Judge Says Google's Android Lost Money in 2010

U.S. District Court judge William Alsup, during a discussion about finances in the Oracle vs. Google case, said that the Android platform generated a loss for Google in every quarter of 2010.

Google Inc's Android mobile platform resulted in a net loss for the company in every quarter of 2010, despite generating roughly $97.7 million in revenue for the first quarter of that year, a U.S. judge said in court. The discussion on Thursday of the finances of what has become the world's leading mobile operating software in just four years came during a damages hearing in high stakes litigation between Oracle and Google over smartphone technology.
