Android generated less than $550m in revenues for Google between 2008 and the end of 2011, if figures provided by the search giant as part of a settlement offer with Oracle ahead of an expected patent and copyright infringement trial are an accurate guide.
The figures also suggest that Apple devices such as the iPhone, which use products such as its Maps as well as Google Search in its Safari browser, generated more than four times as much revenue for Google as its own handsets in the same period.
Steve Jobs pernah bilang begini:
We did not enter the search business, they entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone.
Tidak Steve, Google tidak akan membunuh iPhone. Google menyukai iPhone karena Google mendapat pendapatan empat kali lebih besar dari iPhone daripada Android.
