Google's Android chief Andy Rubin revealed on Twitter that there are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day!
Last night, Google Android chief Andy Rubin announced via tweet and Google+ posting that Android has surpassed 700,000 daily activations. He further clarified what he meant by activations in a later posting on Google+:
For those wondering, we count each device only once (ie, we don't count re-sold devices), and 'activations' means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service.
700,000 is certantly an impressive number, one boosted by the recent launch of devices like the the Droid Razr, Galaxy Nexus and the rest of the Samsung Galaxy S II line. Back in December of 2010, Rubin tweeted that Android had reached a level of 300,000 daily activations.
