Re: Isn't Android open source?
If I understand correctly, they want Google to refuse to grace those phones with their apps, Google Play Services and the like, unless the phone makers accept letting users deinstall anything they want.
In fact, it's (ab)using Google's monopoly on their highly sought-after Google Play Services to force phone makers to do something they don't want to do. It's essentially the same thing that Google got fined billions by the EU for... Except that this time, it's for the good of users. Maybe.
