Andy Rubin, the California-based dude who developed Android and sold it to Google way back in 2005, has tweeted some staggering figures relating to his baby.
According to Rubin: “There are now over 500,000 Android devices activated every day, and it's growing at 4.4% w/w”.
That figure is up quite a bit from six months ago, when Rubin reported that 300,000 Android devices were being activated every day.
Of course, that figure includes both smartphones and tablets.
In April this year, Andy received a promotion from Vice President of Engineering at Google to Senior Vice President. Well deserved, it would seem.
In completely unrelated news, Andy’s Twitter page tells us: “It takes about 140 liters (37 US gal) of water to grow the coffee beans needed to produce one cup of coffee”. That’s just 0.00028 litres from each daily new Android user.
