EU: Android decision delayed to next week over Trump visit

As previously predicted by Bloomberg, EU antitrust regulators have postponed to next week a finding against Google’s Android mobile operating system, reported Reuters, avoiding any clash with a visit to Brussels by US President Donald Trump.

The European Commission had scheduled a meeting of national competition agencies for Tuesday, July 10, to brief them on the case, including what is expected to be a record-breaking fine against Alphabet unit Google.

But the meeting has been rescheduled to July 17, the person said, without giving a reason for the change.

The EC has been investigating Google’s Android practices over the last three years, seeking to determine whether the company promoted its mobile apps in an unfair manner, consequently hurting its rivals due to the dominant position of its operating system.
