    300,000 Android Phones Activated a Day

    Google is claiming that 300,000 Android phones are activated each day. A million phones every three days or so seems a bit high, don’t you think?

    While Android's success has been well-documented, it's still hard to wrap your head around the idea that 300,000 Android phones are being activated every day. And yet that's just what Andy Rubin, Google's vice president of engineering, claimed last night on his Twitter account.

    “We are blown away to report over $20 billion in revenue and over $4 billion in after-tax earnings—both all-time records for Apple,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “iPhone sales of 14.1 million were up 91 percent year-over-year, handily beating the 12.1 million phones RIM sold in their most recent quarter. We still have a few surprises left for the remainder of this calendar year.”

    365/3 = 122
    122 * 1 million = More success for 2011..

    (Even though this includes newly owned Samsung Galaxies..)

    Yes, you read that right, 120,000,000 iOS devices have been sold to date. This is the figure that Apple publicly released at their recent music event, and here’s the specific device breakdown of the sales:

    iPhones sold: 67.6 million – 56% of iOS devices sold
    iPads sold: 7.2 million – 6% of iOS devices sold
    iPod touch sold: 45.2 million – 38% of iOS devices sold

    The number one reason cited by developers who favor iOS is that Apple makes the most-wanted devices for consumers. One of the reasons that Apple has such a high-demand product is because it exerts lots of control over the platform and the end-to-end user experience. Not surprisingly, that control comes at a high price, and developer’s cite Apple’s controlling nature as the biggest reason not to develop for the platform.
    Conversely, the adaptability and openness of Android is cited as its biggest strength by developers. The fact that so many potential devices can use Android opens up possibilities and usage scenarios that developers have yet to fully implement. Still, the downside of this adaptability is the inevitable fragmentation and testing problems that arise when so many different types of devices — or even form factors of the same device type — exist.
    Having spoken with Android and would-be Android developers at length, I know that device testing is one of the areas that developers run into the most issues with Android. While an iOS developer can buy an iPad or an iPod touch or iPhone off the shelf and do lots of hands-on device testing before releasing their app, Android developers are often limited to whatever device they happen to have from a wireless carrier and the Android SDK emulator. That means that making sure that apps look and act a certain way on both the HTC EVO 4G and the Motorola Droid X is difficult unless the developer happens to own both devices. And that’s before you even get into the quagmire of what version of Android to target.

    You do know that 122 million is greater than 120 million right?!
