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.

While I agree, nothing stops a vendor from shipping the Google apps *and* alternatives, and make the alternatives the default ones, does it? At least several of my Android devices (admittedly cheap Chinese ones from companies that might have ignored Google's rules) came with pre-installed alternatives to one or more Google applications as well as the Google applications themselves.
