They're not paying just for hosting the device.

They are saying: We want this device to do well, we realize to do this, you will need to advertise and take a heavy loss up front, so when the device succeeds, we will offer you a portion of the profits.

They're not saying: We'll give you 100million dollars to shove this crap phone on people. From the article, it looks like companies didn't have to sign anything saying they wouldn't accept and promote other devices so I really don't see the issue.

Google's ALWAYS been about advertising. Remember, they are an ad company first and foremost.

If companies adopted the platform because of the potential profit it's because they saw the value in it.
