Andy Rubin: over 300,000 Android phones are being activated every day

December 9th, 2010 at 7:35 AM

Google’s VP of Engineering, Andy Rubin, utilized the social-network Twitter to drop some knowledge on the world. Mr. Rubin notes that his company’s mobile operating system is now being activated on over 300,000 phones each and every day. That’s over 2.1 million phones every week and over 9 million phones every month. Back in August of this year, Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced that Android activations had just passed the 200,000 per day mark — and subsequently set off a little activation brouhaha with rival Apple. For the sake of comparison: the latest numbers from iOS maker Apple (released in September 2010) revealed that there were over 230,000 new iOS activations happening every day.

The verbiage used in both of the companies statements is interesting. Rubin notes 300,000 phones activated each day (indicating the number does not include tablets or other devices running Android, but could include users upgrading), while back in September, Jobs noted there were 230,000 new iOS activations each day (indicating that Apple’s numbers include other iOS devices like iPads and iPod touchs, but not users upgrading).

Either way, Google is now on pace to activate over 10 million Android phones per month. That is an impressive figure any way you slice it.
