Andy Rubin tweets that Android activations have reached 300,000 per day

For the last couple days there has been speculation in some circles around the web that Android’s growth was slowing down and apparently Andy Rubin decided that it was time to put that notion to rest.

He tweeted just minutes ago that 300,000 Android phones are now being activated each day. This eclipses the last figure that Apple put out for iOS devices, which was 270,000 per day and of course included every device running iOS, rather than just phones.

Now at some point the growth curve is going to have to slow down simply because Android will reach a saturation point, but it doesn’t look like we’ve gotten there quite yet and with all the dual-core hardware coming down the pipeline I wouldn’t put money on it happening too soon.
