FTC's Google antitrust probe takes a look at Android

Six weeks after the Federal Trade Commission first served Google with broad subpoenas, FTC lawyers (in partnership with several state attorneys general) are now probing to see whether Google is preventing Android licensees from supporting competitors' digital services across Android-powered devices, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. The report, citing unnamed sources, said FTC lawyers are also investigating how Android's increasing influence is boosting Google's dominance in Web search services. Google is the default search engine across the majority of Android products. Article
