Legal After Microsoft's extortion racket has failed to stop Android, and after Oracle's crazy baseless lawsuit failed to stop Android, and after Nokia adopting Windows Phone failed to stop Android, Microsoft, Nokia, and Oracle are now grasping the next straw in their fruitless efforts to stop Android: they've filed an antitrust complaint with the EU, claiming Google unfairly bundles applications with Android.

And thats the important distinction. Google isn't forcing anyone to do anything. IF you want to ship "Android" you have to have certain apps installed and you can't change the system so much that it won't run Android apps. This is the deal of being in the Open Handset Alliance. You are still free to take Android and do whatever you want with it, as seen by Amazon and B&N. Thing is, only t he real "Android" devices seem to be doing really well. People want their Google services.
