60,000 Android devices being shipped each day

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:33PM EST

This week at MWC, Google CEO Eric Schmidt proudly proclaimed that Android handsets are being shipped at the rate of 60,000 per day worldwide. That is a blistering pace of over 1.8 million handsets per month and over 21.8 million handsets per year. Schmidt did not indicate whether the recipient of a “shipped” handset was an end-user or a retailer; however, the number is impressive either way. As handset manufacturers continue to embrace Android and re-focus on hardware production this number is sure to climb even higher.
