EU preparing a formal complaint against Android
The European Union is preparing to send Google a formal complaint over the Android operating system.

Google is having a rough go on the continent, as it just concluded a complaint from EU, over their comparison shopping search, and the company's advertising business and current taxes are also under review.



Previous anti-trust investigations by the EU, against Intel and Microsoft, have led to billion dollar fines for each. The initial search into Android began 3 years ago, after a consortium backed by Nokia and Microsoft submitted a complaint. The EU is worried mainly by Google's bundling of their own apps with Android, including YouTube, Chrome and Maps, and whether that practice harms rival developers.
