Want to know why Google is nervous about Samsung’s dominance of the Android ecosystem? Look no further than new research from Strategy Analytics showing that the company accounted for 95% of all Android operating profits in the first quarter of 2013. The research firm says that this is a record high for Samsung and shows that rival Android manufacturers are increasingly finding it difficult to make any money off the platform. Although Strategy Analytics’ new research is certainly striking, it isn’t all that surprising given that other data has shown that Apple and Samsung together account for all the smartphone industry’s profits while all other smartphone vendors find themselves lucky to simply escape the red in any given quarter.
