Can this be true? #1 (permalink) Sat Mar 24, 2012 12:53 pm   Can this be true?
 

Hi, this number is difficult for me to grasp. According to Wikipedia almost 1 million new Android devices are activated every single day. This is incredible:

On December 20, 2011, Andy Rubin announced that Google was activating 700,000 new Android devices daily.

Two months later, on February 27, 2012, Andy Rubin announced that Google was activating over 850,000 Android smartphones and tablets daily.

If this trend continues, there soon will be more Android devices than machines running on Windows.
