Â “AndroidÂ has established a clear monopoly in Â ChinaÂ after achieving more than 90 percent market share there, up from 58.2 percent a year ago, according to a new report from Analysys International (via Tech in Â AsiaÂ ). The data combines estimates from both devices sales and ownership.”
There’s nothing illegal about monopoly. Google achieved monopoly in China legally, without exclusive dealing, anti-competitive actions, and without eliminating competition on price/performance. Google did it by providing a great product at a very reasonable price, $0 provided that the space of users increases so that Google grows its core business, advertising. It’s a brilliant strategy that completely whipped those monopolists at M$ and Apple.
