A new mobile OS from China is set to give android competition
A Chinese company, Alibaba, has released a cloud-based mobile operating system that is set to provide some smart competition for Android and iOS.
The system is called Aliyun</strong> and it is to feature first on a smartphone from Beijing called K-Touch Cloud W700. Aliyun is built on the uniquitous Linux platform and therefore it is expected to be available on free license.
The Aliyun operating system is internet based, meaning most of its applications and functions will totally depend on internet connection. The same applies to its applications; they will not be available directly from the phone but when online.
Aliyun is also compatible with most Android applications, which is one more reason Android is expecting stiff competition from the Asian based company.
