    According to the CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, Android is now shipping on around 200,000 devices a day. That’s a million a week, even if the little green tyke takes a break for weekends. If we consider where this number lay during the past few months, Android is experiencing 330% growth since April and a 100% growth since last month (60,000 and 100,000 activations daily, respectively). These figures certainly tie in with the 886% we reported on just a few days ago.

    “Trust me that revenue is large enough to pay for all of Android’s activities and a whole bunch more,” he said. “I should also say that we love the success of the iPhone because the iPhone also uses Google’s search and we get a chunk of that revenue when people search on the iPhone.”

    Is that a passive dig at Apple? You decide.
