200,000 Android Activations Every Day
Remember how exciting it was, at the beginning of the year, to hear that 60,000 new Android phones were being activated each day? Then at Google I/O in May, Vic Gundotra announced it was up to 100,000 a day. And then not long after, that number got bumped up to 160,000. At the Technomy conference yesterday, Google CEO Eric Schmidt annouced that, thanks to new devices like the Droid X, Google is activating 200,000 Android devices every day.
That’d be 6,000,000 a month if it stayed at that rate, but Schmidt also pointed out that the rate hasn’t leveled off at 200,000– we’re still in the middle of huge growth.
In addition, he talked about being “ecstatic” about the revenue that Android is generating for Google. Check out his remarks:
