Android Activations Now at 300,000 Per Day

Can we just deem this the “Week of Google” already?  First Gingerbread, then the Nexus S, then Honeycomb, Google Maps 5, and now this new tweet from Andy Rubin?  Can it get any better than this?  How does 300,000 Android activations per day sound to those of you on team good guy?  That’s the word we’re hearing from the head honcho himself.  Amazing.

  • does this number include “activations” that occur after the phone is rooted or a new rom is added? After the cache and everything is wiped, you have to “activate” the phone again. Surely this is not being counted as an “activation” is it?

      The number of users rooted/romming is a small percentage. 98% are normal consumers just buying a phone. Of those 98%, 95% of them probably don't even know Android is on their phone, let alone what rooting is.

    Congratulations Android!! (and thank you!!) For fun, go read some of the comments at BGR (sorry to divert traffic Kellen). Its like watching the 7 stages of grief unfold before your eyes. (“Don't hate the playa….”) If you don't own stock in Apple, there's nothing to cry about — your fav IOS device prices will go down (lessons forgotten from Apple v MS). That's Econ 101. Enjoy it!
