Google A few days ago I dove into the lawsuit filed by Skyhook against Google, and came to the conclusion that Skyhook's case - while an entirely plausible sequence of events considering Google is a big company and hence prone to abuse - simply wasn't a very good one. Google's CEO Eric Schmidt has given a rather generic-looking statement on the matter, but however generic it may be, there's a hint in there.

This article makes it sound like it's a bad thing.
But consider this.

There are devices shipping already which are missing essential stuff like the back button.
Google doesn't allow any Google applications on such devices since the experience is awful.

On the other hand if you incorporate Android into a car you might not need Google Applications anyway and you will provide a specialized market for car applications.

Also if you are Yahoo and want to create an Android phone, you don't care much about those applications either and preinstall a market like SlideMe.
