I'm not sure I really understand all this.  The cellphone market is certainly more open than the PC market.  You have a choice of Apple, Android or Windows phones.  It's natural for Android to have a native browser and nothing stopping anyone using another one if they don't like it.  I've never liked Internet Explorer on PCs and now use Chrome almost exclusively, by choice.  But it doesn't worry me that Win PCs come with IE.     And are there moves to force Apple to offer something other than Safari on their phones??

I suspect tall poppy syndrome is being applied here.....

Serch engines may be another matter, but again if you don't like google there are a multitude of others to choose from.....

It's amazing how fast Google has gone from an up and coming search engine tiunkering with OS projects to the dominant player in search and smartphone OSes, a disrupter of the publishing industry and a target of antitrust.
