(PC World) This device will carry an app on it that allows users to quickly and easily search and make purchases on Taobao.com.There's no official information out about the specs, hardware, or even OS of this new device. Shanzai.com thinks that the new device could use Android. The open source OS holds a lot of appeal to developers like Taobao. It's established, popular, and means less work for them building or licensing an operating system.
