In their view, the major manufacturers of smartphones, such as Samsung, pressure mounted on the search giant’s services its products Google, rather than their alternatives. Thus, users are deprived of choice – use your smartphone with the software Google or save them. That is, the company prevents competition, which leads to higher prices.

Prices can influence and are influenced by many o ther factors. Plaintiffs in three weeks should be reformulated statement, otherwise they will have to pay court costs.
This trial – not the only thing in which Google is trying to punish him for monopolization Android.
