Alcatel-Lucent formed a joint venture with TCL, a Chinese company to
produce phone in 2004, but TCL acquired the joint venture in 2005

"honour the GPL"
I assume you mean the Linux kernel used on Android, which mean the source
code were released by TCL without any involvement from Alcatel-Lucent
(since the joint venture dissolved on 2005)
