It's official - 300,000 Android handsets are activated every day
Andy Rubin tweeted in December that "over 300 000 Android phones [are] activated every day", and this was officially confirmed during Google's Q4 earning call.

Also, it was said that searches within Android increased tenfold, while mobile search grew 4 times. Furthermore, Google confirmed it's eager to embrace both tablets and smartphones, and pointed out that click to call ads are generating plenty of money. Happy days for the Mountain View-based company indeed.

Google's OS is definitely going from strength to strength, and it would be a matter of time before we know for sure how its new CEO will affect the company's direction.

this doesnt suprise me. Everyone I know (including me) ditches their Blackberry or other phone and gets a droid based phone. I am very happy with my Motorola Droid 2. I will only get droid based phone from now on.
