That's a lot

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?
