Google has recently published its Q4 2011 financial results, which were quite a bit below analyst predictions. Although the search giant reported record revenues, the numbers fall $300 million below investors’ expectations.
However, the company announced its revenues exceeded the numbers reported in Q3 2011 by almost $1 billion. In fact, for the first time, Google’s revenues top $10 billion and the profit increases to $2.71 billion.
In addition, Google published several interesting results concerning its Android operating system. It appears that the number of activated Android devices has passed the 250 million mark, up 50 million since November 2011.
In the same news, Google reported that its Android Market had reached 11 billion downloads, 1 billion up from December 2011.
At this pace, it won’t come as a surprise to see other record-breaking numbers being reported by Google in Q1 2012.
