Android is less of a trap: its open source and vendors can always alter it any way they like, or use something like Cyanogenmod.
Of course Android is dominated by Google, and it would be great if something like Mer, Sailfish or Firefox OS got some real traction, but as things are its a lot better than the Apple or MS alternatives.
Also, since when is Google dominant in mobile? Its now the market leader but Apple has a pretty strong position (and is the market leader in the high end)
