Google’s Eric Schmidt Claimed Android Is Flipping The Mobile War, Is It?


Google chairman Eric Schmidt has declared Android the winner in its mobile war with Apple. Mashable gave a quick notice about the changing market trend here:

Recent statistics support Schmidt’s optimism, with Android capturing 72% of worldwide market share in the third quarter, while Apple took 14%, according to Gartner, which conducts information technology research.

Unlike Apple, Google does not make its money on hardware; for this reason, it is willing to give away Android because the OS’ widespread use helps the company make more money from ads.

“The core strategy is to make a bigger pie,” Schmidt said. “We will end up with a not perfectly controlled and not perfectly managed bigger pie by virtue of open systems.”
