Monopoly Android

Strategy Analytics recently published its latest quarterly report on the state of the smartphone market. According to these data, Xiaomi, for example, is among the top five producers of smartphones – 5.1% of all units belong just to the brand. And despite the fact that the company had not yet entered the international market. But in addition, it was reported that Android is now installed on 84.6% of all devices, and the only major manufacturer not producing mobile gadgets running green robot is Apple. Moreover, Android – the only platform showing growth.

Top manufacturers of smartphones in the market

Needless to say, this is great news for us with you, the fans of mobile OS from Google, but the rest of the market do not really share our joy. European authorities, in particular, stated its intention to conduct an investigation into the search giant, associated with its overwhelming advantage over other mobile platforms. Say, is not Google a monopoly? However, it will start if the European nations will be sold to more than 80% of the devices on Android, as long as the same in this region figure is only 73%.


Share of the OS market

It is believed that it is walking on the ice. A full-scale investigation into possible monopoly Google may have serious consequences for the OS, which we all love and cherish. On the other hand, whereby? Most of us would say that Google competes fairly, and that has brought results – the natural result for a great OS.

Same sources familiar with the situation told Reuters, that the Europeans are not so much concerned about Android’s share of their market, as the very practice of Google, the company allegedly abusing its dominance.

As an example of the aggressive policy given the fact that Google requires manufacturers to install some of its applications such as Maps and Search. Rejecting the same vendors, it becomes difficult to provide a good user experience without official support, especially as the ability of your phone Google Play also requires installation of the very applications.

Perhaps it would be worth to remind that Google created Android as a free open ecosystem and provides its producers absolutely free to circulate to the greatest possible number of users. And if you look at the current statistics, it seems that it worked. Is this abuse of his position? Well, what to say.
