Google's settled an Android antitrust case with Russian Federation

Google's commercial settlement with Yandex is separate from its legal settlement with the regulator. They are also working on a Chrome widget for future devices. Google will allow apps and competing search engines to be pre-loaded on devices, with a new tool to select the latter.

Google Inc. has agreed to no longer restrict the preinstallation of applications on smartphones running its Android operating system sold in Russian Federation to settle allegations that it abused its dominance in the marketplace, the country's antitrust regulator said Monday. FAS had accused Google of abusing its monopoly position in mobile app stores serving the Android operating system.

Russian users didn't have the option of changing to a different search engine on those phones.

This makes the applications pre-installation channel on mobile devices open for application developers who will get equal rights and opportunities to access the devices on the territory of the Russian Federation.
