Russia Yanks Google From Android Tablets

Russia’s answer to this problem is the Russian Mobile Operating System (RoMOS), unveiled in the sidelines of the IFA event in Berlin, according to reports. RoMOS has the look and feel of Android, but does not call home to send your data and is virtually hack-proof, the developers claim. It also uses Russia’s own GPS alternative, the GLONASS or the Global Navigation Satellite System, in the eventuality the U.S. government shuts down the GPS system. The iPhone 4S also supports GLONASS.
