This Time, China builds own phone OS

While China has claimed it as own-made OS, the Operating System looks like it is based on Android.

The China Operating System, or shortly known as COS, was unveiled last week by the famous Chinese Academy of Sciences and also, the Shanghai-based Liantong Network Communications Technology Ltd., the New York Times has reported. The COS is specially "designed for use on many of the devices including the smart phones and for the personal computers" and it was also called "a strategic product for the national security," the Times have said.

The US surveillance and the end of support for the Windows XP have reportedly played a vital role in the system's creation. The Liantong Deputy GM, Mr. Chen Feili, has said that the ultimate goal is to make the COS China's main operating system running on various devices.

While Windows OS is still the predominant desktop Operating System in China, the Android commands more than about 90 percent of China's smart phone market, with the iOS taking most of the rest places.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
