According to source, an European anti-trust regulator is looking at whether Google smartphone platform Android is violating fair competition norms and the company is already under investigation of European Commission for alleged anti-competitive behavior in the search engine market. Is this going to create an issue ?

In accordance with the Android issue, the European Commission Vice President Joaquin Almunia said that the case is at an initial and early stage and a decision on launching a formal investigation is yet to be taken. The hard fact is that Android is one of the popular and widely used smartphone operating platforms globally.

We have not yet formalized the concerns. We are looking at the way the Android ecosystem deals with different elements that can be considered as anti-competitive rules.Joaquin Almunia

The estimates from Gartner show that Android has accounted for more than 80% share in the smartphone operating system market during the third quarter of 2013.
