“Kommersant”: in Russia began the development of a domestic mobile ecosystem based on Android
The Russian authorities and participants in the IT market have begun developing a project for a domestic mobile ecosystem based on Android. Writes about this “Kommersant”.
According to the newspaper, the project is “formed and supervised” by the Center for Expertise and Coordination of Informatization under the Ministry of Digital Development. In the spring, the development will be provided to the relevant Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko.
The need is explained by the fact that after the start of the special operation in Ukraine, many applications of Russian developers were removed from foreign stores.
The first meeting was attended by representatives of VK, Yandex, Sberbank, Rostelecom, Open Mobile Platforms, domestic manufacturers of consumer electronics (Aquarius, F + tech and others), as well as developers from Kaspersky Lab, Astra Group (Astra Linux), Basalt SPO (Alt Linux) and others.
Russian companies planned to form a consortium to develop a publicly available operating system for smartphones late last year.
