Updated 4 years ago

Google (GOOG) CEO Eric Schmidt gave a brief state-of-the-Android address during Motorola’s big Droid RAZR press event on Wednesday and revealed that 1.3 million Android devices were being activated daily and that there were now 480 million Android devices active worldwide. Andy Rubin, Google’s senior vice president of mobile, said this past June that Google was seeing roughly 900,000 Android activations per day, meaning daily Android activations have increased by around 44% over the past three months.
