Today at Motorola’s DROID Razr press event, Eric Schmidt was kind enough to deliver a few numbers on the continued success of the Android platform worldwide. According to Schmidt, there are now over 1.3 million Android activations each day. And no, that’s not a typo. That’s just a number which represents a 44% increase since June, when Andy Rubin claimed that there were 900,000 activations occurring daily. Additionally, he stated that there are now 480 million Android devices that are active worldwide.
So how about a round of applause for Google and the Android team? No matter how much iOS devices are sold, there obviously a lot of people who are buying Android devices.
