Alibaba’s new Aliyun search engine raises the stakes in its feud with Google and Android
Last year, Google took action against Alibaba’s Aliyun OS ahead of a scheduled device launch with Acer. The spat became a highly public one as Android boss Andy Rubin and Alibaba’s CTO exchanged words.
Rejecting Google’s claims that Aliyun OS is a forked version of Android, Alibaba pledged not to deviate from its mobile strategy. The company did, however, move to put some distance between it and Aliyun OS by spinning off the division.
Alibaba’s strength in ecommerce and cloud computing usually results in comparisons to eBay and Amazon as western equivalents, but, as it diversifies its product portfolio, it’s increasingly coming into direct competition with Google. The new Aliyun search site, for example, offers specific searches for news, pictures and a beta version of maps. Alibaba began integrating Aliyun’s mapping service into its Taobao C2C marketplace last October.
