CEO Eric Schmidt says Google is clearly winning the war against iOS

During an interview with Bloomberg, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said Android is now clearly winning the war against iOS. In fact, Mr Schmidt did not avoid making a comparison, by saying that rivalry between iOS and Android, reminds him of fighting between Microsoft and Apple, 20 years ago. “This is a huge platform change; this is of the scale of 20 years ago. Microsoft versus Apple. We're winning that war pretty clearly now.”

He went on to say that new users now activate over 1.3 million Android devices per day. It’s worth mentioning that only during the third quarter this year, Android got a 72% market share, while Apple’s iOS has been limited to 14%. Mr Schmidt said “The core strategy is to make a bigger pie. We will end up with a not perfectly controlled and not perfectly managed bigger pie by virtue of open systems.”
