Since conquering the smartphone marketplace with Android OS, moving into the Near Field Communication or NFC market isn't a big stretch for Google.
With encouraging numbers including a profit margin of 22.20% and an operating margin of 28.06%,

Google's scope in search business:
1) Android, a step by Google to serve its ads seamlessly across the mobile platform, is revving up nicely. With Android representing 75% of all mobile shipments shipped last quarter, I would say that Google's bet in Android could generate much higher revenues in the future.
2) Another Fact people tend to forget about Google is its ownership in YouTube, which is another area where Google can monetize through ads.
3) With the U.S. market for internet search still going gung-ho as the search business grew by 11 per cent since last December, I believe that Google fever is here to stay.
Google has increased its budget for Google Ventures to $300M/year from a prior $200M/year.

Research also shows that by 2015 media tablet shipments will reach around 50 percent of laptop shipments and Windows 8 is likely to occupy third position behind Google's Android and Apple iOS operating systems
Google gets more than 90 percent of its revenue from its search-engine business. Microsoft has spent the better part of a decade trying to challenge Google, but has so far, managed to capture only 15% of the market.
