Android activations now total 500,000 a day: Google(Read article summary)
Android phones are selling by the bucketload – no surprise to Android watchers.
Way back in December – gazillions of years in Tech Time – Google announced that it was activating 300,000 Android phones a day, a boost from the 200,000 activations it had logged a few months before. Android, in other words, was ascendant. And guess what? Android ain't done climbing.
Of course, all those activations do not mean that everyone else can go home now. As Sam Oliver points out over at Apple Insider, "while Android has grown in market share, Apple's profit share has eclipsed the rest of the mobile industry. In fact, one recent analysis showed that Apple could buy rivals Nokia, Research in Motion, HTC and Motorola Mobility all at once with its estimated $70 billion in cash," Oliver added.
