Android Activations Top 700K Per Day: Rubin
Andy Rubin, Google's senior vice president for mobile services, has said that the Android operating system has continued to achieve phenomenal growth rate and is activated on more than 700,000 devices sign up for the operating system every day. Reveling Android's global success, Rubin said on Google+ and Twitter, “There are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day”. Rubin also clarified in his follow-up post on Google+ that the 700,000 activations per day only included new devices not resold ones. "We count each device only once. Activations means you go into a store, buy a device, [and] put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service,” he clarifies.
