Speaking of Android being a nice little business for companies not named Google, it’s only fair to point out that the iPhone is also a nice business for companies beyond Apple. In fact, as Charles Arthur writes for The Guardian:

The figures also suggest that Apple devices such as the iPhone, which use products such as its Maps as well as Google Search in its Safari browser, generated more than four times as much revenue for Google as its own handsets in the same period.

So while Android may have only made $550 million in revenue for Google in the past three years combined, at least they’ve been able to squeeze over $2 billion out of Apple’s devices in the same span.

Of course, Apple has squeezed well over $100 billion in revenues just on the sale of those products alone over the same span.
