Anonymous, 14 Dec 2012To make it a meaningful comparison, you would have to compare Apple's revenue associated with ... moreFinacial comparisons with google and apple are a daft way of comparing the two companies, Market share is the primary way because in the long run thats what will decide the war.
Nobody doubts Apple make a great product but If they continue to have a small percentage of the market eventually App developers move to an Android first approach.
Before anyone harps on about apple Apps being more secure etc, Thats because the average Apple user is too thick to root they're phone in the first place
Yawgom, 14 Dec 2012Of course apple make more profit than Google, and sells much less than android, so as an iphon... moreMost of the Apps on App Store and Play Store are the same price. Not sure where your going with that comment. Most apps are $.99 or £.69. Yes Apple make more money from them, but it doesnt affect the base price of the app itself.
Of course apple make more profit than Google, and sells much less than android, so as an iphone user you feel proud of giving away your money for hardware and apps that you could have for much less? Besides I can tell you several Things that I can do with my Android that the iphone can't, and as far as I know, the only thing that iphone can do is sue everyone for they stup... Bounce scroll patent.
Fairview, 14 Dec 2012Lets put it this way, if Apple decide to produce $1 tablets and phones today, Android will dis... moreAgreed. If they think its remarkable that Android is winning, with tons of diferent cheaper devices, against just iPhone and iPad that are way expensive, they are completely fighting against the wrong enemy.
Apple is far superior, what Eric Schmidt said is a proof of that. If he said that Samsung Galaxy S2 or S3 and Galaxy tab or other top devices with Android were winning it would start to be an achievment.
simple solution if apple decide to have more free apps. that swing the balance. nearly 3/4 of android apps are free. so there you have it.

Samsung is in top position on smartphone industry, TV industry, camera industry, semiconductor industry, laptop industry, home appliance industry and more! :)

However Android is winning the fight in amount of actual units sold and activated. Which is what the article is about not NET PROFITS.

Who for some reason queue for days to get over charged for the latest slightly different rectangle with rounded corners every year!
Lets put it this way, if Apple decide to produce $1 tablets and phones today, Android will disappear into think air. I think he should be focusing more on windows phone and Windows RT because they are going to roll out some dead cheap products in a couple of months which will go head to head with android products.
In this war still windows phones are there ,don't ignore. Them they are also in the race for championship,
Android beware with Microsoft and IOS
Samsung Chief strategy officer uses iPhone , iPad and iPod:
He use Samsung at his work and Apple at home LMAO :

I understood that you are just jumping to conclusions without understanding anything.
Market Cap is the one which any shareholder or invester looks because Share values determine a company's success , sometimes they boom and sometimes they slide off but nobody looks into how many assests a company has or how much they are worth.
Operating Income is different from Net Income , Wikipedia is not right source for information.Each company has quarters and these earnings from Wiki mentions only years but not which quarter to which quarter.
What i gave in link is Net Income which means final income a company gets after subtracting all expenses from profits they had and it also mentioned quarters correctly and made a nice chart to show which company "earns" more.
Lu, 14 Dec 2012Google took it because they have thousands of devices, while Apple has only 3 main iOS device...So? It is Apple's business decision. Nobody's stopping them from selling multiple devices ala Android
Dave, 14 Dec 2012In Tablets nothing comes close to iOS. Phones its a different story. But I would only buy iOS ... moreTrue, i totally agree you.. I have note2 and ipad mini... I am so impressed with the built quality and sound output of Ipad mini. The quality of apps are much much more than what i feels on note2. Well note has soo many options especially with sPen which for me it is only useful to take snapshots and make fun on my frnds pics.. ! but for my daily use like facebooking, youtube, emailing and presentation.. especially gaming and reading... Ipad mini stands out for its quality of apps. since now with dropbox i can syn photos with my laptop, note2 and ipad mini so sharing files is not much an issue for me... Im really impressed..! But utterly disspointed with Iphone 5, i even feels funny wen i see someone overpays and buy iphone5 over s3 or note2.. But ipad mini is awesome. worth buying.. especially the sound quality of ipad mini stands out. best in any devise ive used until now..
