If you just bought an Android phone, Galaxy Tab, Nook, or Sony Internet TV and activated it today, you are certainly not alone.
That's what Google engineering VP and Android poster boy Andy Rubin wrote in a quick Twitter message. It is a stunningly high number and highlights just how much the little platform is continuing to grow.
Just this past summer, Google was touting that 200,000 Android gadgets were getting activated every day. That's a huge jump in a very short period of time.
In September, Apple noted it was activating 230,000 iOS devices - iPhones and iPads - every day. If that number is still on the mark, then this news is pretty big.
Either way, though, Android continues to astound everyone. Just like almost everything Google does, it is going beyond expectations.
In addition to all the Android phones, this number would appear to also include all those Android-powered tablets, most notably the Samsung Galaxy Tab, as well as Barnes & Noble's Nook e-reader, which uses a specialized version of the Google mobile OS.
The only real to question is - how high can it go?

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
