Were you wondering how Google is faring financially this year? If you were, then you needn’t be losing any sleep over it. They’re just fine, thank you.
Discussing Q2 earnings today, Google’s Larry Page announced to investors earnings of $9.02 in revenue and $2.51 billion in net income. Right, net. By comparison, it was $1.84 billion during the same period last year. Money not your thing? Let’s talk activations. Page also announced 550,000 new activations daily. That’s 50,000 MORE per day than they announced just two weeks ago, 200,000 per day more than Q1, and 390,000 more per day than one year ago. Is it me, or is that kinda crazy?
Lastly, we also learned that the Android Market now contains more than 250,000 applications and just passed its 6 billionth (yah, with a b) download.
