First time someone gets fined for giving something for free

Cost of Android $ 0.00 / A reasonable Android phone starts at around $ 250

Cost of the only viable alternative to Android: $ 700 - $ 1000

Is that Googles fault, or a market that does not work well ?.

It is sad to see that the first company improving the life of ordinary people in ways only matched by the Ford Motor Company when they started mass producing the T-Ford, gets fined by a bunch of greedy unelected clerks. Without Google we still would live in a 90's hell of .NET dominated internet sites and browsers refusing to render non .NET sites.
