300,000 Android Phones Activations Each Day

Back in August, Google made a splash when it announced that 200,000 Android phones were being activated every single day. The Android market had grown from the industrial-looking G1 to more phones than you could shake a stick at and it was showing in activation figures.

It was Eric Schmidt who revealed August's 200,000 figure at the Techonomy conference in Lake Tahoe. Schmidt said the search giant was activating 200,000 Android phones every day and that this was up from 60,000 per day in April, 100,000 every day in May and 160,000 in June. Now, just a few months on, Google has said they're activating 300,000 Android devices per day.

Android big-wig and Google Engineering VP Andy Rubin yesterday tweeted the news. Though it's impressive growth no matter what way you look at it, it's important to remember that Android activations include ebooks like B&N's Nook Color, and larger MIDs like the Galaxy Tab. This is similar to how Apple often includes iPod touches and iPads when quoting iOS user data.
