Earlier this month, Google announced that it was logging 550,000 Android activations a day, up from half a million in June and 400,000 in May. Big numbers, obviously. Here's an even bigger one: 700,000. In a post to Google+ this week, Android chief Andy Rubin said Google was activating an incredible 700K Android devices – from tablets to smartphones – every day, across the world. 

"[F]or those wondering, we count each device only once (ie, we don't count re-sold devices), and 'activations' means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service," Rubin added in a follow-up message.

That's 400,000 to 700,000 in the space of a few months. So how long can Android sustain that kind of pace?
