PARIS — Xinhua, China's news agency, reported Aug. 24 that China's homegrown operating system will be unveiled in October.
Xinhua quoted Ni Guangnan of the Chinese Academy of Engineering saying that the OS will be first seen on desktop devices and later expanded to smartphones and other mobile devices.
Ni's comments were originally reported by the People's Post and Telecommunications News, an official trade paper run by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).
China's ambition to develop its own OS has been long known. Ni, in fact, heads an OS development alliance established in March in China.
