re: Android VP Barra Exits For Chinese Smartphone Maker
Story in The Register identifies this company as a "fork seller" because part of its story is forking the open source Android code http://www.theregister.co.uk/2...

That would explain why they need Barra to keep taking the mobile OS in their own direction (whatever that is)
