Oracle: Google earning $10 million a day from Android


In the ongoing sage that is lawsuits and patent infringements, Oracle has asked the courts to stay or dismiss a Java-related case against Google for upwards of 9 months. In the letter submitted to the courts, Oracle listed what they believe to be Google’s earnings from Android. According to their calculations, Google is pulling in around $10 million in revenue per day.

“Each day’s worth of activations likely generates approximately $10 million in annual mobile advertising revenue for Google.” – Oracle

Although Oracle doesn’t say how they arrive said figure, patent expert Florian Muller surmises that the number is probably based on “the assumption of annual advertising revenues of $14 per Android user.” Rather, that’s 700,000 daily activations worth $14 a piece for a total of approximately $10 million.  Every day.  Oracle argues that Android is considerably more than just a source for mobile revenue and that it also helps to pull in new users for the Google+ network.

    Oracle’s math is screwed up. Google’s ENTIRE mobile revenue for 2011 was $2.5 billion; for 2010 it was $1 billion; for 2009 it was estimated at $0.059 billion ($59 million). Assuming that Andoid’s average market share was 40% in 2011, and 20% in 2010, that leads to $1.2 billion that can be assigned to Android (the 2009 amount is statistical noise at this point). That’s less than $2 million per day.
    In the future, Google may well see $10 million per day, but it hasn’t yet.Oracle need to go back to basic math class.

    Why does the title says:
    Google earning $10 million a day from Android
    and the quote says
    generates approximately $10 million in annual mobile advertising revenue

    annual IS NOT per day.. am I missing somerthing?
