iPhone generates more revenue than all of Microsoft

In case you missed it, and I certainly would have if not for someone asking a question, Apple's fiscal 2012 first quarter earnings report has a jaw dropper. iPhone generated $24.42 billion revenue. During the same quarter, all of Microsoft: $20.89 billion. More broadly, Apple revenue ($46.33 billion) was more than twice Microsoft's, and net income nearly was ($13.06 billion versus $6.62 billion, respectively). But it's that iPhone figure that really stands out. One product's revenues against an entire company's. -betanews.com (Apple, Industry, iPhone, Microsoft, Phones, Services)

if the iphone makes more revenue than microsoft.. does android makes more revenue than the iphone and micrososft?

Erm. If MS imposed a licensing fee on every piece of Windows software, and forced all software to be sold through the MS store, I think their revenue would exceed Apple's by a ridiculous margin.

Kind of a... Apples to Oranges (ha!) comparison.
