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.

[quote cite=”Joaquin Almunia”]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.[/quote]

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.
