When last we heard from Eric Schmidt back in late June, the Google CEO was dropping the bombshell that some 160,000 Android devices were being activated every day. Fast forward to, well, now, and that number has hit an even 200,000, Schmidt told reporters Wednesday at the Techonomy conference in Lake Tahoe, Nev. And that's doubled since the 100,000-device figure Google gave us at its IO developer conference in May.
And for those of you worrying about if Android actually costs Google money, Schmidt say mobile search ad revenue "easily pays for all Android development." So it's got that going for it, which is nice. [@gaberivera via Unwired View]
