That equation's changing of course, with Apple moving away from Google Maps, and possibly Google search. The 4x figure was up to the end of 2011, and we've had a big push towards content sales with Google Play this year, as well as the widening gap in market share.
It'll be interesting to see if there's some way to gauge Google's relative earnings from the two platforms over 2012. One of the few reasons to actually want another big lawsuit!
