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.
