Tweet Andy Rubin 500000 Android devices activated daily 

According to Andy Rubin, the co-founder of Android Inc, now Senior Vice President of Mobile at Google, the number of activated Android devices are over 500.000 every day. The claimed numbers seems reasonable as they are following a trend we saw back in December last year.

It seems like the number of new Android devices activated daily increases with 100.000 per quarter. If the trend continues like this the next year, number of activated Android devices in August 2012 would be one million device activations per day. The one million mark also matches the 4.4% weekly growth rate tweeted by Rubin.

Lol, everytime Andy Rubin tweets Android growth stats i remember the Android haters last year claiming it couldnt take the top spot from Symbian, speaking of Symbian, why has Nokia stopped posting how many Symbians are activated a day??? They were more than happy to last year, whats made them change their mind??? hehe...
Absolutely amazing how fast its grown, it is actualy sucking the life out of some of its competitors, cant wait for Ice Cream Sandwich to be completely revealed, i get the feeling this is just the beginning of world domination.

Android has shown what it is capable of. Now it's time it shows more stability. Android, compared to other OS, is a little bit unstable. I hope they're going to get it all done with the Ice Cream.
BTW, it'd be good to see another The growth of Android - A visual tour...again.

True, specially when comparing to apps for iOS or even Palm Pre. Lots of FC in their Android counterpart.

iOS is in its 5th version while Android's version 3. Hopefully they'll be fully bugless in a near future.
