Google this afternoon announced its Q2 2012 earnings, reporting 21 percent growth year over year for revenue, at $10.96 billion. GAAP net income was listed at $2.79 billion, up from $2.51 billion for the second quarter of 2011.

As of the second quarter, Google reports having $43.1 billion cash and equivalents, and gained about 5,600 employees for the quarter.

Motorola revenue also is listed in this earnings sheet, since Google completed its acquisition of the company. Revenue for "hardware and other" was listed at $1.25 billion, with $843 million coming from the mobile side, and $407 million from the home side.

We'll be kibitzing on the conference call shortly to keep an ear out for any Android-related news.
