700,000 Activations Per Day for Android
Android will rule the World. Or not. May be this will be with smartphones or may be by starting with small things like Kombusto. Is this the New Skynet (Terminator) ?
Small green robot had 350,000 activations per day back in April and 500,000 this summer. Now it has 700,000 per day according to Andrew Rubin, Android executive at Google.
And this does not even count the Wi-Fi Tablets…
According to Rubin, each device is only counted once and this does not take in account resold smartphones. Activation = buying a phone + activate it via a carrier subscription.

“These activation figures go some way to explaining how Android controls 44.2 percent of the American mobile phone market, considerably more than Apple, Windows Phone and Blackerry.
Google also announced this week that there are currently 200 million Android devices activated worldwide, and if the phenomenal sales figures continue to rise then a further 200 million could be added in less than 10 months.”
