Re: How Google won the smartphone wars - really?

Google is not interested in making money from Android itself, or the phones sales (that's an issue for Samsung & C., not Google) but to ensure its dominance in the data access, gathering and ads pushing.

With an 80% of users in many lucrative markets, it has achieved that - and it can let Apple make money from selling expensive phones. which, often, will still send data to Google because of the services used, and will show ads from the Google empire.

And because of the prices, Apple won't ever have as many users as Android.
