Alibaba Group said it plans to promote its mobile operating system with subsidies for phone makers and launch a US$160 million (RMB1 billion) program to encourage developers to make applications for the platform, The Wall Street Journal reported. Chinese mobile makers Konka Group, Amoi Technology, Shenzhen Zopo Communications Equipment, G’Five International and Beijing Little Chilli Technology will roll out phone models using the Alibaba OS. The company said it will also change the name of the OS to Alibaba Mobile Operating System, or AMOS. Alibaba’s efforts to promote its OS could revive a dispute with Google, which alleged that Alibaba’s previous OS was merely a modified version of Google Android.
