Sales gulf between Android and iOS grows; Google CEO says 'We're winning that war pretty clearly now'

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

Google is widening the gap between itself and its closest competitor in the mobile business, Apple, company chairman Eric Schmidt said. As more and more people turn to smartphones and tablets for computer-related needs, more and more of them are turning to Android-powered devices.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Schmidt said that incredible demand for Android-powered smartphones helped Google snag 72% of the market in the recently-ended third quarter, compared to the 14% that Apple had. The rate at which the company's lead in the market has expanded was compared to Microsoft's growing domination of desktop computers during the 1990s.

"This is a huge platform change; this is of the scale of 20 years ago -- Microsoft versus Apple," said Schmidt. "We're winning that war pretty clearly now."

Not just Schmidt, Google itself is confident that its influence in the mobile market will grow. Making Android open for anyone to use is a big part of this, as it drives demand for ads and other internet-based services that help the company despite the fact that the money doesn't just go to Google. "The core strategy is to make a bigger pie," Schmidt explained. "We will end up with a not perfectly controlled and not perfectly managed bigger pie by virtue of open systems."
