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. Page’s comment clearly indicates that quite a large portion of mobile revenue is coming from services than mobile native ecosystem. Google’s total annual revenue stood to $38 billion.

Google has been activating around 850,000 Android handsets every day for last 3 months. Till the end of 2011, roughly around $200 million Android devices having been activated by Google compare to 355 million iOs devices by Apple since 2007.

Though, Google lets manufacturers to use Android license free of cost, it has certain rules for ‘certification’ that include adding search, maps, YouTube and few other services with each license. And, that’s how Google compensate its investment over mobile OS.

The interesting fact with such exposure is the way tech giants are financially leveraging more on competitors’ products than their own products’ gains. Microsoft is minting millions from Google Android and the figure is much more than the company is earning its own Windows Phone OS. Apple has also claimed the compensation from Android and now it’s the above latest exposure the mobile OS market is just becoming more interesting for each dime out there.
