http://m.... moreIf it's true that's really not fair play from Google, but it's still a one off situation and time will tell if they learned their lesson.
But Apple does things like this on an almost daily basis and actually get worse over time.
[deleted post]Current sales seem to deny your conjecture. Maybe it will happen, but doubtful during iPhone 5, it is already to an incredible start with sellout 20x faster than previous models.

From the article:
"Wait... what? Yes. Google supposedly threatened Acer that if they released a phone on another OS, that they would pretty much not be allowed to make Android phones again. That's not exactly "don't be evil". What about Google's other Android partners who make Windows Phones? Will Google strong arm them as well?
