Sorry if this has been discussed before (I'm still relatively new to these forums), but has Google ever explained why it limited access of non-phones to its app store in the first place? I would think that expanding the userbase of its relatively nascent app store and OS would be in its interest (as well as the developers of applications). Is the concern that the lack of cell capabilities somehow makes piracy easier? I can't imagine that it's a technical limitation for most non-telephonic dependent apps.

I expect Apple to be arbitrary and unreasonable with respect to how its customers choose to use their products. But I thought that Google endeavored to be more relaxed with these sorts of restrictions and more accommodating of innovation.
