What is the difference between Google and Android?

Android, originally registered as Android Inc, was purchased by Google in 2005 powering a range of devices including graphic tablets and smartphones, for example. The Apache license allows Google to release the code in an open source manner (Debian no date: online). Google, on the other hand, is an internet search company that makes a profit from AdWords. Google, unlike Android, have a range of web-based products, such as, GMail, Google Docs and Google Maps, for instance.
