Google’s ‘best deal ever’

David Lawee, vice president of corporate development for Google, stated  at the 16th annual Stanford Accel Symposium that acquiring Android Inc. was Google’s “best deal ever.”  It is hard to argue with him with the rumored acquisition cost of $50 mil, especially with the market share the OS has gained in the last year.

With as many acquisitions that continue to happen at Google it may be a hard statement for Android to keep up with.  With Microsoft revamping their Mobile OS, HP brining Palm to the new level, RIM deciding it better get moving and Apple sitting on it’s laurels who knows what will happen in the coming years in the mobile space.
