Andy Rubin recently announced on Twitter that Google is now activating over 300,000 Android devices per day, which is a pretty impressive number.
Back in August we heard that Google were activating 200,000 Android devices per day, so that is an increase of 100,000 Android devices on a daily basis in just fourth months.
That would work out at around 27 million Android devices for the current quarter, which is a pretty impressive number, and proof that Google’s Android OS is on its way to becoming one of the most popular mobile platforms available.
If you compare these figures to other companies, like Nokia who shipped 26.5 million smartphones in Q3, and Apple who shipped 14.1 million smartphones in the same quarter then Android is doing very well.
It will be interesting to see which platform comes out on top by the end of quarter 4 2010, but if these numbers are anything to go by we suspect Apple now has some serious competition in the form of Google Android.
