Eric Schmidt talks up new Android numbers

Google’s Eric Schmidt, speaking at the Motorola event today, has just dropped some new figures on which show the tremendous growth of Android.  According to him, Android is now at 480 million install base and is growing at a rate of 1.3 million per day.  As for tablets, they account for a 70,000 per day (way behind you know who), but growing incredibly fast.  Crazy numbers considering where we were just a few months back at Google IO.
