“Cracked” – Google might found itself this evening (PT) when it get to know that another EU antitrust complaint being filed against it over the Android mobile operating system, reports The New York Times. The complaint has been filed by Fairsearch Europe against the search giant, although what makes it interesting is that its long-term rival Microsoft is a member of Fairsearch Europe.

The company itself defines that the Android mobile operating system “as a deceptive way to build advantages for key Google apps in 70 percent of the smartphones shipped today” although counting towards what the Times has said about it that with the complaint, fear exists which somehow claims that Google is holding a strong mobile position which is requiring an “exclusive terms for the placement of certain applications.”

More to come, we will keep you updated.
