Bundling or Tying is at Heart of EC Charge Against Google (Always Is)

The European Commission argues that by tying use of the Android OS and Google Play to a phone supplier's offering of Google's search engine and browser, Google quashed potential competition. 

But many would argue Android is not a monopoly. There are other choices, aside from Android and the iPhone OS. But few end users or phone manufacturers have chosen to use those alternatives. Tying or bundling always raises issues, though.
