You mean that Alibaba forked it. Acer didn't. As an OHA member, Acer is not allowed to make a device with forked Android. They agreed to that when they joined. Smaller manufacturer Haier should've likewise been reminded of their obligations when they broke their promise. By letting them have a pass, Google looked bad later on. Re: "open". I think that Google should've used a different phrase to differentiate their project rules.
