Well, here we are again with another story about the success of Android. According to Google CEO Eric Schmidt there’s now around 200,000 Android-based phones selling every single day, which has risen from around 100,000 just two months ago.
“It looks like Android is not just phenomenal but incredibly phenomenal in its growth rate. God knows how long that will continue.”
Google, unlike Microsoft, gives the OS away for nothing. They instead earn revenue from the ads that pop up when you do a Google search on your phone.
“Trust me that revenue is large enough to pay for all of Android’s activities and a whole bunch more.”
There’s also a back-handed compliment to the iPhone, which also earns money for Google as people use Google search on that handset.
