So how's Android doing these days? During today's Q1 2011 earnings call, Jeff Huber, senior vice president of commerce and local, announced that some 350,000 Android devices are being activated every day. That's almost 2.5 million a week, folks. That's a lot of devices.
As for the Android Market, it's seen more than 3 billion applications installed. Not too shabby, eh, especially when you consider it's a 50 percent increase over the fourth quarter of 2010, Google said.
During the Q&A, the question of how that 350,000 per day breaks down by device and region was asked. Jeff Huber responded that they do not differentiate by device, but they expect a huge growth from the Tablet sector as more and more devices are released. He went on to say that Android has a large presence in the U.S, Europe, Japan and Korea; and the international market is showing very strong growth.
