Google’s Android mobile platform is currently the most popular mobile OS that we could ever find. Most people would think that Google might be making billions of money from this platform, but sadly it goes the other way around.
According to the latest reports from The Guardian, Google appears to be making more money from Apple products than their own Android. The reports show that Google has only made $550 million from Android in 2008 to 2011 and it also suggested how Google made four times more profits through Apple products like iPhone, via apps like Google maps and Google search for its Safari. The Guardian, also points out that according to these numbers Google only makes about $10 per Android device, considering the 200 million of Android devices activated at the end of 2011.
