Some more interesting information gleamed from the transcripts released during Oracle's lawsuit against Google.  Apparently Google's Android has made $22 billion from Android, and although it's a bit unclear from the transcripts what time period this is referring to, it seems to infer from Oracle's attorney, Annette Hurst that this is since 2008, when Google launched the mobile operating system.  If this is true then it would mean that Google has made less revenue from Android in nearly 8 years than Apple has made in just one quarter.  Apple's earnings release of Sept 2015 shows that the iPhone alone took in $33 Billion in revenue...in just that one quarter alone.

Now of course this isn't really an apples to apples comparison because Apple makes a ton of money from hardware and other products besides the iPhone while Google makes money in addition to its Android business, with the bulk coming from its advertising revenue from it's dominant Google search engine as well as other web services.  Still, it's interesting to see how the business models of the two companies differ and how each reaps its revenue in drastically different ways despite competing head to head in the smartphone space.
