Alibaba Cloud Computing recently unveiled a cloud-based mobile operating system called Aliyun OS.
Being a cloud-based OS, Aliyun will feature cloud services like e-mail, Internet search, weather updates and GPS navigation tools. With Aliyun users should be able to synchronize, store and back-up data to Alibaba’s remote data center. They can also access and update data across PCs and mobile devices. Aliyun supports web-based apps, which means there’s no need to download or install applications on the mobile device.
Alibaba claims it will provide each Aliyun user with a total of 100 gigabytes of data storage. What’s interesting about the Aliyun OS is that it is compatible with Android-based applications.
Together with the launch of Aliyun OS, Alibaba also unveiled the K-Touch Cloud-Smart Phone W700, the first mobile phone to run on the new OS.
