It’s only a symbolic victory, but Apple’s stock closed higher than Google’s for the first time ever.

Apple closed the day at $633.38. Google closed at $632.32

Per-share prices don’t really mean anything, but it’s an interesting note given the increasing competition between the companies.

Steve Jobs thought Android was a direct ripoff of the iPhone and vowed to beat it before he died. Meanwhile, Google seems to be making a big move into consumer electronics and is buying a phone company.

In market cap — the real measure of a company’s value — Apple has been way ahead for a long time. It’s now worth more than twice as much.

Here’s a screenshot for posterity:
