Android to make Google obscenely rich(er)?

It appears Google is expecting to put a little extra coin in its pockets. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Eric Schmidt said he thinks Android could bring in as much as $10 billion annually for Google, and based that estimate on the idea that Android could get to 1 billion users. Just because Google gives away Android for free, doesn’t mean they can’t still make money from it. If you have a billion users, it’s not that hard to imagine, really: that works out to $10 per user, per year. That doesnt seem so hard to accomplish, right? And more money for Google means more improvements and features in Android, which is a win for everyone.

Do you think Google can earn $10 billion per year from Android?

I've been an Android fanboy since day one, but I've never had a chance to truly express my voice and be a part of the Android Community. When AndroidGuys starting accepting applications for interns, I saw my opportunity. I joined the AndroidGuys team and haven't looked back!
