Acer Cancels Smartphone Launch With Alibaba at Last Minute

4 years ago

Acer and Alibabas cloud computing unit had planned to launch the Acer CloudMobile A800 smartphone, using Alibabas mobile operating system, Aliyun, in Shanghai on Thursday afternoon. But when journalists showed up for the event they were not allowed to enter the venue and an Alibaba Cloud Computing official said the launch had been canceled due to internal reasons.

Later, Alibabas unit released a statement saying Acer had faced pressure from Google and pulled out of the launch event.

Our partner received notification from Google that if the new product launch with Aliyun went ahead, Google would terminate Android product cooperation and related technical authorization with Acer, Alibaba Cloud Computing said in a statement.

This is a major setback for Acer`s aspiration in becoming a more competitive company. They need to solve the situation and get back to the market as soon as possible.
