explained why it gave Acer an ultimatum over a new handset running a modded version of Android.
The company says the phone will be made available in China, hitting store shelves there Friday.
The Chinese search giant says Google is "just speculating" about its Aliyun operating system, and insists it's different than Android.
The company is reportedly seeing strong demand for its Aliyun operating system and is now firmly squared up with Android.
The China-based company says Google threatened to pull its Android support from Acer if Acer pursued Alibaba's Aliyun operating system.
The mobile operating system is called Aliyun OS and will be running on the K-Touch Cloud-Smart Phone W700 by the end of this month.
