Google's Eric Schmidt Android is winningWhile Google CEO Larry Page was reserved in his recent comments regarding the tech giant’s relationship with Apple, Google’s Eric Schmidt is more direct. Speaking with Bloomberg, the Google chairman and former CEO made it clear that the company believes it’s winning the war against Cupertino.

“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 said, referring to the market-share battle between Android and iOS.

According to a recent report by the International Data Corporation, Apple holds roughly 19% of the smartphone landscape, while Android controls more than 68%.
