    Post Huawei Seeks European Trademark for 'Ark OS'

    This potato quality screenshot is from the official EU trademark application listing on the German registry DPMA. The trademark being sought is called 'Ark OS', and is widely believed to be Huawei's post-Google operating system for future mobile devices.

    I chose to post this particular sample over others in the filing because it shows compatibility with something called the Android Green Alliance. Translated from German, WinFuture explains:

    Among other things, the pictures repeatedly mention the Chinese "Android Green Alliance", which is an association of Huawei and some Chinese Internet companies such as Tencent and Alibaba. The association committed itself a few years ago to introduce standards in the quality and design of their apps for Google's mobile operating system.
    In the absence of any other facts I can only speculate that Ark OS will end up being a proper fork of Android (entirely possible under AOSP's Apache 2.0 License) or something entirely new, which just happens to be 100% backwards-compatible with existing Android APKs.

    I'm crossing my fingers for the second one... if Huawei were to license their new OS to other OEMS—or, better yet, open-source it—the smartphone racket could get really interesting...
