Android antitrust complaint filed against Google in EU

A new antitrust accussation has been filed against Google in the EU for using its Android operating system "as a deceptive way to build advantages for key Google apps in 70 percent of the smartphones shipped today". The complaint was filed by Fairsearch Europe, a group of Google rivals that includes Microsoft, Nokia, Oracle, and a bunch of travel booking and shopping comparison websites.
The problem, as Fairsearch sees it, is that Google forces OEMs who use Android to unfairly place apps like YouTube and Gmail in prominent places on the desktop. Of course, this new complaint is just the beginning, so we'll have to wait and see what the European Commission's investigation into the matter uncovers, and how the folks in Mountain View respond.
