Google vs Oracle lawsuit reveals first ‘Google Phone’ from 2006

Google and Oracle are currently in a huge legal spat over the Java code being used in Android. We've covered it briefly but it's all quite technical stuff. Today however during the hearings they've revealed the original "Google Phone" that was presented to carriers such as T-Mobile in 2006 - two years before the original G1 was released in 2008, and one year before the iPhone was launched in 2007.

Google CEO says Android isn’t critical, only a tool to deliver Google services

An interesting story is making the rounds this afternoon regarding comments from Google's CEO Larry Page. During Google's court appearance over the spat with Oracle over the Android code Larry Page was quoted saying a few things and people are taking it the wrong way.

Google makes 4 times as much revenue on iOS as on Android? Not so fast

Earlier this week a report from The Guardian stated that Google was making four times as much money off of advertising from iPhone, iPad and iPod ads than it was on the entire Android platform. Android Community elected not to run the story, because frankly, we had doubts about the author's methods of calculation based on a proposed settlement in the Oracle lawsuit. It appears that we weren't the only ones: Business Insider reports that a source close to Google has invalidated the claim, saying that the Guardian misunderstood the value and intention of the settlement.

How much does Android earn Google? Oracle says $10M a day

Take this one with a grain of salt, folks: in a recent submission to the court in conjunction with its ongoing lawsuit, Oracle estimated that revenue from Android activations made every day net Google a whopping $10 million across an entire year. Estimating that the figure stays solid over 2012 (and keep in mind, it's almost certain to increase) that would mean that Google makes approximately 3.7 billion dollars on Android advertising alone. Oracle did not say how it reached this conclusion, but Free and Open Source Software advocate Florian Muller guesses that they're assuming $14 of ad revenue per Android user, per year.

Oracle vs Google Android lawsuit to End

It's been over a year since we first reported that Oracle was looking into a suit against Google for its perceived infringement of their Java code, and we've finally come to a point where it appears that both parties are willing to reach, maybe, perhaps, a settlement. This settlement may well come in this newest announced move for a mediation meeting between representatives from Google and representatives from Oracle, this newest move sparking talk about how serious Google is taking the case and questions over whether or not they're prepared to defend themselves in a case that could, ultimately, believe it or not, end up in the destruction of Android as we know it today.
