Re-Thinking HR: What Every CIO Needs to Know About Tomorrow's Workforce


According to a tweet from Google Android creator Andy Rubin, more than 300,000 of the devices are being activated every day.

Google Android creator Andy Rubin said Dec. 8 that there are now 300,000 Android phones being activated each day.

The stat, which Rubin delivered via this rare tweet late Wednesday, came two days after he reiterated at D: Dive into Mobile that Google was seeing more than 200,000 activations of Android smartphones each day. Rubin's tweet was seconded by Android developer Dan Morrill.

Google's count of Android activations has been vociferously smacked down by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who skewered Google's claims of Android being open and sporting 200,000 daily activations in October.

Jobs countered that Apple is seeing 275,000 daily activations of devices based on iOS, including the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Apple sold more than 14 million iPhones in the fourth quarter, but Android handsets are also flying off shelves at a more modest clip of 9 or 10 million per month.      

ComScore said Android market share makes up 23.5 percent of U.S. smartphone sales, trailing Apple, at 24.6 percent, and RIM, at 35. 8 percent.
