Just my opinion , but think about it, , its either commercial (profit margin / component costs) or pure fear they will have a lot of work to do not to end up like a one horse android (trick) pony.
Not only that but it will kill the battery. Androids come a long way with battery life while keeping functionality.

I know.... It totally sucks. I was so hanging to be able to play the new need for speed on my Nexus 7 and now I can't because Android sucks and the Play Store is totally deficient.

Err....wait. what the??
