In a U.S. District Court hearing in San Francisco last week, Oracle's attorney read from a "highly confidential" document. Seriously. Google says the piece of paper had "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL — ATTORNEY'S EYES ONLY" printed on the page.
That document said Android produced $31 billion in sales and $22 billion in profits since 2008. Keeping in mind that Android is just software, last quarter Apple made $32 billion in revenue off iPhones (which includes both hardware and software). (Video via Google, Apple)
