Commissioner Vestager's statement here.
Minutes of the meeting of the Commission here (on Android: "She pointed out that Google had led development of the Android mobile
operating system since 2005, and the majority of smartphone and tablet
manufacturers used this system, having concluded agreements with Google to
obtain the right to install Google's applications on their devices. She explained
that the Commission's in-depth investigation would focus on whether, by
doing so, Google had breached EU antitrust rules by hindering the
development and market access of rival mobile operating systems,
applications and services to the detriment of consumers and developers of
innovative services and products").
"Ms Vestager on Wednesday will also launch a separate formal investigation into Google’s Android operating system for smartphones. The Commission probe will examine whether Google imposes uncompetitive terms on handset makers that ultimately favour its own lucrative apps such as YouTube. Google rejects any allegations of wrongdoing and says Android is an open platform distributed free."
