Yes it could be shocking for you but it’s the fact which Google has claimed by its own. Google is generating four times more revenue from Apple’s mobile devices than its own Android smartphone OS. In a shocking revelation Google has disclosed that it has generated $550 million as revenue from the launch of Android in 2008 till the end of 2011. The stats came to light through a settlement offer provided by Google to Oracle against ongoing patent infringement case.

Apple’s safari browser which is pre-loaded on iPhone iPad and iPod contains Google Map and Search functionality in respect to a deal between two tech giants. During the earning call in October last year, Google CEO Larry page announced that the company was seeing huge positive revenue from mobile which has increased 2.5 times in last one year to a run-rate of $2.5 billion.
