A Potential iPhone Competitor Emerges

One more story for today, this one regarding a new potential iPhone competitor entering the smartphone market very soon. The world’s largest online business-to-business trading platform, the Alibaba Group announced that it had developed a mobile operating system, Aliyum and is already headed to the Chinese Markets. The Linux-based OS is able to run Android, applications, as well as being able to run HTML and Javascript. It has a "cloud-based" email, Web search, GPS and also can also store call data, text messages and photos in the cloud. The English version of the OS is expected to come out before the end of the year.

It seems very promising, having nearly the same capabilities of Android; but it seems to be quite late to enter the smartphone market now; especially that brings nothing new to the table. Plus now that Android is now being claimed by Apple for violating their patients theirs no doubt that Android's brother here will face the same stupidity.
