Google CEO Larry Page unscathed by Apple’s supposed “Thermonuclear War” against Android

In a recent interview conducted by The Wire on Google’s CEO Larry Page, he was asked to respond to the late Steve Jobs’ statement that Apple was going to have a “Thermonuclear War” against Android. Page simply replied with, “How’s that working out so far?”

It’s no secret that Android has been on a recent tear, especially this past year with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S III and Nexus 7. With Android exponentially rising, this gives Page no reason to worry about Apple’s constant battle with their OS regardless of their recent court wins against Samsung and Android’s other vendors.

Page also added, “Android has been very successful, and we’re very excited about it.” We’re all very much excited about Android as well, especially for what it has to offer in this year.

Taking court battles aside, do you think Apple ever has a chance at bringing Android down? Or is it far too late for that now? Sound off in the comments!

Today at the Web 2.0 Summit, Google CEO Eric Schmidt showed us a device running Android 2.3, and it looked remarkably like a Samsung device! The device in question may be the rumored Samsung Nexus S, and as we continue to hear more about the yet unannounced device, Eric Schmidt did say that Gingerbread will be here “in the coming weeks”.

We’ll likely see an Android 2.3 SDK very soon, then updates will start to roll out and new device launches pre-installed with Gingerbread. I’d still like to get more information on that smartphones Eric was handling today…how about you?
