Q4 2014 Earnings Call
If you watched the Google Earnings Report this morning there were a few interesting tidbits regarding Google Play, Chromecast and the Nexus 6.

Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette announced that Google’s ‘other revenues’ which equated to $1.96 billion, was up 6% quarter over quarter driven primarily by the Play Store. Mr Pichette also acknowledged scarcity of Nexus 6 – although he actually said Nexus 7 and clarified later – stocks, saying that they were “unable to secure sufficient inventory to meet the demand that we had forecasted”.

Chief Business Officer, Omid Kordestani addressed Chromecast and advised that the ‘Cast’ button had been tapped over a billion times now. This billion ‘casts’ was the result of being the Number 1 streaming device sold in the US according to market research firm NPD.

That’s some interesting statistics. Hopefully we see some further growth from Google Play, and more importantly some better stock levels of the Nexus 6 as we move further into 2015. If you want to have a listen, check it out below :

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
