Google positioning Android to earn over $10 billion per year

Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt is positioning their Android platform to eventually become a $10 billion a year (or more) business. In an interview, Schmidt said “If we have a billion people using Android, you think we can’t make money from that?”. Currently Android is free and open for manufacturers to put on their devices, but Schmidt said it would only take $10 for each user to reach that level. One way they plan to earn this massive amount of revenue is through newspaper subscriptions.
