You aren't missing anything.

Verizon tried bundling Bing with Android they still do that anymore? Their success wasn't great I think, but it wasn't because Google had monopoly power over the (open) Android platform. It was because Google tends to have a superior product.

I'm trying to think of analogies, but they all have higher switching costs for the user than for Google -> someone else. I mean, you can't put Windows Phone on a Motorola phone, but that's Microsoft's fault.
