Google

Google's Larry Page made it to the third-quarter earnings call (after missing the Q2 call). And in his opening remarks, he dropped the same activations numbers on us that we heard back in late September. More than a half-billion Android devices in the field, with more than 1.3 million activations per day. It's not overly surprising that the numbers haven't really changed in a month -- we just like shiny new things like everybody else.

And, as we pointed out this morning after Verizon's earnings call, it's still heads and shoulders above every other platform not named iPhone.

We're kibbitzing on the earnings call now. You can listen live after the break.
